Zachary came into last Friday’s playoff game as slight underdogs, and part of that was because of the reinstatement of Hahnville quarterback Andrew Robison after week 9. It was no doubt that Hahnville wasn’t your typical 22 seed & many thought the reigning 5A state champs could be on upset alert.
Zachary seem to come out with a chip on their shoulder wanting prove that they are destined to make another run at the dome no matter who stands in their way. The Broncos defense definitely set the tone all game holding Hahnville’s potent offense to 0 points until 8:35 left in the 4th quarter. The physicality by the Broncos front seven led by Caleb Jackson & Wes Brady gave quarterback Andrew Robison all game. The Broncos defense picked off Robison three times & held him to just 155 yards passing. Zachary cornerback Sean Burrell was big time accounting for two of the interceptions with one of them going back for a pick six.
Zachary offense was just as impressive as the defense accumulating over 400 yards of total offense. The Broncos running back R.J Allen ran wild all night rushing for a 146 yards & 4 touchdowns. The senior receiver Chandler Whitfield made a ton of explosive plays all night finishing the game with 205 yards receiving & a touchdown.
I think it’s to say the Broncos look poised to make another trip to the dome this year & defend their title. The road gets tougher this Friday though as they travel to Acadiana to get a chance to advance to the semifinals.
