Blair Buccaneers Top Kiski 9-6 in Season Opener

Behind the unrelenting defensive pressure of Nolan Neves, the Blair Buccaneers opened their season with a 9-6 victory against the Kiski School of Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, on their home turf Friday.

Neves sacked Kiski quarterbacks more than six times. When he was bringing down passers, his pressure resulted in several miscues, including an errant throw that Blair’s Kaleb Nelson pulled out of the air.

Friday’s non-conference game sets up a three-game road trip for the Bucs against their Pennsylvania rivals.

They faced William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, Germantown Academy in Fort Washington on Sept. 24th and Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square on Sept. 30th.

The next home game was Oct. 8th, when the Buccaneers square off against the Hun School of Princeton.
