After tough loss to Northwest, Blair bounces back


Note: All statistics compiled from the Washington Post.

On Friday evening, Blair football fans were pleasantly surprised to see their Blazers lay a 35-0 smack down on Einstein. The Blazers ran the ball down their throats and even scored their first passing touchdown of the year. Senior running backs Jermaine Jack and Felix Ruiz ran hard and combined for almost 250 yards rushing.

The game was one-sided with the Blazers powerful offensive line just abusing the much smaller Einstein front four. The Blazers scored on runs of 38 yards, 22 yards, 43 yards, and 55 yards. By breaking these big time runs they just broke the backs of the Titans.

The Blazers were able to put up their first points in the passing game this season with a 28-yard touchdown strike from senior quarterback Arie Piesert to fellow senior Avon Jackson. Jackson who laid some ferocious crack back blocks throughout the game caught the cornerback playing the run and found himself in the back of the end zone for an easy touchdown catch.

The Blazers kicking game was a bit suspect with junior kicker Noam Dror missing two extra points. He later got on track but in a tough game those missed kicks could have been fatal.

Defensively the Blazers were able to post their second shut out of the season and only allowed Einstein running back 12 yards on the ground. They also got a safety in the closing minutes of the game.

This week the Blazers did a great job rebounding from a tough loss at the hands of Northwest to slaughter Einstein, but next week they will face there toughest challenge of the season, the Seneca Valley Screaming Eagles. The Eagles are the Washington Post top ranked team in the area so the Blazers will need everything they have in order to compete.
