Second Defeat for Varsity Football

Ava Alan, Reporter

On a cold, rainy friday night on Naish field, raindrops were not the only thing falling, as the Bishop Blanchet Braves fell to O’Dea’s fighting Irish 27-0. The September 27th match saw six starters hobble to the bench as under class stepped in to take their spots. The team was outplayed in every aspect of the game, but never lost hope.

      “I stayed motivated during the game because I never lost hope that we were going to make a comeback,” said Junior Tyler Kormon.

“It was also motivating watching my teammates continue to give it their all and stick together.”

 It was a tough loss for the Braves with seven of their starters out and they were also coming back from a big loss against Kennedy Catholic last Friday. Junior Sean Harman played well in his new position as right tackle. Junior Tyler Kormon, tight end, pushed himself and played well having many tackles against O’Dea. 

        Does this loss affect the team’s next games especially following a crushing loss to Kennedy Catholic the week before? What are the Braves planning to bring to the field against their next opponent? 

    Senior Captain Jack Jarvis, was optimistic. “I think this game helped show us how to contend with two of the best teams in the state on defense,” said Jarvis. “We are planning to bring just a lot of aggression and smash mouth playing against the next teams we play.”

      The Brave’s next game is at home against Rainier Beach.
