|Block loses another heartbreaker|
Block High has played four games and every game has been decided by five points or less.
The latest thriller took place in Mangham Friday as the Bears fell to the Dragons 21-19.
"Hopefully these games are building character for district," said Block coach Benny Vault. "But that's what these games are for, to show us what we need to work on."
Mangham got on the board first as quarterback Josh Wilson scored on a 1-yard run midway through the first period. Kyle King added the kick.
The Dragons went up 14-0 as Wilson completed a 5-yard scoring pass to
Block cut the lead to 14-7 at halftime a John Bloodsaw scored on a 1-yard run with 2:03 remaining in the second quarter.
The Bears pulled to within 14-13 midway through the third period as Hunter Key scored on a 1-yard run.
"Block has a great football team," said Mangham coach Bo Meeks. "They are some kind of fast and play hard for 48 minutes."
Wilson added to the Dragon lead with a 7-yard run. King's kick put the Dragons up 21-13 with 2:07 remaining in the third quarter.
Block cut into the Mangham lead as Curdarius Johnson and Chris Collins hooked up on a 47-yard scoring play. The try for two failed, leaving the Dragons with a two-pint lead.
Following a short punt, Block took over on the Dragon 10-yard line. A 5-yard pass was followed by an incomplete pass. Johnson was sacked and Block received an illegal perceiger penalty to set up a field goal attempt of 31 yards which was wide.
"It was a fast game," Vault said. "They have a lot of speed and we have speed."
Block hosts Montgomery Friday in Jonesville. It is the District 3-1A opener for both teams.
Montgomery dropped its first game of the season to Varnado by a 44-26 score last week.
"They have a quarterback who throws it everywhere," Vault said, referring to Cody Stroud, who completed 32 of 60 passes for 358 yards but had four intercepted against Varnado. "He is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds and is averaging 300 yards passing a game. We have to keep the ball away from him."
