Blackcats need to bounce back against Fulshear


After facing the offensive buzz saw that is Needville last Friday, Bay City will return home this Friday to take on Fulshear in its annual homecoming contest.

Against Needville, Bay City allowed the Bluejays to gain 702 total offensive yards but the Blackcats did their best to match their output as Bay City amassed 426 total offensive yards as well. In the end, Needville just closed out drive and had enough big plays to put away the Blackcats and claim the district win.

Now, Bay City will set its sights on Fulshear and the Chargers, who are playing their first year at the varsity level of football. 

Fulshear enters the contest 0-2 in the District 13-4A standings and has already dropped district contests to Sealy and El Campo in the first two weeks of play. 

The Chargers are led by former Fort Bend Dulles Head Football Coach Oschlor Flemming in this first season at the varsity level. Last year, Fulshear’s varsity squad competed at the junior varsity level in preparation for this first season at varsity.

Fulshear is led by quarterback Keaton Huebner, who runs the ball hard for the Chargers. 

Because the team lacks any seniors on its squad, Fulshear doesn’t have the leadership needed to compete this year at the district level but the Chargers have some talent across its offensive and defensive front lines.

Leading the way is offensive tackles Olaeke Asenuga and Andrew Jensen and defensive tackle Ethan Hamby. 

For Bay City, this game will be a chance to get back into the win column in district action. The Blackcats will be looking to continue their strong offensive play and jump out on the Chargers early and take the game away from them in the first half of play.

Led by quarterback Dylan Davidson, Bay City is a threat to score every time its touches the ball but inconsistency has hurt the Blackcats at times this year. With four games left in the district season, the Blackcats need to get their offensive issues worked out and get ready for a postseason ride that lies ahead for this talented squad.
