 East Buchanan 30

 Bellevue 6

 At Bellevue:

  The Buccaneers came ready to play and flipped the final score from the previous match-up against Bellevue, using a solid ground game and  defense to post a 30-6 first-round state playoff victory.  The loss ends a Comet season messed up by the coronavirus that  cost the team two games that were theirs to win.

 The first quarter was all about defense. Neither team  reached the end zone in a 0-0 score.

 The Buccaneers finally put together a drive that resulted in a short rushing score. The two point run was good for a 8-0 lead at halftime.

 East Buchanan used  defense and rushing to score twice in the third quarter on seven yard and six yard runs. Both rushing extra points were good for a 24-0 lead with 5:20 left in the third quarter.

 Bellevue used a fumble by the Buccaneers to get on the scoreboard. Jacob Waller returned it 20 yards for a score, but the try after failed for a 24-6 Buc lead with 1:21 left in the third quarter.

 The Buccaneer defense kept strong, and the offense pushed a late score to end it 30-6.

 The Comet season ends at 3-3 and the team graduates seven senior players next spring: Max Jackson Ty Kloser, Dustyn Talbot, Austin Hager, Nick Deppe, Ryder Kilburg and Austin Brandes.  The Comets return a solid nucleus of underclassmen  to build their 2021 team around.
