The Arcs jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter as an interception by Teondre Reynolds was returned 38 yards for a touchdown. The explosive Arcs offense scored the next 22 points of the game to make the score 28-0 before the Parma Redmen were even able to get on the scoreboard.

Arcs Quarterback, Stephen Shorts led the team with a pair of both rushing and passing touchdowns. The passing touchdowns were caught by Devin Jones and Alfonso Onunwor. Dontez Nation, Darryl McCluney and Jermaine Drake each added rushing touchdowns for the Arcs. The Arcs team defense was strong once again allowing only six points. This was the fourth game that the Arcs have allowed less than seven points. The other three games were shutouts for the Arcs.
This fall sports season featured three Brush Arcs teams winning the conference championship. Boys Golf won the first conference championship in twenty years, Boys Soccer won its first conference championship since 2004 and the Football Team won its third straight conference championship. After the game, all of the Arcs Fall Conference Championship teams were recognized at the Buffalo Wild Wings Post Game Party. Each conference champion athlete was presented with a Brush Arcs Conference Championship shirt at the party. It was a fun night celebrating the accomplishments of the Arcs! You could certainly "Feel the Power" of being an Arc!
We wish the Arcs Football team the best of luck heading into the playoffs this week! GO ARCS!!!
