Bobcats ready for Tigers

The Eunice Bobcats rolled to a 27-7 win over Iota in the Joe Nagata Memorial jamboree on a relatively dry field.
The elements will be a lot different Friday night as the remnants of Hurricane Harvey soaked the Bobcat Field grass all week.
EHS head coach Paul Trosclair said the wet conditions could impact both teams.
“I think ball handling is the number one issue when you are playing on a field like that,” the coach said. “It will come down to who makes the lease amount of mistakes because the conditions will not be great.”
