At this point in the gridiron season for Medina High School, the games have been either lopsided loses or wins.
The Bobcats got a 52-6 blowout win over Prairie Lea on the road Friday, Oct. 9, for a welcome second win. Medina’s other win of the season was a 50-12 thrashing of Rochelle on Sept. 18.
Medina Head Football Coach Kurt Nichols, in recapping the game, said, “I felt we played very consistently as a team. We played very well on defense, especially tackling.
“Jonathon Crowther played his best game of the year, with three interceptions with one for a TD. Nate Aguilar played well on both sides of the ball and rushed for two TDs and was the leading ball carrier.
Britton Wickham has been a consistent tackler all season and tackled well against Prairie Lea.”
Offensively, Aguilar had 87 yds rushing including two touchdowns and two receptions, both for TDs, T.J. De Leon had 11 yds rushing, 51 yds passing and two passing TDs, while Wickham had 26 yds rushing with two TDs.
On the defense, Crowther had three solo tackles, Aguilar two solo tackles and three assists and Wickham a solo tackle and two assists.
Ty Hill also had a solo tackle and a solo assist, while Josh Hampton and Kai Peterson each had a solo tackle, and DeLeon had three assists.
Nichols said Medina faces its best overall team of the year on Friday, Oct. 16, when the Bobcats travel to Leakey.
Medina’s junior high team hosts Leakey on Thursday, Oct. 15.
