Pacelli captures Broocelli Jug

Pacelli won the Broocelli Jug Friday night and earned a No. 4 seed in state playoffs beginning Nov. 22.

Brookstone's 48-0 defeat is its most lopsided since the two teams began their longtime rivalry in 1971.

The teams began vying for possession of the Broocelli Jug in 1976 when the late Pacelli coach, Nathan Rustin, and the late Brookstone coach, Joe Sparks, developed the idea.

The Vikings used a pounding defense and a fleet offense to dominate Brookstone throughout the game. Pacelli sidelined it usual passing game to run for 328 yards on the ground.

"They just flat out outplayed us," Brookstone coach Steve Sparks told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. "Offensively, defensively, they took it to us and we didn't have the answers for it."
