The Broughton Capitals (4-2, 1-0) earned their first Cap 8 conference win 52-26 at Millbrook (5-1, 0-1).

This had the makings of the game of the night but it became lop sided early.

By the third quarter Broughton was a head 31-14.

In the fourth quarter Broughton's Chris Mangus takes a pitch 40 yards for another Capital touchdown. The Caps led 45-20.

Millbrook didn't go down without a fight, McFarland found Corey Cooper on a deep 80 yard pass and run. But Broughton finishes it off 52-26 with a Cooper to Parrish Crowder touchdown.
