Medina continued looking for answers in a so-far challenging season on Friday, Sept. 27, as the Bobcats fell to Fredericksburg Heritage Christian 56-8.

The game was stopped in third quarter when the Fredericksburg team had a lead big enough to trigger the University Interscholastic League mercy rule.

The loss left Medina at 1-4 for the season.

The Eagles took advantage of Medina mistakes and scored repeatedly early in the game.

As halftime neared, Medina running back Nathaniel Aguilar crossed the goal for the Bobcat’s lone score.

Medina’s first-year Football Coach Kurt Nichols did not mince words as he gave an assessment of his young team’s performance.

“We didn’t play well defensively and offensively,” said Nichols. “They were a good team, however our biggest adversary is ourselves, and we will struggle until we play all together and quit trying to do our thing, and use the proper fundamentals and play as we are coached.”

The Bobcats totaled 22 yards rushing on 19 carries and 47 yards in passing with seven completions in 11 attempts.

Medina takes on Blum at the neutral site of Cherokee on Friday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
