Indian Creek senior Brenden Smith scored three touchdowns, and the Braves’ defense scored off three interceptions holding off visiting Providence in the second half to take a 41-21 victory Friday night.
Smith had an interception, caught two passes, both for touchdowns, and ran for a third score to help the Braves improve to 2-2 on the season.
Until the third quarter, the game was nothing like what the final score showed.
The Braves led 12-0 at halftime, scoring off a couple Providence interceptions. They pushed the lead to 20-0 on sophomore Hunter Pottorff’s 27-yard interception return for a touchdown. And Smith’s third score gave them a 28-0 lead with 5:46 left in the third.
