Goessel?The Bluebirds crushed Fairfield 54-8, but Friday?s game with looked to be a battle of defenses for the first five minutes. Goessel had the opening possession and turned the ball over to Fairfield on fourth down.

Two plays later, the Fairfield quarterback picked up a high snap and tossed the ball downfield for a touchdown.

Goessel then scored 54 straight points, as the defense stiffened and a mixture of passing and running plays helped the Bluebirds to their third lopsided win of the season.

Goessel (3-0) will have a district game at home on Friday with Claflin. ?Delbert Peters
