  The Bearcats football team traveled to Valley Union last Friday to start their season. Unfortunately, the team was unable to come home with the victory.

  The Bearcats had a hard time keeping Valley Union’s offense pinned down, and by the second quarter they were already down by 16 points. Valley Union played a tough defense, not letting any of the Bearcats through, until the last quarter, when the ‘Cats put 8 points on the scoreboard.

  Although the game ended with a 8-28 score, it is only the beginning of the season.

  The Bearcats will travel to San Manuel on Friday, Aug. 27. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. This will be the Miners’ first game of the season.

  If you cannot show your support for the Bearcats in person, the game can be watched via livestream on nfhsnetwork.com.
