The Aledo Bearcats dominated every aspect of their game against Cleburne last night in Mansfield; scoring on the ground, through the air and on defense, and defeating the Yellowjackets 45-7. The Bearcat offense was impressive last evening, the line did a big job controlling the line of scrimmage, opening up big holes for the running game. On defense the ‘Cats picked off 4 Yellowjacket passes, including one for a touchdown, and gave up almost nothing on the ground. On special teams Aledo, blocked a punt, had some big returns and pinned Cleburne deep on many kickoffs.
Quarterback Pate Davis played an outstanding game, throwing very well, but also doing a great job with his feet.
We’ll find out next week when Aledo matches up against top ranked Denton Guyer, but I wonder if the Bearcats have been overlooked a bit. Everybody seems quick to attribute so much of their past success to Jonathon Gray that some might not have noticed how good this team is. They are very solid everywhere and don’t make many mistakes. I haven’t seen Guyer and it’s hard to say that the Bearcats aren’t being given their due respect, but I wonder if some are too ready to see them go down.
