Game Highlights, Week 4
This week was Homecoming for the Basha Bears and they were not only battling the Red Mountain Lions, but also the weather. First of all, congratulations Varsity Linebacker Mason Browning for being selected Homecoming King. As noted, storms were in the area, with lightning nearby and a strong breeze Friday night the Bears battled against the Lions, only to come up short. The Bears fell behind early again this game but attempted to rally in the 4th quarter, but ended up losing 27-21. After three straight home games and three straight losses, the Bears head back onto the road for next weeks game. The Bears are presently 1-3 on the season.
As noted earlier, weather was issue last week and that seems to be the only thing stopping the Junior Varsity Bears after three weeks of competition. On the road to play the Red Mountain Lions, last week, the JV team took a quick lead on Red Mountain and added to it as weather moved in. Dust blew in and lightning flashed across the sky as the Bears won a weather shortened game 25-0, at half. The JV Bears have started 3-0 this season and now have consecutive shutouts. These Bears will play their home opener this week.
The Freshman Red Mountain Lions were late to arrive to John Wall Stadium to play the Bears, due to transportation issues. But they were definitely ready to play some football. The Freshman Bears struggled against the Red Mountain Lions, losing 49-0. They will play their first road this week.
