Turnovers Too Much to Overcome in Blackman vs Independence

Independence would add another touchdown in the second quarter to take a 14 point lead. That would be all the scoring action in the first half.

In the second half, Blackman turned it over and Independence didn’t take long to capitalize on the good field position by scoring a touchdown.

After giving up another turnover, the Eagles would score again leading the Blaze 28-0. If the Blaze had any chance at a comeback they would need to start it now. However, they would have another turnover that ended their hopes.
