While the Blaz­ers sur­ren­dered a quick touch­down on a 54-yard re­cep­tion by Con­nor Leis­ter for OJR (6-5), they buck­led down in a score­less fourth quar­ter.

It was Lacey’s se­cond touch­down after he and quar­ter­back Tommy Buchert con­nected on a 50-yard TD pass in the fi­nal minute of the se­cond quar­ter. The score gave Boone the lead for good after Mar­cus Martin’s 10-yard TD run lev­eled the score 14-14 with 2:41 left in the first half.

Buchert did dam­age on the ground in the first half with touch­down runs of 92 and 11 yards. For the night, he rushed for 103 yards on nine car­ries while Tan­ner Van­der­slice had 93 car­ries on 25 car­ries.
