Dixie Shuts Out Simon Kenton, Advances to State Semifinals
Jason Finnell - The River City News
The last time the Colonels made the regional finals, it was 2004; the state semi-finals, 1982, with the likes of future Buffalo Bill Mark Pike. Head Coach Dave Brossart and his team would gladly add another chapter to the storybook of Dixie Heights football, one that has yet to be written.

“If we believe in each other, we can beat anybody,” he told his team. “You left points on the field early. You only had three, but we should’ve had 10 or 14,” Brossart said.

Despite the final score, Simon Kenton threw a wrench into Dixie’s offense early on, taking away senior quarterback Drew Moore’s ability to run. “They tested us because they were damn good. But that makes us better,” he added.

Alluding to Brossart’s point, the Colonels’ offense missed key opportunities early. After solid runs from senior running back Luke Zajac and a 35-yard scramble by Moore, Dixie’s momentum stalled deep in Simon Kenton territory.

Down to the Pioneers’ eight, Moore fumbled the snap on third down, taking a four-yard loss and falling on the ball. Dixie then called timeout. Out of the timeout, the Colonels had to immediately burn their second one due to miscommunications on the play call.
