High powered Hoxie offense too much for Corning to contain

If you are a fan of big plays and gobs of scoring, Bobcat Stadium was your place to be Friday, October 5. Hoxie (3- 3) stormed into Corning and left with a 51 to 20 victory. The conference foes put up 71 points combined and over 630 yards combined on the gridiron. There is an old saying that goes, “when it rains it pours”.

That saying seems to hold weight for the 2018 Corning Senior High Bobcats Football team.

The Cats came into this game staring down what is maybe the toughest remaining schedule in all of 3A and doing that without the injured Clay Smith and departed Jake Guiterrez. Those two Bobcats were responsible for a high percentage of Corning’s offense and even contributed a fair share on the defensive side. Give Corning a ton of credit as they have showed enthusiasm and a plethora of energy since the opening kickoff of the season and it’s carried to every game thus far. The first half against Hoxie the Cats looked emotionally, physically and mentally spent and rightfully so with the way this roller coaster first half of the season has gone. Corning never gained any traction in this battle under the Friday night lights at home. Credit the Hoxie Mustangs for some of that as well
