CHILDRESS — Blowing past the Perryton Rangers Friday, Sept. 3, the Childress Bobcats earned their second-straight lopsided victory of the 2021 season with a 29-7 final.
Earning the homecoming win was senior quarterback Collin Bishop, who ignited scoring with a pair of touchdown runs – one for 38 and the other for 4 yards – and a two-point conversion in the first quarter. Bishop also racked up 116 rushing yards in nine carries and 315 passing yards, going 22-for-36.
Keeping things hot on offense, junior receiver Lamont Nickleberry hauled in 10 catches for 106 yards.
Defensively, the Bobcats held the Rangers to a mere 137 total yards of offense, only 29 of which were through the air, thanks to Zion Fuller, who paved the way with 15 tackles and a sack, and Scout Smith, who followed with 11 assists.
