The Summers County Bobcats were defeated by the Independence Patriots 36-14 Friday night in Coal City, as the well known powerful running game of the Patriots helped do in the Bobcats in the rain in Coal City.
Summers County moved the ball well all night , gaining into Indy territory on several occasions, but just could not take full advantage of their chances.
Also not helping Summers on this night was Independence’s ground game lead by Noah Adams who scored five touchdowns, four on the ground and one on a interception return for a touchdown.
The Bobcats now (4-2) still are in good shape for a playoff spot, but must play better in the final four regular season contests of 2016, all of which are winnable if the Bobcats are on their game.
In the loss Friday night Nathan Grimmett did throw for 201 yards as C.J. Shrewsbury and Tucker Lilly scored for Summers on the night. Grimmett was also the leading rusher with 47 yards on the ground.
The Bobcats travel to Meadow Bridge next Friday to tangle with the rival Wildcats (1-6).
