Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens Dissected Friday (September 13) night’s district opening loss at Terrell, 15-13 on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coach’s Show. One thing was obvious Friday. The Wildcats were able to bottle up the Tigers’ Wing-T Offense. Coach Owens said the defense played a phenomenal game. He said the defensive line dominated things and were led by end D’Andre Peoples. Coach Owens said the inside linebackers held up while the outside linebackers did super jobs. He praised outside linebackers Aidan Walker, Kylan Wade and Cameron Hargrave. Coach Owens said the defense was aggressive and they tackled well. Safety Chase Haney also had a pass interception. For the most part the offense struggled. Still they scored a couple of touchdowns and back Caden Davis had another big night. Davis rushed for 161 yards on 21 carries. Da’Korian “Choc” Sims added 96 yards on 14 carries. However Coach Owens said the offense had trouble getting into sync with penalties constantly disrupting drives. Despite all that, Coach Owens noted that the Wildcats still had opportunities to win at the end. He said the team played with great effort. He said the offense has to make plays and finish drives and he said special teams were a negative. There were missed field goals and extra point kicks, bad or mishandled snaps and a fumble returned for a touchdown. One positive was another successful Wildcats onside kick. Now the Wildcats play Royse City at The Prim Friday night for Homecoming. The Bulldogs have opened the season 2-0 with wins over Frisco Centennial and Garland. They had a bye Friday night. Coach Owens said the plan is to turn things around Friday and get a win.
