Weatherwise, it was a great evening for football as the Antlers Bearcats traveled to Liberty to square off against the Tigers on Thursday, October 16. The overflow crowd of Bearcat fans didn't seem to mind the long drive as they prepared to watch their team play for their third district win.
Fired up and ready to go, the Antlers Bearcats were at Pocola Friday, October 3, for their second district game of the year. Coming off a disappointing loss to Panama, the team was ready to prove their mettle. Pocola was celebrating their homecoming and the game ball was delivered via helicopter.
In their first district game of the season, the Bearcats played host to the Panama Razorbacks, September 26. Panama dominated the first quarter, making 6 first downs and scoring with 2:14 left. They continued to control the ball in the second quarter, with another 6 first downs, scoring again at the 4:49 mark. With the 2point conversion good, the game stood at 0 to 14, Razorbacks when the halftime buzzer rang.
The Antlers Bearcats Varsity Football team prepares to take the field to do battle in a test of strength, force, determination, skill and teamwork against their opponents.
The foundation for success continues to build for the Bearcats as head coach Kenny Speer enters his second season with the Bearcats. Prior to Speerâs arrival, Antlers had won only 1 game in three seasons.
Six starters return surrounded by young underclassmen to provide Antlers with play making abilities that will be more run-oriented than last season.
On Thursday the LadyCats had a rough start in the tournament losing to
Rattan moving them to the loser's bracket. They came back strong in their
next 2 games that afternoon winning back to back against Soper and Valliant
II. The ladies returned on Friday defeating Wright City to move back up
into the winner's bracket.
