The young and still learning Medina Bobcats are going to the school of hard knocks in the challenging 2019 season.
And as Medina Head Football Coach Kurt Nichols keeps saying, “Our biggest adversary is ourselves and our mistakes.”
That was the case in the Bobcats 66-19 loss to Blum at the neutral site of Cherokee on Friday, Oct. 4.
“We played better (scoring in three of the quarters), however we had seven fumbles and two interceptions,” Coach Nichols said. “We also had a 71-yard interception returned for a touchdown by Wyatt Boatman.”
But the coach said, “turnovers were our demise” in a game that saw Medina fall behind by 21 points in the first half largely because of turnovers.
Boatman and Nate Aguilar scored for the Bobcats in the lopsided game.
The Medina offense had total rushing of 214 yards, compared to 22 yards rushing against Heritage Christian last week.
Individual rushing for the Bobcats was: Aguilar-seven carries for 120 yards; Dakota Nelson- eight carries for 50 yards; Boatman - 10 carries for 43 yards; Wyatt Martin- one carry for 4 yards.
The Medina defense made two interceptions and recovered two fumbles as well.
The Bobcats travel to Marble Falls to face Richard Springs on Friday, Oct. 11.
