Week 9 of the high school football season had more six-man football action for me. I headed out to Blackwell for yet another Robert Lee football game. I think this is the third time I've photographed a Robert Lee game this season. Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty rough night for the Steers as they played the Blackwell Hornets. Injuries and a lack of offensive gusto held them back and the game eventually ended with Blackwell on top 84-56.
Fortunately, the school that Robert Lee was supposed to play the following week, Lohn High School, had to forfeit their varsity season because they didn't have enough players to continue. Such are the perils of playing six-man football. That meant that Robert Lee starters would get two weeks to rest and prepare for the first round of the playoffs.
