Tayshaun Butler ran for 231 yards, quarterback Drake McDaniel accounted for four scores and Brookville blazed its way into the Region 3C Championship with a 50-21 victory over Heritage.
They've grown accustomed to each other, but October's battle added a new wrinkle to the rivalry, one that will carry over in the minds of players when they line up Friday night.
The night started with a dedication to a former coach. It ended with the current one wearing all smiles.
Brookville takes the field at Stinger Stadium on Friday looking radically different than it did at the beginning of the season.
The Bees bring their high-octane run game to City Stadium, where E.C. Glass looks to continue its winning ways.
It was a fitting title, because the senior running back laid down the law, helping Brookville defend Stinger Stadium by fighting off visiting Amherst 36-21 in a clash between two Seminole District foes.
"We know how good they are," Heritage coach Brad Bradley said. "And if we need any reminder, all we have to do is look back to March 19."
LCA sustained its momentum in the second half for a 35-7 victory over the Bees at Liberty University's Williams Stadium.
After a perfect regular-season spring campaign, Brookville was stifled in the first round of the playoffs in April by a stout Liberty Christian team intent on revenge. The Bees haven't forgotten it.
Tayshaun Butler took center stage on Brookville's two opening series inside the wildcat package Friday night. Then he took his team on a wild ride.
It's been 43 days since Brookville handed Liberty Christian its only loss of this condensed season, cruising to a 25-14 victory.
Quarterback Drake McDaniel threw for a whopping 230 yards. Receivers made over-the-shoulder grabs. The defense held Heritage to just 144 yards of total offense. And the offensive line gave the Bees playmakers plenty of time to do their work.
