Last Monday, Oct. 19 at Corning, Osceola Jr. High beat our Jr. Bobcats in two overtimes; 20 to 14. It was a make-up game. We had just won an overtime game the week before and had several opportunities to win the game but could just not make a play when we needed it. Then last Thursday, our Jr. Bobcats traveled to Palestine-Wheatley and came away with a close victory; 22 to 16. We close out our season with Harrisburg on Thursday night, Oct. 29 at Harrisburg.

Our Senior Bobcats traveled to Osceola (two-time runner up state champions; 18-19) and were defeated 48 to 12. Jordan Grubb caught a forty-yard strike from Jake Gutierrez for our first score. Later in the fourth quarter, Jake scored from ten yards out on a dive play. We gave up three major turnovers and our kids know they can not win many games with that many turnovers. We go back to work Monday getting ready for Manila on Friday, October 2 - Homecoming. We are 2-2 and will have everybody back (injuries) and 100 percent this week. We appreciate our fans, administrators, and all those that support our kids. Go Bobcats!
