Bobcats host Buna in vital 21-3A tilt

ORANGEFIELD — Plenty of playoff implications are on the line for both the Orangefield Bobcats and Buna Cougars Friday night when the Bobcats welcome the Cougars in District 21-3A action.

Orangefield (3-5, 2-2) had its bye week last week while the Cougars (4-5, 2-3) absorbed a 40-0 loss at the hands of West Orange-Stark.

If the Bobcats defeat Buna, then a possible showdown for a playoff spot could take place during the last week of the regular season when Orangefield visits rival Bridge City (4-4, 3-1). Buna, meanwhile, has its bye week next week.

If Buna defeats Orangefield, things could get interesting as far as tiebreakers and points go during the final week of the regular season.

Both the Bobcats and Cougars are similar in what they do offensively as far as their running games are concerned.

The Bobcats are churning out 316.5 yards a game, 306.1 of it via the ground.

Tailback Carl Wiley is getting closer to the 1,000-yard mark, with his 888 yards and eight touchdowns on 139 carries.

Bobcat quarterback Eric Truncale has darted for 590 yards and six TDs on 81 carries. Orangefield has also turned to Tyron Como (56-351-3), Dustin Verrett (33-215-1) and Colby Choate (34-186-0) to spice up their game.

The Cougars will face a Bobcat defense that is allowing 359.8 yards an outing.

The Cougars feature hard-nosed tailback Matthew Biddle, who has more than 1,100 yards on the ground. He had 63 yards on 25 tough carries in the loss to WO-S.

Fullback Dalton Ford runs hard inside the tackles and quarterback Glenn Patrick is capable of making big runs on scrambles.
