Arctic Blast Vs. Central WI Panthers

Postby blast61 » Thu Jun 22, 2006 9:16 am

Game this Saturday night in Powers, MI against the Central WI Panthers.

This should be a good game. The Panthers may not have a strong record but they always seem to play tough against us.

Hopefully we get quite a few of the new fans that watched us in Norway to come out and watch us in Powers.

We can clinch the division and have at least one home playoff game with a win this week.

How come the Blast don't return to Gladstone to play. Ihear they are having trouble at Powers with the construction going on at the field. I know Gladstone was more than happy to have them and would probably take them back.

The Central WI Panthers got on the board first with a field goal midway through the 1st quarter. With 1:05 remaining in the quarter Drew Buyarski bulled over from the 3 yard line. The following point after attempt failed.
Midway through the second quarter the Panthers kicked another field goal to make the half time score 6 – 6.
With 5:07 remaining in the 3rd quarter, Shaun Anderson threw a 27 yard TD pass to Drew Buyarski. The two point conversion, a pass to Jeff Taff, made the score 14 – 6.
With five minutes remaining in the game Central WI picked up a fumble and carried it into the house. The ensuing attempt for a two point conversion failed making the score 14 – 12. The Blast took the ensuing kick off and moved to within the 25 yard line and ran the clock out.

The Arctic Blast defense was once again outstanding, limiting Central WI to two field goals on offense. The result was because of an all around sound game with the Blast’s total yardage equaling 330 yards.

The next game is a match up with the undefeated Chippewa Valley Predators at Carson Park in Eau Claire. Chippewa Valley has a home holiday game match up with Chicago on the second of July. The Blast game with the Preds promises to be a good one.

With the win over the Panthers the U P Arctic Blast is assured of at least one home game in the playoffs on the 15th of July in Powers. A win in Eau Claire would assure the team of two home playoff games. The Super Bowl is scheduled for July 29th at Carson Park.

“Those that attended the Panther game had reason to be satisfied. The Panther match ups are always good games. Shaun Anderson had a brilliant game filling in for Jake Simkins who had some personal matters to attend to on that date.” The strategy for the game was to keep the passing game a short to medium route one using rhythmic delivery.
