SEELEY LAKE - The Blackhawks made the most of a makeup game against the Troy Trojans Sept. 25 after falling to the Darby Tigers Sept. 22.

Versus Darby

The Blackhawks’ defenders took to the field ready to tame the Tigers. After giving up a couple of first downs, the Blackhawks started pushing back. They pushed the Tigers all the way back to the 20-yard line.

On third and 40 the Tigers landed a long pass and broke away for the game’s first touchdown. The Blackhawks held the Tigers out for the 2-point conversion.

The Blackhawks answered right back. Logan Robinson returned the Tigers kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown. Nate Samuli plowed through the line making the 2-point conversion good and putting the Blackhawks in the lead.

A kickoff and five plays later the Tigers were back on top.

The Blackhawks had a chance to tie it back up but a 65-yard touchdown run by Samuli got called back for an illegal hit. They worked their way down to the 15-yard line before coming up short on a fourth down.

The Tigers took advantage of it and put in one more touchdown before the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter Logan Maughan scored a touchdown for the Blackhawks putting them just one goal behind the Tigers. It would be the last time the Blackhawks would put points on the board.

The Tigers put in two more touchdowns before the end of the half and another pair in the final quarter. Final score was 14-44.

Versus Troy

In what was supposed to be the Blackhawks’ second game of the season before being postponed due to the Rice Ridge Fire, no smoke or fire could stop the Blackhawks from the 50-14 victory over the Trojans.

Junior Logan Robinson pulls in a pass from Hunter Sokoloski. The play netted 27 yards and a touchdown against Troy.

Nate Samuli was the first to strike for the Blackhawks running in a 15-yard touchdown. Hunter Sokoloski followed running in the two-point conversion.

It wouldn’t be the last time either found the end zone. Samuli scored a touchdown on a 47-yard run in the second quarter and scored on the two-point conversion. Sokoloski ran in two more conversions and had a touchdown in the third quarter.

Logan Robinson had a great game, scoring three touchdowns. One on a 45-yard run and the other two off passes from Sokoloski for 27 yards, and Avery Smith for 16 yards.

Chance Johnson also scored for the Blackhawks on a pass from Samuli for 26 yards.

The Blackhawks held the Trojans to just one touchdown in the first quarter and one in the final quarter.

The Blackhawks next game is on the road in Superior Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.
