Frankfort Panthers Pummel the Mustangs of Brossart
11/7/2010 - by Jake Ollier
Fans packed the stands of Frankfort High School in the State Capitol Friday night for the 7:30 kickoff between the Frankfort High School Panthers and the Bishop Brossart Mustangs. The Mustangs (6-4) traveled 80 minutes for the first round of the 2010 Kentucky High School Playoffs, while the Panthers (7-3) received home field advantage and came out of their backyards for the first round gridiron match up. Despite it only being the Mustangs’ second playoff game in school history, they were confident of their performance throughout the week of game film and practices before the game. However, by the end of the first quarter, it was clear that the Panthers had the upper-hand.

Gridiron excitement tore through the frigid, sleeting weather that surrounded Sower Field. The Mustangs won the coin toss, but were stopped and forced to punt on their first series. The Panthers on the other hand, took the Mustang punt and scored on their first series thanks to a 28 yard run by running back, Joseph Morgan. Brossart could only provide a few first downs compared to the three touchdowns that Frankfort mounted by the end of the first quarter. The Mustangs gave away a fumble after Frankfort pinned them within their own 5-yard line. The Panthers put the ball into the end zone a total of four times, sending Coach Foley’s squad and the Panther hopeful, into the locker rooms with a 27-0 halftime tally.

Brossart started the second half with the hope of a dramatic comeback; something that they had done in week three versus Caverna High School. However, their hopes were put out of reach as Zach Mason returned the Mustangs’ second half kick 80 yards for a touchdown, bringing the score to 34-0. The Panthers tacked on two more scores before the end of the third quarter, bringing the score to 47 over a scoreless Mustang squad. A score that stayed until the final buzzer came and the handshakes ensued. “We just fell apart,” said junior, Mustang quarterback Jesse Orth. When asked about his high school football career at Bishop Brossart, senior leader, Luke Dischar said, “It was awesome. I loved playing for them.” With tears flowing, the Mustangs boarded the bus for the last time of the 2010 football season. They will hope to adjust well to the realignment next year that put them in the competitive Class 2A.

The Panthers will stay at home, hoping to have a rerun of the first round game, for next week’s match up with the Walton-Verona Bearcats. Walton-Verona will hope to keep the momentum they received in their first round 46-0 win over the Bracken County Polar Bears.
