The Riverside Brookfield High School football team has gotten off to a great start to the 2016 season, accomplishing a 4-1 record after defeating Wheaton Academy 32-0 at the Homecoming game this last Friday. Unfortunately, the one loss came from a 20-21 heartbreaker defeat to Aurora Central Catholic High School on September 16th.

The game came down to a Bulldog two-point conversion attempt on the one and a half yard line that failed.

“We tell the players that it never really comes down to one play because you have 130 plus plays throughout course of the game. This one just seemed to affect our ability to put points on the board,” explained Varsity coach Brendan Curtin.

The Bulldogs moved on from the defeat, beat Wheaton Academy convincingly, and are preparing for the rest of their schedule.

“We are off to a great start,” said coach Curtin when asked to describe their season.

The team’s biggest leaders, Keenan Scott and Filip Sofeski, helped add another win to their record.

“They have a great work ethic. They get the job done and they are a very passionate team,” said Curtin. “Our goal is to find a way to get better every week.”

The Bulldogs look to keep focused and strive for greatness, hoping to make another playoff run this season.  Their next game will be away against IC Catholic Prep at 7:15 PM in Elmhurst.
