Badger Varsity Football Lumbers To A Halt

Due to injuries and failing grades, the Buckholts varsity Badgers were only able to field seven players in Oglesby last Friday night. Four starters were absent from the lineup and two were nursing injuries.

After warm up drills, the boys suited up.

The Badgers looked good for most of the 1st quarter, but failed to score
any points and that period ended with Oglesby leading 20 - 0.

The 2nd quarter was less kind to Buckholts than the 1st. What was once
seven became six, then five and finally, with only 4 players left on the field
and no hope of the three game-injured Badgers returning to the game, Head
Coach James Shelton wisely surrendered the game. So the Badgers final game
of the 2019 season went into the books as a loss to Oglesby 34 - 0 in the 2nd
quarter with 6:18 left on the game clock.

A Short Night

Last Friday night, the varsity Badger football team got to go home early. Hosting the Calvert Trojans in Jim Hauk stadium, Buckholts could not conjure up any points.

Fighting through injuries, the Badgers managed to make it to halftime. But with Calvert leading 46-0, the "mercy rule" was invoked and the game was over.

Nevertheless, the home team and supporters mustered for Senior Night honors.

Senior football players honored were Kenneth Shelton, Juan Melendez, Jonathan Cazares and Jason Duran. Senior cheerleaders honored were Julissa Cardona and Elizabeth Trdy.
