PARADISE AND PLEASANT VALLEY OPEN UP E.A.L. PLAY TONIGHT AT ASGARD YARD
It doesn't matter who you are playing, where you are playing them, and how fatigued or mentally tired you may be. If you don't bring 100 percent effort and mental focus into a game, don't expect to win.
That was message being delivered by Paradise Bobcat coaches after their near meltdown at Sonora two weeks ago. The Bobcats led 27-7 against Sonora with 10:55 to go in the 4th quarter. And, even though the Bobcats had dominated the game to that point, it wasn't a clean game. They weren't sharp.
Sonora took advantage of this with quick touchdown drives and some mental mistakes by the Bobcats to take a 28-27 lead with :44 seconds left. Thankfully, for Paradise, Johnny Porter came to the rescue. His 86 yard kick-off return with some nifty blocking up front rescued the game and gave Paradise a 33-28 win.
The question entering tonight's game.....Have the Bobcats learned their lesson ?
