BLANCHESTER — A season on the brink turned in to a season to remember for the Blanchester football team.
The Wildcats are one of 224 schools in Ohio playing in the post-season this week. They’ll face No. 1 seed Cincinnati Taft 7 p.m. Saturday at Stargel Stadium in a Division V Region 20 quarterfinal contest.
At the beginning of the 2019 season, that idea appeared improbable.
After just five games, the notion of a Week 11 game seemed unlikely.
No, make that impossible.
“After that fourth loss, it felt like our senior season was over,” BHS senior captain Christian Stubbs said. “That Saturday morning watching film … we try to learn from our mistakes but it was the same thing (mistake) over and over.”
Goshen had just overpowered Blanchester 37-0. That came on the heels of a 38-3 defeat to Clinton-Massie and a 43-13 loss to Waynesville. BHS opened the season with a 26-0 loss to Washington.
