Medina’s win-big or lose-big season continued when the Bobcats visited the Leakey Morton Indians on Friday, Oct. 16.
Medina Head Football Coach Kurt Nichols, in recapping the game, said, “The score was not indicative of the game played against Leakey. We scored first with a 45-yard run from Nate Aguilar and missed the extra point kick, which made it 6-0.
“Leakey scored next and missed the extra point also. So the game in the first quarter was 6-6. (Leakey’s) Hunter Williams then scored several times, and at the half it was 32-6.”
Nichols said Medina played hard and competed against Leakey, who he feels is probably one of the best teams in the state featuring Williams, who may be the MVP of 6- man football this year in Texas.
“In two years, I have never gone further than two quarters against Leakey, and this year we went into the 4th quarter with them. I was proud of how hard we played and competed.
“We are open this week, and next week play McDade at home for our homecoming on Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. We are 1-1 in district play,” the coach said.
