Bobcats breeze past Indians

Posted on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Although the Bobcats let a few sneaky Indians pass by for Van-Far touchdowns Friday, they had no qualms with beating the black and gold team by a landslide.

“The guys did well bouncing back after a tough loss last week,” offered Bobcat head coach Jeff Gschwender. “There are still some things that need to be fixed before districts starts.”

Back from the injured reserved list, junior Adam Holt bounced right back into gear with 12 carries for a total of 113 rushing yards, and two touchdowns.

Always a crowd favorite, Malik McPike, the top Bobcat in rushing yards and touchdowns, brought in the first BG touchdown with more than 10 minutes left in the first quarter. Van-Far responded with two touchdowns, each with unsuccessful two-point conversions.

Jake Niemeyer ran in his only touchdown of the game in second and goal. Corey Brown followed with the extra point, making the score 14-12. Quick to follow suit, with 10:15 left in the second, McPike ran in his second touchdown, which was also covered by a Brown point. The Indians replied with their last touchdown of the game.

Before the half, the Bobcats landed another touchdown and field goal.
