David Siggers, Broadmoor beat Live Oak

Broadmoor’s David Siggers accounted for four touchdowns and Jujuan Taylor had two crucial defensive plays as the Bucs defeated Live Oak 30-22 Thursday night in Broadmoor’s homecoming game.

Siggers scored on runs of 10, 11 and 4 yards and gained 174 yards on 14 carries. It was his fifth 100-yard game of the season.

Broadmoor improves to 4-2 and 2-1 in District 4-5A. Live Oak (2-4, 0-3) lost its third straight game.

“This game really could have gone either way,” Broadmoor coach Rusty Price said. “David Siggers really played well. He’s in great shape and also plays defense and is our return guy. There’s no quit in this Broadmoor team. We had guys step up and make plays tonight.”

“Broadmoor has a couple of players like Siggers who athletically were too much for us,” Live Oak coach Tut Musemeche said. “Our kids played hard. The difference in the game was Broadmoor won the 50-50 balls. They recovered their own fumbles, and their receiver went and got the ball on the decisive touchdown.”

Live Oak tied the game at 16 on the opening drive of the second half. The Eagles drove 81 yards in seven plays. Jordan Sellers had a 46-yard run. Kyle Knapps scored on a 7-yard run, and Knapps caught a two-point pass from Michael Claverie.

Broadmoor was three-and-out on its first two series of the second half. Claverie fumbled, and Broadmoor’s Deandre Jackson recovered at the Live Oak 43-yard line.

Broadmoor quarterback Ryan Sibley ran for 2 yards on fourth-and-1. On the next play, Siggers took a pitch and attempted a halfback pass. His pass hung in the air, but Earl Butler won the jump ball at the goal line to complete a 32-yard TD play. Brodrick Dellihue added the two-point conversion for a 24-16 lead.

The two teams exchanged punts. Live Oak then put together a 13-play, 72-yard drive. Will Higginbotham made a spectacular 24-yard third-down catch. Sellers had an 11-yard run. Higginbotham capped the drive with a 2-yard TD to cut Broadmoor’s lead to 24-22. Live Oak went for two, but Taylor intercepted Claverie.

“Taylor had a good game on defense,” Price said. “He also had a key sack.”

Broadmoor recovered the ensuing onside kick. Siggers raced 61 yards on the first play and capped the two-play drive with a 4-yard TD run to make it 30-22 with about two minutes remaining (the scoreboard was not functioning). Live Oak stopped Broadmoor’s two-point run try.

Live Oak picked up one first down on its final series. A Claverie fourth-down pass fell incomplete.

Dellihue added 84 yards rushing on 12 tries for the Bucs. Siggers had a 55-yard run in the first half on a fake punt play. However, he fumbled, and Live Oak’s Jules Laird recovered.

Broadmoor had seven fumbles but lost just one. The Bucs had 19 penalties for 151 yards.

Knapps also scored on an 8-yard run in the second quarter as Live Oak pulled within 16-8.
