KANNAPOLIS — A.L. Brown had its six-game winning streak snapped as it dropped a hard-nosed defensive battle with highly-ranked Hough 14-0 Friday night.
The Huskies, ranked sixth in 4A, pinned Brown inside their own 10-yard line twice and halted their hosts on two trips inside the red zone. It was the first Mecka conference loss for Brown.
The Wonders (6-2, 3-1) were shut out for the first time since 2004 when Eastern Randolph blanked them 28-0. It had been 130 games since then.
“Our stats were very similar,” Brown assistant coach Chip English said. “They made a couple of plays. We had opportunities and didn’t capitalize.”
Hough rushed for 220 yards to Brown’s 207. The Huskies forced an interception on Brown quarterback Andrew Ramirez.
“I felt like our defense played lights out,” English said. “They kept us in the game.”
Brown goes to Mallard Creek next.
