Cardinals Show Up for Big Game


Myles Mitchusson td catch

The media was gathered in Gunter Friday night.  The matchup between the Pottsboro Cardinals and the Gunter Tigers was the Dave Campbell’s game of the week, Fox Sport Southwest had it as their spotlight game.  Even a Maxpreps photographer showed up to record the event.  When it was all over the Cardinals showed they are the team that can do some damage this year, Gunter might be a year away.  Pottsboro won the showdown 42-0, getting their 2nd straight shutout of 2015 and improving to 2-0.  It was 14-0 Cards at intermission thanks to a td run by Sr. Zane Pritchett and a td pass to Myles Mitchusson.


In the 2nd half the Cards did what good teams do, took advantage of Gunter mistakes.  Three turnovers led to 3 quick scores and Pottsboro coasted to the victory.  The last time the Tigers lost at home was in 2010 to Godley, the loss stopped their 25 game home winning streak.  Pottsboro’s “D” hasn’t allowed a point, this is the first time since 1976 that the Cardinals have started the season with 2 consecutive shutouts.  Zane Pritchett ended the game with 2 rushing td’s and 3 passing td’s, on the season the
