From April 3-15, 2017, the Bobcats played in five games, only winning in two of them.

The Bobcats kicked off the games against Fallston at home. In the top of the third, the Cougars took a 1-0 lead, but Senior Jackson Rhodes crushed a three-run homerun to put the Bobcats up 3-1. In the bottom of the fourth, the Bobcats added two more runs to seal a 5-1 victory against the Cougars.

The next game was against North Harford, who took a 4-1 lead early in the game, but the Bobcats had a huge fifth inning, putting up five runs to give them another victory by a final score of 6-1. After these two games, things started going downhill for the Bobcats.

“The first two games were decent for us,” says Junior Liam Bowers. “We struggled a little on the defensive side, but thankfully our bats helped us out throughout those two games.”

The Bobcats’ next game was against the Curley Friars, and Curley came to play, as they smashed several home runs and dominated the game, putting up 16 runs to hand Bel Air a 16-6 crushing defeat. Things would just get worse for the Bobcats as their next game was against the Patterson Mill Huskies. The Bobcats jumped up to a 2-0 lead in the 5th inning, but the Huskies bounced right back in the 6th inning, tying the game up at two. This game would need extra innings where the Huskies would take the victory 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th inning. To top it all off, the Bobcats hosted Spalding in which Spalding would dominated the game, putting up 16 runs to defeat the Bobcats 16-0.

“We’ve been struggling lately, but those last three losses have been making us work harder and harder.” Junior Liam Bowers states.

The Bobcats’ next game is on April 19, 2017, at 3:30 p.m. where they will host the Rising Sun Tigers, the team the Bobcats beat earlier in the year, 13-0.
