The Panthers dominated the Ingram Warriors in game #4.
After kicking off to the Warriors and the defense got the ball over on downs, Blanco struck pay-dirt on the first offensive play, with a 36 yard TD run by Aikman Elrod. Elrod passed to Devlin Moore for the PAT, and Blanco quickly jumped out to a 8-0 lead.
The defense stuffed Ingram on their next series, with Hunter Goodman making a solo tackle for a loss, and Blanco took over on downs at the Warrior 15 yard line. Carson Kipp only needed two carriers to make his way in the end zone, giving the Panthers a 14-0 lead.
Alex Juarez took over the defense, making three solo tackles in a row, including a QB sack, forcing another turnover on downs.
Blanco again only needed one play to score, this time with Logan Dodd going 25 yards on a counter to the end zone. Blanco attempted to kick the PAT, but the snap forced Kyle Gray to roll out, where he kept his cool and passed to Dru Ramirez in the end zone for the 2-point conversion, giving the Panthers a 22-0 lead.
Grant Garrow made a great hit in the backfield on the next Warrior series, forcing a fumble recovered by the Panthers. Carson Kipp picked up 12 yards on two carries down to the 5-yard line, and from there Aikman Elrod passed to Devlin Moore for another Blanco TD, making it 28-0 at the half.
Blanco again only needed two plays to score in the 2nd half, this time with Aikman Elrod taking the hand-off as a running back and going 58 yards for another TD, with a key block by Grant Garrow downfield making it an easy score. And for the first time (in a long time anyway), a Junior High squad successfully kicked the PAT conversion, as Kyle Gray booted it right down the middle, making it a 35-0 game.
The Warriors were able to punch in a score late in the game, but Blanco left Ingram with a 4-0 record and looking forward to facing the Marion Bulldogs this Thursday in Blanco.
