REFUGIO - The number one ranked Refugio Bobcats broke its record for most points scored in a game by roaring past Riviera 82-6 in Jack Sportsman Bobcat Stadium.

Head coach Jason Herring said he "challenged the Cats to be a family and they came in spades."

"This game was the most complete first half since I've been here," Herring said.

The Cats are 5-0 for the season and 2-0 in district play.

Refugio will play again at home next Friday against Freer.

Finally somebody steps up to the plate and makes a statement like this! In high school football towns in Texas there is a fine line between winning, bullying, and a certain juvenile gratification called "a shut-out". Remember this fans each time you look across the field and see the still and quiet parents that are trying to keep it together. We all (sooner or later) pay for our pleasures.

Refugio coaches should be ashamed of themselves for the way they allow/teach their athletes to play. Granted, they are very talented young men and have earned each win, these coaches would do well to teach their boys a little humility. In last weeks games against Skidmore-Tynan after the game was obviously won by Refugio, with the second string of Refugio in the game, Skidmore finally made some headway. With 3 second on the clock and down by an overwhelming amount of points it seemed as though Skidmore may actually make out into the endzone. When lo and behold, what does the Refugio coach do? He sends the first string back into the game for no other reason but to ensure the shutout. Now to run the score up on another team in this fashion is simply unsportsmanlike. Just one fans honest opinion. I do wish the boys well on their trip into the playoffs. My one wish is that somewhere along the way the coaches remember what true sportsmanship is really about.
