(NMB) The Havre Blue Ponies Football team currently sits at 3 and 2 in the Eastern “A” and is coming off last week’s shutout on the road over Custer County. Five games into the season, Ponies head coach Jake Eldridge likes the way his team is improving. “I think we’re just becoming more consistent with our execution, technique, fundamentals and scheme. The effort has always been there from day one with this group. The kids are paying really, really hard.”
Friday night the Ponies will host Dawson County at Blue Pony Stadium and coach Eldridge says they bring an athletic quarterback to town, an explosive running back that can break tackles and a offensive line that is big and experienced, so, stopping their offense will be a challenge. “They create some mismatches up front and they can run the football and the quarterback, like I said is athletic and can do a lot with his feet and with his arm. We definitely got our work cut out for us again this week to try and stop their offense.”
The Havre versus Dawson County game will kick off at 6pm Friday night inside Blue Pony Stadium.
