Oakland Starts Fast, Strikes Often

The Oakland Patriots traveled cross town Friday night to take on the Blaze of Blackman. Oakland came into the night off of a bye week and bolstering an undefeated record of 3-0. The Blaze, coming off a loss to out of state opponent, Shades Valley (AL) The difference in talent was noticeable immediately. On the opening drive the Blaze had their first punt attempt blocked by Patriot senior, Lazarius Patterson, setting up Oakland with great field position early in the first quarter.

The Patriots would take advantage instantly, when senior wide out, Zarius Gamble, caught his first of three touchdowns on the night. When talking Oakland football the name JaCoby Stevens has to be mentioned; it was several times on the night by the PA announcer. JaCoby would haul in a 79 yard bomb for a touch down and intercept Blaze quarterback, Connor Mitchell, three times on the night. Showing everyone in attendance why his reputation proceeds him and why he’s a LSU commit.

The Patriots went into the half up 24-0 and in complete control, with little to no resistance from the Blaze. The second half was more of the same as the usual studs from the Patriots continued to pour it on. The game would end with a running clock and disappointed Blackman fans, with a final score of 38-0.

Blackman Blaze (1-3) look to bounce back against Cookeville (4-1) next Friday in a conference showdown.

Oakland (4-0) will travel for the third time in as many weeks to take on conference foe Coffee County (1-4)
