Broncos win 2 straight games


After a 23-18 win over the North Houston Wolves Saturday afternoon the Madison County Broncos football team is now 2-0 in the month of the March.

“There has definitely been an improvement in our defense these last couple games,” said coach Herbert Gilbert when asked what has contributed to the team’s turnaround.

“Our running game has gotten a lot better, our defense has been solid and things are really starting to come together. We still need to work on minimizing our turnovers on the offensive side of the ball but overall we have been playing some good football as of late.”

After dropping their first game of the season at home, the Broncos have found their footing with back-to-back wins over the Texas Crusaders and Houston Wolves.

The Broncos started slow, trailing the Wolves at the end of the first quarter 12-0, but three touchdowns in the second quarter gave the Broncos a 17-14 lead heading into halftime.

“Turnovers got us in trouble early in the first half, but again our running game really held our offense together and we were able to put points on the board in the second,” Gilbert said.

Leading the Broncos’ high-powered offense in the second quarter were receivers Jeremy Anderson and Tyji Whaley. “[Whaley] and [Anderson] are definitely game changers,” added Gilbert. “Good things happen when the ball gets in their hands, they have been playing great.”

The Broncos scored the final touchdown of regulation beating the Wolves 23-18, capturing the teams’ second win of the young season.
