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.

Bobcats Advance

Kort

The Bobcat football team had a impressive win Wednesday night over the North Central knights. The Bobcats scored on the first play of the game as Joe Mackin ran the kick return back for a touchdown after Trent Karr had an aggressive block right in the heart of the the knights kickoff team.

The Bobcats were quick to shut down the knights’ run game leaving them with the only option to pass against the hard hitting Bobcats. At the end of first quarter, Blue Hill lead the Knights 20-6. As the Bobcats grinded out the first and second quarter, the Bobcats held the lead to 27-14.

The second half was a good half all around for the experienced Bobcat team resulting in a 49-20 win to advance to the third round in the Nebraska D2 playoffs where they will be facing a tough Twin Loup team on Tuesday night at 6 PM.

The game begins and right out of the gate our boys in blue dominate the field! This Thursday, 26th of October the Blue Hill Bobcats’ Football Team crushed the Central Valley Cougars.

From the start you could tell the Bobcats would blow them away. They defended. They scored. They lead the lead in the first quarter with 48 – 0. Though the second quarter the speedy Cougars got past the line, we gained it right back in the last minute. Half-time scoring of 52 – 6. By now the Bobcats switched out their lineup and gave the other team a chance. The third quarter ended at 60 – 12. With our last quarter, the Cougars stopped us from making any more scores and sped theirs up, but in the end, we WON with 60 – 18. Grant Streff, Senior, states, “Our goal ever since the start of the year was to finish what we started last year, and we will see if we can.”

The Bobcat’s Football Team is owning the field and ready to face North Central, November 1st, on our home field!

Pink & Parent Night

Kosse and Kort

Tuesday night was pink out night for the Lawrence Nelson-Blue Hill volleyball game. This was to show our total support for breast cancer as it is breast cancer awareness month. Before the game started, parents night was also a big night for the two seniors. The seniors are Taylor Bonifas and Halee Kohmetscher. The reason for parents night is for all of us to honor the parents and the seniors to recognize all the hard work they have put into this sport.
