Beulah Bobcats (2-0) can add another win to their record after Friday night’s two quarter game against the Ellwood Christian Eagles. Bobcat Stadium was packed with screaming fans ready to cheer on their team. The game started with the Eagles having possession of the ball, but an interception made by junior cornerback DaShawn Jones boosted the team’s confidence.
A huge team effort was shown on the field Friday night by the Bobcats. The offense one fumble and an interception, which resulted in a 36-0 win. The game was called after the second quarter due to weather.
Sophomore running back, Quay Moreland lead rushing with 2-85 yards and a touchdown.

The student section would toss confetti in the air and the cheerleaders would jump for joy with smiles on their faces each time the Bobcats scored.
“We did what we were supposed to in the first half. I’m really pleased with our starting guys,” said Head Coach, Cody Flournoy.
