The regular season was a success, but the real challenge begins now, in the postseason. This Friday Blanco takes on Boling in the first playoff game of the year. Blanco is coming into the game hot, having won three in a row.
It has taken ten games to get there, but Blanco has finally bested an opponent on the road. It had all the answers against Rogers last week, winning 35 - 13. No one had a larger role in the success than senior Jett Hood, who brought his A game into the contest. He earned two touchdowns and 99 yards rushing the ball. Hood has been a consistent playmaker for Blanco as this was the 3rd good game in a row from him.
As for Boling, it kept its home record unblemished after another positive outing on its own turf. Last week it came up short against East Bernard, falling 28 - 14.
Boling's defeat dropped it to 5-3 while Blanco's win brought it to 5-5. Boling's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Blanco defense that got six sacks against Rogers last week. We'll see if it is up to the challenge.
