By Tim McGrath CC Sports Writer

The Medina Bobcats are on a roll! The Bobcats improved their season mark to 2-0 by rolling past the San Antonio Atonement Academy 78-40 in 6-man football action played on Friday, Sept. 5 at Bobcat Stadium.
The Bobcat offense dominated the game for the second consecutive week as senior quarterback Ben Dabney and junior running back Jason Ross led the Medina offensive effort against Atonement that resulted in the 38-point Bobcat victory. Dabney threw for 6 touchdowns while Ross totaled five TDs that included 2 rushing and 3 receiving.
Medina Head Coach Mark Coley called Ross the "catalyst" in the Bobcat offensive attack because of his ability to turn checkoff passes into big gains for his team. "He's like a little bowling ball. He takes dump passes and turns them into big plays getting everybody fired up on the sideline. I would say that he was definitely the catalyst for us on Friday night," Coley said.
Ross led all rushers in the game with 179 yards and a pair of scores while senior fullback Ryan Little added 63 yards and a TD in 12 attempts for the Bobcats. Dabney completed 11 of 27 passes for 6 TDs while Logan Lestourgeon saw time at the QB position, completing 3 of 6 passes for 69 yards and another Bobcat touchdown.
Bobcat receivers included Lestourgeon with 4 receptions for 96 yards and 2 TDs, Ross with 3 for 84 and 3 TDs, Jacob Lindstrom (2-32-TD), Alex Medina (2-30-TD) and Angel Torres (2-12).
Medina was also good on 9 of 10 PAT attempts, accounting for 18 total Bobcat points. In 6 man football, the teams receive two points for a successful kick and only one point if the team runs or passes for the conversion.
The Bobcat defense was led by Lestourgeon and Brae Sanders with 9 total tackles each while Colton Arnold, Little and Torres chipped in with 7 total tackles each.
Coley summed up the night with these words; "All in all it was a good night. It took a little while for our heads to shrink down from the big win last week but we came back to earth and played well most of the time. We're still having a little trouble with 6-man nuances but we are getting there!" Coley remarked.
The Bobcats have an open date this week and will resume play on Friday, Sept. 19 when they travel to Selma to take on the River City Believers Academy. Kickoff will be at 7 pm.
