Bowie football loses to Childress
The Bowie Jackrabbits lost their final non-district game on Friday at Childress.
The Bobcats won 41-13, doing most of their damage in the first half while taking advantage of the Jackrabbits mistakes.
Bowie knew the game was going to be tough. Childress was coming off two losses against Bushland and Holliday, but had won close games in the first two weeks against Breckenridge and Abernathy.
The first quarter saw the Bobcats jump out ahead, scoring twice on a 31-yard run from the quarterback and 16 yards out by the running back to lead 14-0.
In the second quarter, Childress finished one more drive with a short run from the running back before disaster struck the Jackrabbits. An interception and then a fumble recovery were both returned for the touchdowns in the quarter, extending the Bobcats lead to 34-0 heading into halftime.
Bowie played better in the second half, limiting Childress to only one more touchdown, a 24-yard pass in the third quarter that put the Bobcats up 41-0.
The Jackrabbits finished the rest of the game playing better, technically winning the second half thanks to a pair of explosive runs from Tucker Jones. He scored on runs of 68 and 70 yards in the fourth quarter to help Bowie make the final score 41-13.
Those long runs helped Jones lead the Jackrabbits in rushing with 158 yards. Justin Clark was second with 93 yards.
As a team Bowie finished with 325 yards rushing for the game and had more than six minutes more time of possession.
Unfortunately, three turnovers in the first half, including two that went back for touchdowns, put the Jackrabbits behind.
The defense allowed Childress’ balanced offensive attack to gain nearly 400 yards of offense, but limited the Bobcats to only one score in the second half. Also, it forced a turnover in the game when Austin Cheney intercepted a pass.
