Cardinals Keep Winning 45-28 Over North Lamar

The Pottsboro Cardinals stood up to 4A-D1 North Lamar and came away with their 3rd victory of the season 45-28.  It was a physical game on a hot night in Pottsboro as the Cardinals introduced their new QB Hunter Watson.  His 1st play was on a 4th & 1 in the first quarter and Watson promptly blasted through the Panther defense for 2 yards and a 1st down.

It was that kind of game, tough, hard-nosed, decided in the trenches and Pottsboro showed they can win that kind of game too.  North Lamar has an impressive rushing attack.  Senior RB Javon Franklin was a threat every time he touched the ball, he ended up with 167 yards and 2 td’s.  The Panthers as a team had 351 yards rushing.DSC_6323

But it was Pottsboro’s ability to convert in big situations and everyone contributed.  The score was 17-0 at halftime with Myles Mitchusson making a beautiful catch in the corner of the endzone and Hunter Watson ran one in from 10 yards out.  In the 2nd half both teams offenses dominated their were 4 possessions by each team and a total of 8 td’s.

Surprisingly the much anticipated debut of former Denison Yellowjacket QB Hunter Watson was more about his feet than his arm, Watson finished with 114 yards rushing on 19 carries 3 td’s.  The other Cardinal QB’s were outstanding as well, Soph. Heath Hunter threw 2 td passes and Carson Rein ended up had a couple of rushing td’s as well.   It was a tough, hard fought game with lots of players on both sides suffering from the heat but once again the Cardinals lived up to their motto, “We Will Win”.
