The season opener game for the Bobcats ended with a defeat by the Fannin Rebels on Friday night. The final score: 42-0. The Rebels dominated on both sides of the ball offensively and defensively. The player that stood out most, #15 Cody Jacobs, was a huge part in their victory. The Bobcats fought hard, but gave up several big gains and ended every drive with a punt.
The Bobcats had over thirty five yards lost by penalties and in one play the Bobcats even received a safety by the Rebels defense. The Bobcats defense struggled in closing the gap up the middle which was the strongest points for the run game. While the Bobcat coaches and players were very frustrated with how the game was going, they never gave up and the players definitely left everything they had on the field that night.
This Friday, the Bobcats will host the Union county Panthers at Huff Mosely Stadium at 7:30, and Bobcat fans will be there supporting the team, and hoping they can make a comeback. GO CATS! No stats from Friday night’s game are available at the time.
