For the second time in three years, the Laurel Locomotives proved to be too powerful for the Havre Blue Ponies in the Class A playoffs. On Saturday in Laurel, the Locomotives ran past the Ponies 48-13 in the first round of the 2012 playoffs. Havre got two touchdowns on connections between Dane Warp and Zach Plum, but the Laurel running game was solid all day long.
The Locomotives (9-1) advanced to the quarterfinals next Saturday, while the Ponies end the year with a 4-6 overall record.
