The Bowie High School football team remains winless through three weeks of the 2016 season.
Meanwhile, this week’s opponent – Holliday – seems to be living the charmed life. The Eagles have yet to suffer a loss.
All of the Eagles’ games have been tight – an opening-week 3-0 victory at Paradise, a 20-14 victory over Boyd and on Sept. 9 an overtime conquest over Ponder by the same score over the Yellow Jackets.
“Holliday is finding ways to win games, and they’ve beaten three of our district opponents,” said Bowie head coach Dylan Stark.
Bowie’s coming off a good performance at Henrietta – with 346 yards of offense.
“We keep getting better in the run game,” Stark said. “We had a good night with more than 300 yards rushing, and the defense limited them to two touchdowns. We just have to put it all together.”
Still, the Jackrabbits are doing things that result in lost ballgames – the team had six turnovers versus Henrietta and committed 11 penalties for 117 yards. Read more in the Sept. 14 Bowie News.
