Bobcats to tangle with struggling Bulldogs

BEAUMONT — The Beaumont Kelly Bulldogs might be the team Orangefield needs to face as the Bobcats look to get back on track as they head to Beaumont Friday night.

After picking up two impressive wins over East Chambers and Jasper to start the campaign for coach Josh Smalley, the Bobcats (2-1) ran into Class 2A state-ranked No. 2 Newton last week and fell to the Eagles (3-0) 36-0.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs (0-2) fell to Bridge City 31-7 after opening their season with a 27-2 loss to West Sabine.

The Bobcats are churning out 320.7 yards a game, including almost 305 yards a game on the ground alone.

Through three weeks of action, Orangefield senior tailback Carl Wiley is leading all District 21-3A rushers with 505 yards on 90 carries. He grinded out 126 tough yards on 31 carries against Newton.

Bobcat quarterback Carl Wiley has rushed for 141 yards. Running back Colby Choate has 129 yards on the ground when he isn’t piling up tackles at linebacker.

The Bobcat defense is now allowing 256.3 yards a game after Newton gained 397 last week, 384 of it coming via the ground.

Orangefield will face a Kelly offense that struggled in its first couple weeks.

The Bulldogs did manage 232 total yards against the Cardinals last week, including 166 on the ground. Quarterback Allonte Wingate led the way with 54 yards on 10 carries while Sean Bebeau had 53 yards on 13 totes. Wingate completed 8-of-16 passes for 66 yards with Bebeau hauling in two of them for 27 yards.

The Kelly defense allowed Bridge City 271 yards of total offense.

The Bobcats ran over the Bulldogs 47-19 in Orangefield last season, giving Smalley his first career victory as a head coach.

The Bobcats had 393 total yards as Carl Wiley ran for 138 yards and quarterback Eric Truncale had 118 more on the ground. Kelly finished with 278 yards as quarterback Will Darling passed for 222 yards.

The Bobcats will jump into District 21-3A play next week when they visit the Silsbee Tigers.
