Goodrich Field was transformed into Dave Brock Field for the annual Pumpkin Bowl football game, but Blaine walked away with a 21-9 win over Anoka, Oct. 16.
Blaine won its third straight game and posted a season-high points total in a 42-20 win at Centennial Oct. 11. The Bengals (5-2) have things going the right direction after back-to-back losses to good Osseo and Maple Grove programs in weeks three and four.
Blaine (4-2) overcame five turnovers and quarterback Alex Copa ran for 235 yards and two touchdowns including a four-yard run in overtime as the Bengals topped Champlin Park 21-14 Oct. 4.
Blaine put two losses behind them while spoiling Coon Rapids’ homecoming game 41-14, Sept. 27. Cardinals Stadium was hoping with a rabid student section proud to share their Cardinal Nation pride throughout the deceptively one-side score.
Through the first quarter of play Blaine appeared to have its Northwest Suburban Conference game against Osseo (3-0) under control, thanks to a 23-yard touchdown run by quarterback Alex Copa followed by a 29-yard field goal from Grant Boege.
A big second quarter helped turn the tide for Blaine in a 31-21 win at Robbinsdale Armstrong Sept. 7.
Blaine (1-0) held on to win its season opener against Edina (1-1) 21-19 at Bengals Stadium Aug. 29. The meeting was a rematch of a 30-27 Section 5AAAAAA-6AAAAAA contest last season won by Edina at its artificial turf stadium.
