Bobcats Move On

Kort

The Bobcat football team move on again. The boys had to grind it out Tuesday night in a slugfest 37-34. The Bobcats had a 14 point lead going into half-time; however, the Twin Loup Wolves came out firing on all cylinders to catch up to the Bobcats.

The fourth quarter was an exciting one for both teams. Both crowds were cheering with all their might. Both teams grinded till the very last drive when Blue Hill had the ball. The Bobcats drove down the field with John Rouse making great throws to strong, tall receivers Maccoy Menke and Trent Karr, setting up Joe Mackin for the field goal to take the lead.

That was Joe’s first field goal of the year and he nailed it right down the center. After all that and taking the lead, the Bobcats squib kicked it down the right side and had to only hold Twin Loup one last play, where senior linebacker Ethan Sharp dropped back in coverage and took the interception to close the game out.
