Jacksboro 51, Cisco 0

The 2023 football season for the Cisco Loboes stands at 0 and 4 after Jacksboro won a lopsided victory 51-0 on Friday night, September the 15th in Jacksboro. Cisco’s starting tailback, Gus Hart, was out and its biggest lineman Talon Bruner was injured and did not play the 2nd half. Hart has a bruised leg bone, and I haven’t heard about Bruner, who looked from the stands as if his leg was hurt. We also lost a starting guard, and #25 Cody Gayle has a broken thumb.

Cisco loses to Breckenridge 41-6

Friday, September 8, 2023, at Chesley Field, the Breckenridge Buckaroos won the battle over the Cisco Loboes, as they kicked, carried, and threw the wobbly pigskin. The score was 41 to 6 in favor of Breckenridge. Cisco now is 0-3 for the year and Breckenridge is 1-2, but I might hasten to add the team is getting more polished and is coming together. The score is no indication of what transpired, and evidence of a really good football team is emerging from the ashes of Friday night. Cisco afforded Breckenridge 3 long scores the 1st half, and a 4th score was made with 7 seconds left in the half. Notice Breck ran the opening kickoff back, then Cisco marched the ball down to the Breck 25 yard line, and they stripped the ball from the Cisco runner and ran it 75 yards for a 2nd TD, and finally the 3rd Buck TD was set up by a pass interception; it was 21-0 in favor of Breckenridge at the end of the 1st Quarter and with 7 seconds left in the half it was 27 to 0. Meanwhile Cisco had marched the ball to the 5 yard line and the 11 yard line and came away with no score. In the 3rd Quarter the Loboes made it to the 5 yard line and the 14 yard line—before 2 interceptions foiled their efforts. To add insult to injury as the saying goes, Gus Hart. Cisco's starting tailback didn't play the 2nd half because of a knee injury. Breckenridge stripped the ball twice, once for a 75 yard TD and the other time near the goal line which prevented a Cisco score. So, taking everything into account, Cisco played a whale of a game, moving the ball freely from their spread formation, and utilizing the pass to great effectiveness. Yes, I witnessed the Lobo line playing their hearts out in the 100 degree heat for the 3rd week in a row and they were opening holes and keeping people out and stopping it up the middle. You guys are great. There are great things ahead. Brayden Rogers and Cole Thompson seemed to be all over the field. Remember and watch for these numbers this next game: #50 Jackson Wilks, #52 Cordell Harper, #53 Haden Rains, #55 Tyler Brown, #66 Talon Bruner, #73 Brant Slagle, #75 Tanner Thompson, and #88 Rezner Wilks.
