Cardinals capitalize on Bobcat mistakes

Blue Hill quarterback Jason Poe goes airborne for more
yardage as Doniphan-Trumbull's Adam Gomez gets ready to
tackle Friday in Doniphan.

DONIPHAN — The Blue Hill football team found itself out-gaining Class C-2 No. 2 Doniphan-Trumbull 161-88 on the ground at halftime of Friday's game in Doniphan. The Bobcats also ran 39 offensive plays to the Cardinals' 23. But the score was still in Doniphan-Trumbull's favor with the Cardinals leading 28-6.

The second half was all D-T as the Cardinals ran away with a 34-12 victory. Doniphan-Trumbull's defense forced four turnovers in the first half, giving its offense ample opportunities to score. D-T's offense is known for its explosive attack, but it was the defense that stood out in the first half.

"Our guys played really well. They really worked well, studying what (Blue Hill) does," said Doniphan-Trumbull head coach Brent Breckner. "I think our kids were kind of tired of hearing how bad they were on defense... We still have a long way to go, but our kids came out ready to play defense for sure."
