WIMBERLEY — Running back Jonathon Brooks set two school records as the Hallettsville Brahmas outlasted Lorena 61-48 in a Class 3A, Division I game at Texan Stadium Friday night.

Brooks rushed for 501 yards on 27 carries and scored all nine of Hallettsville’s touchdowns, both school records.

Brooks scored on runs of 3, 69, 25, 1, 36, 29, 46 yards and 52 yards as the Brahmas (11-2) advanced to the state quarterfinals to play district opponent Columbus, a 38-22 winner over Yoakum.

Hallettsville led 26-13 at the half before a track meet broke out in the finals two quarters as the Brahmas and Panthers (9-3) combined for 70 second-half points.

Brooks’ night overshadowed the play of Lorena quarterback Ben Smedshammer, who accounted for four Leopard touchdowns.

Smedshammer rushed for 155 yards and threw for 231 yards.
