BROOKVILLE â€” The Brookville Raiders came from behind to beat the St. Marys Flying Dutchmen 19-15 Friday night, thanks to a clutch 90-yard punt return from Braiden Smith in the fourth quarter.
Despite Brookville's offensive shortcomings in the first half, the defense played tough all night to keep the game in reach.
"The defense buckled down a lot more than we have in years. The red zone defense played super, and we created a couple of turnovers that helped us out," said varsity coach Chris Dworek.
