Despite the drizzle that continued throughout the entire game, the Bluebirds managed to defeat the Boone County Rebels in an almost shutout game of 55-14.

 

The Birds started out strong, the first touchdown occurring before the clock even hit the three-minute mark, and the team went on to score four more touchdowns, ending the first half with a score of 48-0. It was during the second half, the Rebels’ scored their only touchdowns of the game.

 

Before the game started, the HHS Student Council recognized the parents of all senior members of football, cheer, band, dance, and film. The seniors, some even wearing plastic crowns, accompanied their parent(s) across the field while Athletic Director, Kevin Nieporte, announced the parents’ name, their child, and what activity the student is involved in. The Council particularly emphasized how important the parents are to the success of both the students and the programs they participate in.

 

Although the Ozone was scarce due to the forecast, those bracing the cold were dressed head to toe in black. Majority wore a Turn Out The Lights shirt, sold by the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) in order to raise money for the Sepsis Alliance Awareness.

 

This is the third week of themed t-shirts; the previous weeks’ white-out shirts supported the Ozone while the pink-out shirts for the Covington Catholic game raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness Research.

 

Overall, Principal Matt Bertasso could not have been happier with the Birds ended their regular season.  

 

“It’s always nice to have a running clock while playing as well as we did,” Bertasso explained.

 

Nieporte heavily emphasized his excitement for the beginning of the playoffs for next week.

 

Nieporte stated, “I’m looking forward to next week. I really can’t wait to meet up with Cov Cath again as we’ll have another shot to beat them.”

This Friday, November 2nd at 7:30 P.M., the Birds will face off at home against the Madison Southern Eagles in the first round of the playoffs.
