On Friday, September 29, the James Buchanan football team geared up to compete against the Clear Spring Blazers. After many tough losses and practices, the football team claimed a win. These two teams were set to face each other to create a local rivalry called the Mason Dixon Matchup. Whitetail Ski Resort donated a trophy to be awarded to the winning team. The night before the game, both teams ate spaghetti together in the Clear Spring cafeteria.

 

“It was a good and enjoyable experience.” Brady Bigler (10) said. “I had never done anything like that before.”

 

Under the Friday night lights, the football team achieved a win. This was the Rockets’ first win in two and a half years. Owen Stoner (11) scored four touchdowns and Jackson Ellis (12) scored one. With the Rockets coming out victorious with a score of 30-6.

 

The football team also gave credit to the student section as they cheered them on. The student section made posters and sang chants to show their spirit. At the end of the game all the fans stormed onto the field to celebrate the victory.

 

“It was a great feeling to have fans cheering for us.” Jaelin Carmack (12). “We couldn’t have done it without them.”

 

This win has given a boost of morale to the team and everyone is anxious to see what they do next.
