T-Birds can't keep pace with Bobcats

T-Birds can't keep pace with Bobcats

September 22nd, 2013 in News

The North Callaway Thunderbirds were trapped in the constant mode of chasing the Bowling Green Bobcats, never quite catching them.

North Callaway spotted Bowling Green a 14-0 lead in Friday night's Eastern Missouri Conference opener, but made it a game at halftime by closing within nine points. The Thunderbirds, though, became stuck in a back-and-forth exchange, swapping scores with the Bobcats in the second half and eventually dropped a 49-34 outcome.

Despite prolific efforts from both junior quarterback Cole Branson and senior split end Miguel Hudson, North Callaway suffered its second straight loss in tumbling to 1-3 on the season. Junior quarterback Jacob Niemeyer answered with a game-high 191 yards rushing and three touchdowns - also throwing for a score - as Bowling Green remained unbeaten at 4-0.
