UNATEGO – Six games in a row, spanning two seasons – the previously undefeated 2017 Bainbridge-Guilford Bobcats fell victim to the mighty Spartans of Unatego this past Friday at 28-0.
“We are still where we want to be, we just got to take care of business this week. If we do, then we still own our own destiny (playoff race),” said Bainbridge-Guilford head coach Israel Lorimer. “I felt like we were very evenly matched, I know the score doesn’t show that, but we made a lot of mistake – bad snaps, and guys going to the wrong spot. We just weren’t very focused.”
At the half, B-G trailed Unatego at just 14-0 – a mark that coach Lorimer said was lucky to be as low as it was.
“We needed to play our game, we came out flat and we just weren’t ever able to get that score or play that changes that flatness. Obviously, we’re on the road, and we just weren’t able to muster that play,” said coach Lorimer of the Friday, September 22, loss. “We had our film session and we did do some good things, but we just hurt ourselves. We got the ball, then we fumbled. They fumble right back to us, and we just weren’t able to capitalize. They get a touchdown, then we get a drive going and need to go for it on fourth down and don’t make it. It’s 14-0 at the end of the second quarter. It was uncharacteristic of this year’s team, we didn’t practice well this week.”
