Goats playing tough, still looking for first win of the season

 

By Todd Boyd

Special to the Groesbeck Journal

 

BULLARD – An inability to hold on to the football early and a stifling Bullard defense led to a 45-12 loss by Groesbeck last Friday at Panther Stadium.

The Goats begin the season with consecutive losses after dropping their first game of the 2016 season to McGregor. The road to that elusive first victory doesn’t become any easier to navigate as Groesbeck hosts Highway 14 rival Mexia (2-0) in the 78th edition of The Battle of the River at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

The Goats first possession of the Bullard game lasted two plays with an interception coming on the first pass of the game. Bullard was able to convert that turnover into a touchdown 11 plays later. In the next Groesbeck possession, the offense showed life by converting a third down, but that drive ended with a fumble. That turnover was also converted into Panther points and a 14-0 deficit.
