SSHS running back Ben Krantz sweeps around the end for a long gainer.

Plains-Hot Springs capitalized on turnovers in the fourth period to down the Blackhawks 20-12 in the season opener here Saturday.

The game was closer than the final score indicated, though, and the Blackhawks led 12-8 throughout most of the second half, scoring twice after Plains held a 8-0 halftime lead.

Senior Ben Kranz scored first on a 35-yard run and also scored the second Hawk touchdown on a 10-yard run.

Plains went ahead by 14-8 with 5 minutes left, and then capitalized on a Blackhawk turnover and added the final touchdown to make it 20-12.

The Blackhawks will take on Saint Ignatius in another home game this Saturday. Game time is 12 noon, according to the schedule.
