Bishop Brossart 15 Paris 6


Recommended Posts

Mustangs had to earn this one, under challenging conditions akin to a Mud Wrestling pit following either steady heavy afternoon rains, or Puck leaving on the irrigation system.

Brossart Quarterback Jacob Leicht was picked off on our first play from scrimmage, and while the Hounds were unable to threaten, their punt pinned the Mustangs back at the 1 yard line.  It would take Leicht the remainder of the period and nearly three minutes of the second to negotiate those 99 yards, and it wasn't until the officials unstacked the pile on fourth and goal, that it was determined that Leicht had crossed the goal line.  David Govan made easy work of the two-point conversion following two encroachment calls against the Hounds, and the Mustangs led 8-0 at the break.

Neither team would dent the scoring column in the third stanza, and it wouldn't be until Austin Schadler blocked a Paris punt attempt from our endzone, when David Govan would fall of the football for our second score of the night.  Andrew Schwartz tacked on the extra point.

The Mustangs came within 20 seconds of posting the shutout, as the Hounds capped off a 55 yard drive with a Zion Jackson run, to score with that much time remaining in the game.  The two-point conversion was no good, and this one went into the history books as a 15-6 Brossart victory, our ninth consecutive.  We will attempt to run the table next Friday night as regular season play concludes with an independent game, billed "Battle of US27" as we take on the Pendleton County Wildcats at Sharp Middle School.   

With the win, the Mustangs earn the Class 1A, District 5 top seed and will play two home games, should we defeat Paris in a re-match in three weeks at the MAC.

Why were both teams wearing white? 

Good question!!!

We caught it immediately that they were not wearing dark uniforms.  They were off-white, or light grey perhaps, but definitely not "Dark, Contrasting." 

Not Paris admins finest hour, they also had to seek volunteers to serve as chain gang just prior to kick-off.

I think they are a light gray.  They had to recruit a chain gang when we played there this year also.  It ended up being a split crew, 2 of our fans and 2 of theirs.
