Bobcats improve to 8-0 and 3-0 in District with win over Knott
HINDMAN – October 18, 2019 – Brendon D. Miller – BSN
This one was decided early, as has been the norm for the Bobcats this season. Dalton Manns scored on the first Breathitt play from scrimmage from 18 yards out and the Bobcats were on their way to their 8th victory of the season.
On the night, the Bobcats had eight drives, and they scores on each of those drives. The longest Bobcat drive of the night was just four plays. Of the eight drives, three were one play drives, two were two play drives and three were four play drives. Wow. The Bobcats ended up running only 20 offensive plays on the night.
The varsity defense again threw a shut out. The only points scored by the Patriots were on a safety by the Breathitt JV offense and a score against the JV Defense on the last play of the game. The Clock began running with 7:23 to go in the 2nd quarter.

Lane Weddle was 7 for 7 on PAT’s on the night and Turner added the 8th.
The Bobcats only gave up 147 yards in the game and had four interceptions by Weddle, Ethan Gibson, Slaughter, and Ritchie. William Long should have had a fumble return for a touchdown, after stripping the Patriot ball carrier of the ball, but the return was negated by an inadvertent whistle.
This was likely a 1st round Playoff Matchup for November 8th, which will be in Jackson.
