  • In spite of the 34-18 loss to Newcastle last Friday night the Bobcats are going into the 2A football playoffs seeded fourth in the eastern division. “We could have done better,” coach Rob Anderson said, “but the stats aren’t as bad as we thought.” On the offensive side, the Cats had a total of 355 yards, 327 of those rushing. Senior Choc Maddock had a breakout game rushing for 107 yards, followed by fellow senior Ryan Bradshaw with 86 yards and junior Cody Bjorhus with 81 yards rushing. The defense had a good outing too, with defensive points coming from seven of the Bobcat’s defensive line. Bradshaw brought down 26 defensive points with freshman Noah Schwalbe pulling in 17. Senior Logan Kay had 16 points and junior Eric Herold had 12. Senior Tyler Cornwell brought in 11 points, as did Bjorhus, with senior Kyle Sheperd getting 10 points.
    “We had a lot of kids doing good things,” Anderson said, “the scoreboard just didn’t show it that way. It’s a moral win.”
