Good evening Bearcat Nation and welcome to the
2016-2017 season home opener as your Aledo Bearcats host the Westlake Warriors
from Westlake Village, Ca. This is Jim Zimmermann and Connor with The Community
News and we are proud to bring you our 4th season of live coverage
of Bearcat football.
Last week the Bearcats had one of the most exciting
season opening games I have ever attended. Aledo went to Mustang Panther
stadium in Colleyville and faced the Colleyville Panthers.
It was an offensive back and forth, punch you in the
mouth, last one standing wins game. Aledo came in as the #1 ranked team in
Class 5A. Colleyville had dropped down from 6A to 5A and this was the first
game in their new classification.
The game stats were almost identical. The Panthers had
a total of 66 plats to Aledo’s 64. Both had 24 first downs and in the most
crucial category Aledo had 10 penalties to the Panthers 11. But Aledo had 122
yards in penalties to Colleyville’s 73.
Offensively, the teams combined for 986 yards! Aledo
had 508, 330 passing and 178 rushing. Colleyville had 270 yards passing and 208
Sure does look like the Aledo away uniforms
Aledo trailed 30-29 heading into the 4th.
Both teams moved the ball up and down the field, taking advantage of the
defensive backs playing deep and hitting the underneath short passes.
Aledo took the lead 41-36 with under two minutes left in the game,
Colleyville wasted no time getting the ball down the field to the 19-yard line
with under 20 seconds left. The Panthers lined up in shotgun and snapped the
Aledo’s defense had great penetration and forced
Colleyville’s quarterback to scramble to his left and throw off balance for
the end zone. Aledo’s Logan Childs had the play perfectly read and came from
behind the receiver and intercepted the ball and sealed the Bearcat victory.
