Although the Brewer Bears were shut out in the first half, the offense kept coming hard in the second half scoring 24 points against the #1 state ranked Bearcats of Aledo. The Bear defense gave up 67 points to the Bearcats, but they took a “never say die” attitude and fought hard against a tough rival. Bearcat fans said this was the toughest team played since their District opener against Mansfield Legacy.  The final score of the game was Aledo 67, Brewer 24, but the point spread did not tell the whole story of the fierce Bear play all throughout the game.
