Collinsville Starts Season With 2 Wins
These are some of the many yards gained by Nick Rabbit (#22) on the evening as he was the Cardinal's main offensive weapon in an exciting win over Catoosa at Sallee Field Friday. This play was in the opening drive as Nick carried the ball 5 consecutive times moving from Collinsville's 29 yard line to Catoosa's 8. Lenard Creek then gained 5 down to the 3 yard line while Nick had to come off the field to get a cut wrapped. Rabbit returned for the next carry but Catoosa recovered a fumble on the 4 stopping the drive. My notes are unofficial, but I count Nick with twelve 1st half carries and eleven 2nd half carries. He had two rushing TDs.
Nick Rabbit (#22) also came up big on defense intercepting a Catoosa pass and returning it for Collinsville's first touchdown at 9:10 in the 1st quarter. Catoosa started that play at Collinsville's 26 yard line but pressure from Arron Watts (#35) rushed the pass attempt. Watts kicked the PAT for a 7-0 Cardinal lead.
Nick Rabbit Scored 3 TDs
Cardinal quarterback Tyler Chronister (#5) unleases a pass over the Catoosa linemen arms which Adam Thomas (#81) caught at the 3 yard line of Catoosa. Nick Rabbit (#22) scored from the 3 on the next play (below) with 3:07 left in the first half. The 2-play drive started after Garrett Thurman (#24) recovered a punt fumbled by Catoosa at their own 34 yard line. Another Aaron Watts PAT had the Cards up 14-0.
These CHS baseball players showed how good the turkey legs were that the team was selling at the entrance to the football game Friday night.
On Catoosa's first possession after going down 14-0 they attempted a backward pass which Collinsville recovered on the Catoosa 28 yard line. Adam Thomas (#81 left) took a reverse to the Catoosa 10. Two Nick Rabbit rushes got the ball inside the two yard line. A pass to David Chester (#82) was not allowed as he was ruled over the end line. Collinsville settled for a Watts field goal (below) and went up 17-0 with 57 seconds left in the 1st half.
