2010 Football: Dogs eliminated from playoff picture after 43-6 loss to Panthers

The high school district playoff picture is usually a jumbled mess when the final week of the regular season rolls around. Not so this year.

Two things happened last Friday night to bring the Class 1, District 14 playoff standings into clear focus. South Harrison defeated Braymer, 17-7, to give the Bulldogs a district title and their second straight playoff berth. Polo’s 43-6 win over Gallatin eliminated Gallatin from the race for the district’s #2 playoff spot.

Polo travels to Braymer on Thursday for a head-to-head clash for the district’s runnerup spot and playoff berth that goes with it. Both teams lost to South Harrison and both defeated Gallatin; thus the battle for second place in the district. The Panthers are looking for their first win over the Bobcats since 2007.

South Harrison needed a last-minute, 99-yard scoring drive to beat Polo, 7-0, in the opening week of district action. With the score knotted at 0-0, Polo failed to score on four plays from the Bulldog one-yard line.

Polo took time to get its offense in gear last Friday after managing only a 6-0 lead after the end of the first quarter, and 14-0 advantage at the half. The Panthers put the game out of reach with a 29-6 scoring advantage in the second half.

Gallatin’s lone touchdown came in the third quarter on a Chad Ness four-yard run. The two-point conversion failed.

South Harrison brings a potent passing attack into Thursday’s regular season finale at Gallatin. Freshman quarterback Dylan Heitz has thrown for more than 100 yards in each of the two previous district contests. Favorite receivers are junior Cole Osborne and senior Billy Wendt. South Harrison’s ground attack is led by senior Tyler Pickren.
