Village Christian's Five Field Goals Too Much for SCC

October 09, 1994

ORANGE — Village Christian's Ignacio Brache, who kicked field goals of 35, 42, 48, 55 and 56 yards in the Crusaders' 29-14 victory over Southern California Christian on Friday, is still striving for his ultimate goal--a Southern Section record for the longest field goal. Oak Park's Eric Affholter set the record with a 64-yarder in 1982.

"Once we crossed the (50-yard line), I didn't want to go any further because he was so hot," Village Christian Coach Mike Plaisance said. "I thought about taking two delay-of-game penalties--all of those things go through your mind--but, I didn't want (SCC Coach Bert Esposito) to think we were running up the score. We definitely wanted to give him a chance to break the record." Village Christian is 2-3.

Brache broke his Division X record with the 56-yard kick, which is two yards longer than last year's record. His five field goals also tie a Southern Section record held by four kickers for most field goals in a single game and break a school record held by Jason Jones, who kicked four in 1987.

Ken Buhler rushed for 156 yards in 18 carries, including a 78-yard touchdown run, for Southern California Christian (1-4).
