The four game winning streak at the beginning of the season for the Bobcats is starting to change directions for them.There was no pressure on the Bobcats as they traveled to Gosnell, AR to take on the undefeated and state-ranked Pirates. However,whatever pressure that was on the Pirates' shoulders to win quickly vanished as they easily manhandled the Bobcats of Corning last Friday night in Gosnell.
It was another big night for Gosnell running back Ivan Brown who easily outran the Cats' defensive unit much like he has everyone else this year."If you ever wanted to see what the best football team in the state looks like,you just saw them." Those were the words Bobcat coach Mike Smith used at halftime to describe the Pirates to his team who trailed 42-6 at the half.
The Cats' did have success on one drive against the best team they will probably face all year.That was when Bobcat Quarterback Mitchell Hovis hooked up with split end Gary Don Sharp for what was one of the longest if not the longest passing scores of the year for Corning.Jerry Evans also plunged into the end- zone for his first score of the year on a one yard scamper to give the game it's final score of 42-14.Corning comes back home next week to take on the Colts of Rivercrest who defeated the Wildcats of Trumann by two points last week.
