After being shut out in consecutive weeks by Sherwood and Northwood, the Blazers were desperate for their first victory facing a mediocre Blue Devil squad. Through the game’s first five minutes, it seemed as if Blair was primed to finally capture that elusive W.

With 10:04 remaining on the first quarter clock, senior running back Peter Gondor got the carry and burned four Springbrook defenders en route to a 36-yard touchdown run. Gondor failed to convert the two-point conversion, but Blair was off to a solid start up 6-0 on the Blue Devils.

However, Springbrook came roaring back, scoring twice in the first half to gain a 14-6 advantage. “We got a little complacent,” assistant coach Adrian Kelly said. “We made a couple of turnovers and mistakes. The kids were going both ways so I think fatigue set in.”

After being outscored a combined 94-6 over their last three outings, the Blazers will try to turn things around against Whitman next week. “Hopefully next week against Whitman, homecoming, we can bring out the same intensity [that we showed] during the first quarter.”

The varsity football team will play its next home game on Friday, Oct. 14 (Homecoming) against the Whitman Vikings.
