Despite a 42-14 loss to Ennis at Gerald Prim Stadium last Friday (October 11), Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show said his team played their tails off and played with heart. He said the Wildcats had a very emotional week after going through the trauma of a fatal vehicle accident that occurred near their school buses on the way home from Forney last week. Coach Owens said his team was juiced up and did some healing by being able to play football. He said the Wildcats are undersized and play with a chip on their shoulder. However Coach Owens said the Wildcats are playing good teams that will expose your weaknesses. He said turnovers and a missed field goal put daggers in the Wildcats. He said if some of that stuff turns out different, it makes for a different game. Coach Owens said he was proud of the way the defense played. He added the offensive line played well at times. He was especially impressed with Giovanni Pizano. He added Ryan Hammonds also had some good moments. On defense Coach Owens liked the play of inside linebacker Eleazer Brena. He was happy to see receiver Weston Fields catch his first TD pass. Youngster B Back Carson Fenton also had some catches. He said running backs Caden Davis and Da’Korian Choc Sims ran hard. Coach Owens said quarterback Kaden Wallace played an exceptional game until turnovers cropped up. He said receiver Zach Tiemeyer had a super catch. He said the Wildcats played with tremendous effort and fought until a couple of players lost their minds and were ejected. He said some stuff was not called early that allowed the game to get chippy later on. He said players have to harness their aggression. Coach Owens said Corsicana will be be refocused this week due to a wake up call loss to Royse City last Friday. He said the Wildcats are not out of things right now but he said they have to start winning games.
