Montero also added a receiving touchdown.

“We came out ready to play,” said Bronson coach Russell Holley. “Franklin is extremely well coached and last year we got up big after one and they came back and made it a game.”

Senior Jesse Williams helped ensure there would be no comeback this year.

Williams had a 44-yard touchdown reception and a 62-yard punt return for a score. He also had a scoop and score, returning a blocked field goal 73 yards for a touchdown.

“This year we didn’t let up,” Russell said. “We finished the game.”

Donteau Jenkins had three rushing touchdowns for Bronson, which will host Munroe (Quincy) next Friday, Oct. 22.
