Hennessey’s playoff chances - at the very least - hit a speed bump on Friday.
The Eagles were shutout offensively in a 21-2 loss at previously winless Blackwell.
The Maroons weren’t spectacular, but did just enough offensively to pull away from the Eagles.
Kruz Goff had 82 yards on 22 carries and three of those went for touchdowns.
He scored on a 26-yard scamper in the second quarter to give his team a 7-2 lead.
With the game still in the balance, he added a pair of 3-yard scoring runs in the fourth.
Overall, Blackwell ran for 160 yards while Kevin Rios threw for 42.
Hennessey actually countered with more yards.
Sebastian Gonzalez was 12 of 23 passing for 147 yards, but Hennessey’s ground game only mustered 2.8 yards per carry.
Nykolaus Snyder led the team with 12 carries for 55 yards.
Keigen Crites didn’t run the ball as he played tight end as the Eagles deal with a multitude of injuries.
However, Crites did lead the team with nine total tackles, including three for a loss.
Juan Castanon and Brandon Mendoza had eight tackles apiece.
The defeat dropped the Eagles to 1-2 in District 2A-1 and 3-3 overall.
The Maroons are now 1-4 and 1-2, but control their own playoff destiny.
Hennessey travels to winless Chisholm this Thursday and hosts Alva (2-4, 1-2) on Oct. 22.
