Down 13-12 at halftime, there was no mystery to the Bobcats football team’s game plan out of the intermission.
The Bobcats needed to change the momentum.
The Bobcats found that agent of change when Bowling Green High School senior Kyle Horner caught the opening kick and rumbled down the field for a 98-yard kick return.
The kick return set the Bobcats up on their own two-yard line and the team converted on the good field position with a two-yard run from Kaleo Dade for the go-ahead touchdown.
“That just made everybody go from zero to 100,” Matt McDannold said. McDannold, a junior at BGHS plays defensive back for the Bobcats. “It was just really nice to see.”
With the team’s spirits now lifted, the Bobcat defense returned to the field with a renewed sense of purpose as they now had a lead to protect.

Bowling Green’s Kameron Worley breaks free from his Wright City defender to score a touchdown for the Bobcats in the second-half. Despite trailing at the halftime break, the Bobcats would rally in the second half to win their third Eastern Missouri Conference game of the season.
