Grand Saline — After a 40-minute lightning delay, the Kerens Bobcats scored twenty second quarter points to spoil the Grand Saline Indians homecoming game Friday night by a final score of 36-15.

In a game plaqued with 10 turnovers and over 100-yards of penalties from both teams,    it was the Keren's defense stepping up big by taking away three Grand Saline Indian fumbles and scoring on two. The Bobcat defense also limited Grand Saline to just 61 total yards of offense in the second half.and 4 first downs. Kerens was led on Defense by Aaron Foxworth, Daedion Tolliver, Samuel Williams and Brandon Brumbelow.

Kerens amassed 251 yards of rushing along with 104-yards passing. Kerens' QB, Nate Betts accounted for 201-yards for the Bobcats. Betts wasn't alone, as he received help scoring from three different Bobcats Friday night. Both Jeremy Gould and Brett Anderson had touchdown catches for the Bobcat's. Zach Duncan and Betts scored on the ground as well for the Bobcats with Betts hitting pay-dirt twice.

With the win, the Bobcats improved their season record to 2-2 on the season. The Bobcats are idle next Friday night.
