Week 10 BCP Six-Man Roundup

Where has the season gone?

It seems like just yesterday teams were lacing up the cleats for the first time since last December, yet here we are at the end of the regular season.

With six area Class 1A districts of just three or four teams, there’s not much drama in the works this week. For most of the teams in our area, this week is about solidifying playoff positioning and ending the season on a high note.

BCP Week 6 Six-Man Roundup

 

While last week could be considered an uneventful week for most squads in the Big Country, which posted 14 wins in limited action, it’s one loss that sent shockwaves through the state’s six-man ranks.

Strawn, which won the Division II state championship last year, saw its four-game winning streak snapped in a 34-23 loss to still-unbeaten Garden City.

BCP Week 5 Six-Man Roundup

Big Country teams have not had many problems testing the lights on the scoreboard this season, and Week 5 was another example.

In a week that saw Stamford put up an astonishing 90 points in an 11-man game, several area six-man squads gave the Bulldogs a run for their money.

Aspermont knocked off Lubbock All Saints 76-28, Blanket was an 81-53 winner over Gordon and Knox City beat Bryson 84-38. It marked the second time this year that the Greyhounds eclipsed the 80-point plateau.

The closest any area six-man team came to matching Stamford’s output was Stephenville Faith, with an 86-8 win over Cherokee. Imagine if that game had gone the distance how many points Faith would have posted.

BCP Week 3 Six-Man Roundup

Shutouts are very uncommon in six-man football, and last week there were only 24 of them statewide. Four involved teams from the Big Country.

Area teams were 3-3 in such games with Blanket topping Lingleville 46-0, Robert Lee taking Santa Anna down 60-0 and Jayton blanking Chillicothe 56-0.

Throckmorton was the only area team to be on the wrong end of the scoreboard in such a game that didn’t feature two Big Country squads. The Greyhounds were kept off the board in a 46-0 loss to Lubbock Home School.

BCP Week 2 Six-Man Roundup

After a series of shocking results in the opening week of the season, this past weekend was devoid of such upsets.

One of the early season surprises has been the Aspermont Hornets, who have knocked off Newcastle (66-18) and Jayton (76-38) in succession to open 2018.

The matchups last week we were looking forward to were Eden-Rotan, Lometa-Blanket and Loraine-Bronte, all of which were expected to be close affairs. Unfortunately, the Eden-Rotan matchup was washed out by the severe weather that hit the Big Country last week.

BCP Week 1 Six-Man Roundup

The Big Country’s six-man teams posted a sub-.500 record on the opening weekend of the season, going a combined 16-21.

Among the biggest developments in what was an abnormal week for this area was the shocking end to one of the longest winning streaks in the state — regardless of classification.

That was by defending Class 1A Division II state champion Strawn in the Jayton Jaybird Classic , where the Greyhounds were knocked off 51-18 Saturday by McLean, now the top-ranked in Division I.
