Redskins win season opener

CORNING—The Pocahontas Redskins officially kicked off their season last Tuesday night, November 20, with a 53-52 road win over Corning.

The game would be a close one all the way through with both teams putting up eight points in the first quarter and the Bobcats leading the `Skins 21-19 at the half. A strong third quarter performance by Pocahontas in the third, however, would prove the difference in the ballgame as they outscored Corning 21-14 to take a 40-35 lead heading into the final stanza. Although the Bobcats outscored the Redskins 17-13 in the fourth, the `Skins held on to win it by one to begin the year at 1-0. (No stats were available for the game as of press time)
