On Oct. 3 the Owen County Rebels came to visit the Wildcats to make up a game that had been postponed due to lightening the previous week. The Rebels came out on top 9-0.
“We had some unfortunate things happen,” Coach Bobby Jameson said. “Gavin (Jameson) and Jacob (Buckley) both got hurt and couldn’t finish the game. Jacob came out with 20 minutes to go and Gavin with about 10 minutes to go.
“Gavin got hurt 10 minutes into the second half and he tried to play through it but came out with 10 minutes to go. Jacob has a badly sprained shoulder. He also took a shot to the eye earlier in the game and had to come out for treatment because he was bleeding under his eye.”
Jameson said it was 5-0 at halftime. “They scored in bunches,” Jameson said, “We would hold them for stretches and then they scored in bunches. We played the last 10 minutes with no subs. Besides the injured players we had a couple more people out due to illness or other reasons.”
Looking ahead to district play Jameson said, “We face Carroll on Tuesday night at Owen County. I expect it to be a physical game. I expect that we will be aggressive. Carroll seems to bring out the best and worst in us. If we can keep our composure, we can play with them. I expect it will be physical and fast-paced.”
