Rockhurst wins another close one
By Stephen Bubalo The Blue Springs Journal
With a majority of both teams’ playbooks thrown out the window due to rainy conditions during Friday night’s Class 6 state quarterfinal game between Blue Springs and Rockhurst, the Wildcats had a simple game plan.
“We gave it to big No. 7 all game,” Wildcats head coach Kelly Donohoe said of running back Darrian Miller carrying the load.
And for most of the game, Miller, as well as quarterback Kyle Brown at times, was able to get yardage and move the chains.
But once Blue Springs got into Rockhurst territory and especially the red zone, the offense continually to stall in a heartbreaking 7-0 defeat.
“I don’t know what to say,” Miller said.
“The bottom line is we didn’t do a good job penetrating in the red zone,” Donohoe said. “They just have a great defense in the red zone. The stinger is we felt we had opportunities.”
And they certainly did.
Blue Springs was in Rockhurst territory several times during the game – including being inside the 20-yard line twice – but thanks to a variety of things, the Rockhurst defense, the rain, whatever it was, they couldn’t put it in the end zone.
