The Medina football team has been in a number of lopsided games this season, but the last one was different.
The Bobcats were on the winning side.
The young team and its first year coach Kurt Nichols were 1-6 going into the road game with Prairie Lea, and had been on the wrong side of scores like 66-19, 70-24, and 52-0.
The team’s only win had been against Winston, a 70-24 victory for Medina.
The 59-12 victory against the Prairie Lea Indians on the road Friday, Oct. 25, was a welcome change as the Bobcats head into their homecoming game against Nueces Canyon Friday, Nov. 1.
Coach Nichols reflected on the second win of the year.
“It was a well-rounded game in all phases of the game. We ran the ball well and caught the ball well. We have a very tough game against our district opponent Nueces Canyon this next week,” the Bobcat coach said. “It is our homecoming, and I expect it to be a tough battle against a very good team.”
Nate Aguilar led the scoring for Medina with three TDs rushing, followed by single touchdowns for Wyatt Boatman, Jess Stumpf, and Wyatt Martin.
Gavin Walters and Jacob Hinds each scored on pass plays for the Bobcats.
Box Score 1st Quarter: 12-0; 2nd Quarter: 26-6; 3rd Quarter: 53-12; 4th Quarter: 59-12; Game called with 7:55 left.
