While most football teams would prefer to have a lead large enough to play the J-V unit in the second half to get them valuable experience…it likely held much more importance for Melcher-Dallas on Friday when the Saints rolled up 52 of their 58 points in the first half of their 58-to-six win over Seymour. Coach Ryan Conrad says the game got out of hand so early that he started playing his J-V guys in the second quarter after Melcher-Dallas scored 46 points in the first 12 minutes of the game. Conrad adds that helps because he was able to rest his starters for a quick turnaround game with Lenox in the first round of the Eight-Man playoffs this Wednesday. The Saints will host the Tigers on Wednesday…this will be the first time that Melcher-Dallas has ever hosted a football playoff game in school history.
