Football Week 10 Spotlight: Bears fall to Kingfisher for 4th in district

Body

Playing from behind most of the night, John Marshall scored two touchdowns in the third quarter but it wasn’t enough as the Bears suffered a 43-26 loss to Kingfisher last Friday night at Taft Stadium.
“We just had a basic lack of execution,” coach Aso Pogi said after the game. “Several bad snaps and penalties put us behind the sticks a lot. It makes it tougher to move the ball.”
The Bears relied more of a quarterback by committee approach with Jason Lewis, Bryce Stephens and Jalen Shells seeing time under center.
