Blazers beat Bengals

Football improves to 3-2 with easy win over Blake

On Friday night, the Blazers bounced back from a tough one point loss to Seneca Valley to slaughter the Blake Bengals 22-0. The Blazers were much bigger up front and dismantled Blake in every facet of the game.

The Blake game was Blair's best defensive effort of the season: the Blazers increased their shutout count to 3 and they were able to put 8 points on the board defensively with a safety by senior Ricky Campos and a fumble return for a touchdown by senior Cedric Mack.

The Blazers also showed off some trickery by calling an end around to speedy wide-out Mack. Mack had his best showing of the season both offensively and defensively. Along with the fumble return he picked off a pass, ran an effective end around, and also had a decent game receiving.

Blazer quarterback Arie Piesert also had his best game of the season, completing passes to four different receivers and nearly adding a touchdown to his season total of one. If it weren't for several dropped passes by Blazer receivers this game could have been much worse for Blake than it was.

The Blazers continue to improve and prepare for next week's
big showdown with speedy Paint Branch. Last year the Blazers lost 35-14 at PB but this year the game is Blair's homecoming and there will be 3,000 plus crazed Blazer fans in the stands cheering on their team.
