In the second quarter Lovejoy was called for a late hit on Bryan quarterback Malcom Gooden. On the play Gooden suffered a leg injury and was taken on the field on a cart. Gooden did give a thumbs up and he was being taken off the field.

Bryan’s lone touchdown in the first half came on a Du’wayne Paulhill one yard touchdown run. Karson Dillard replaced Gooden at quarterback and ran for the Vikings other touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Bryan will return to action September 3 to take on College Park at Merrill Green Stadium.
