The Blazers victimize Wootton 20 -13 for first Homecoming win in 7 years

Tonight the Blazers were able to win homecoming for the first time since the 1994, 8-2 season under head coach Dale Miller. In Coach James Short's tenure as head coach he has been unable to win the big game and tonight his thirst for a homecoming win was quenched with a satisfying 20- 13 win over Wootton.

Senior Alfonso Angus had two long touchdown runs in the game. His game-breaking runs continuously swung the momentum towards the Blazers. His punishing running style gave them the edge over a smaller Wootton team.

The opening drive set the stage for the Blazers' dominance throughout the game. Junior Jermaine Jack capped the penalty-ridden drive with 15-yard dash that victimized the Wootton secondary for his first touchdown of the season.

The Patriots were able to put together a late drive in the fourth but a costly penalty cut their hopes of an upset short.

Even with the win the Blazers were disappointed with the total team effort. "It was too close of a game. We're a great team this year and the score should've been 35-0 or more. However I'm happy we won… all wins are welcome," said junior linebacker Nino Tran.
