Bremond Gets By Tenaha For 45th Consecutive Win
COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M commitment Roshauud Paul guided Bremond to 31 unanswered points for a 31-7 victory Friday against Tenaha in the Class 2A Division II, Region III championship game at Cougar Field.
Paul, a quarterback on the high school level and a two-time defending state champion at that, scored once in each quarter and racked up 270 rushing yards on 44 carries to lift Bremond to its 45th straight win -- a streak that began right after Tenaha knocked it out of the playoffs in 2013.
Bremond (14-0) had a field day defensively as well. It allowed 99 rushing yards to Tenaha (13-1) early in the first quarter and then held the Tigers to 13 total yards for the remainder of night amid heavy rain.
Christian Ashton gave Tenaha a 7-0 four minutes into the first quarter lead with a 44-yard run.
The Tigers threatened again their next drive, but Bremond hauled in an interception and Paul tied the game on a 14-yard run before the quarter ended.
Bremond built a 17-7 halftime lead with Paul's second touchdown and a 32-yard field goal from Gerardo Pence.
Paul added two more touchdowns in the second half to put the game out of reach and solidified a meeting next week with Flatonia in the state semifinal round.
Tenaha will return 28 of 36 players from its current varsity roster next season, including the team's leading passer, rusher, receiver and tackler.
