DARLINGTON - Football fans who love a battle in the trenches and powerful running games will want to get a ticket for Darlington's Level 2 playoff game Saturday against Pardeeville at Martens Field.Pardeeville (9-1), the Large Trailways Conference champion, has won nine straight games since a 10-6 season-opening loss to Waterloo. The Pardeeville offensive line averages 240 pounds and serves as road graders for the rushing attack. Pardeeville has two running backs who have rushed for more than 1,000 yards this season.There's no secret what the Bulldogs want to do."They have good size everywhere," Darlington coach Scott Zywicki said. "They have 240-pound linemen opening some gigantic holes for the running back. It's been tough for teams because they haven't had the size to stop them."
