Blackwell faces tough road game; Highland seeks 2nd straight W

September 26, 2013

With their annual show-down still two weeks away, Nolan County’s two six-man schools are both coming off wins as they take to the road this Friday.
It’s become a familiar feeling for Blackwell, which is off to a 4-0 start after last week’s 45-0 rout of Trent. But the Hornets, who are ranked No. 11 in the state in Division II Six-Man, could face their big-gest challenge yet. Blanket is 3-1 and ranked No. 15, and may have a little extra motivation after suffering a 52-6 loss to May, which is currently ranked No. 7 in Six-Man Division I.
