Cats top Parker, 42-21

Michael Boone on the move.Coaches will tell you one thing quickly – it’s put up or shut up time.

Before last Friday’s Homecoming game versus the Terry Parker Braves, the Wildcats were looking at three consecutive district games to decide if they would reach the playoffs for the first time under Coach Ryan Sulkowski’s reign.

They put their foot forward the evening of October 19 with an emphatic 42-21 win over the Braves. Ahead they face two teams that are tied with BCHS for the district lead, Forrest and last year’s champs, Bishop Kenny.

It’s easy to get distracted by the hoopla associated with Homecoming. There are dress up days at school, the parade and voting for the queen. It can be difficult to put your whole focus on football.

But that’s what coaches are for — to motivate and encourage and narrow their players’ focus on the game ahead.

For the first 20 minutes it looked as if all the scattered Homecoming energy might have gotten to the Cats. Parker scored first on a 6-yard run to take a 7-0 lead.

The Wildcats moved the ball well, but Parker came to play, and after scoring first and holding BCHS scoreless in the first period, one sensed the visitors thought they could spoil the Homecoming party.
