Independence beats Briggs in the Columbus City Football League

Briggs quarterback Mason Dougherty (9) tries to get away from Independence's Damarco Sellers (22) and Robin Briggs (44) during the host 76ers' 54-14 victory Oct. 4 in the City League-South game Division.

A special teams error less than two minutes into the game set the tone for an Oct. 6 matchup between Briggs and Independence in which both hoped to be closer considering the stakes.

Both teams entered the City League-South Division matchup a game up and likely needed at least one win or more to secure a playoff spot in Division II, Region 7, but the host 76ers pulled off a win. 54-14.
