There were some positives that came out of Friday night’s game against the Caldwell Hornets for Mexia.
The Blackcats out-passed their oppenent, 158 yards to 51-yards, recovered three fumbles and only lost one and had 458 total yards to the Hornets 362.
The big difference, though, was on the scoreboard. Caldwell 42, Mexia 32.
The Blackcats had a tough time defensively containing the Hornets top running back, Keyshawn Chambers, who rushed for 167 yards and scored five touchdowns, however, the Mexia‘s D really didn’t give up many long runs to him as most of scores came from inside the ten and five-yard lines, plus the Caldwell from O-line was huge to begin with.
