Birmingham, AL – The eight ranked Briarwood Christian Lions (8-2, 6-1) dispatched the Hueytown Golden Gophers (8-2, 6-0) 31-13 Friday night at Lion’s Pride Stadium.  

The Lion’s defense held the 6A region 4 champion Golden Gophers to a season low 13 points while holding the potent Hueytown offense to just 235 total years in the regular season finale.  

Briarwood quarterback Jonah Carroll was true on 5 of 8 passes for 125 yards through the air and ran for a touchdown on the ground.  Running back Luke Prewett rushed for 98 yards and a score.  

Hueytown signal caller Reid LaFoy completed 17 of 26 passes for 82 yards and one pick while Roydell Williams lead the Gophers on the ground with 149 rushing yards and a pair of touchdown runs.  

The Lions begin their post season run by hosting the Valley Rams (5-5, 3-3) next Friday night at Lion’s Pride Stadium.  Hueytown plays host to the Eufaula Tigers (5-5, 3-3).
