Huge second half leads Ganado Indians to blowout victory
By Michael Brooks
After a tense, defense filled first half, the Ganado Indians offense showed its full potential in the second half as the Indians passed their way to a 52-6 victory over the Bloomington Bobcats.
The Indian's defense came out ready to play. Bloomington started their first drive with the ball on their own 30. They were forced to punt after they amassed -1 yard.
Ganado’s offense couldn’t get anything going either and Ganado had to punt. As the Bloomington punt returner waited to receive the ball, he was levelled by an Indian de- fender. With the personal foul added on, the Bobcats took over on the Indian 36.
As the boo’s rained down from the visitors stands, the Bobcats used their good field position and drove down for the first touchdown of the game. After a failed two point conversion attempt, Bloomington held a 6-0 lead.
After the Bobcats score, the Indians answered back. Logan Hurt hit Riley Hurt for a 48 yard reception and the Indians took over at the Bobcat 10 yard line. Ganado was unable to get in the end zone, but they did pick up three points on a Giovanny Avalos field goal.
The game moved into the second quarter and as the half wound down, the Indian offense came to life.
