The Bulldogs took a 13-8 loss to the Cuba City Cubans in their final game of the season last Friday night.

Boscobel did all their scoring in the first half with a single touchdown and a successful two-point conversion.

“It was one exciting yet nerve racking and very emotional game on Friday night for us,” said coach Joey Martin. “We prepared for Cuba City like it was a championship game. Our coaches have been outstanding all year in preparation, but this week was unique as I could tell everyone was committed to the fullest.

“Our game plan was simple.  We wanted to come out fast and be as physical as possible, similar to last week against Mineral Point.  Our kids believed they could beat them, and they almost did.  Unfortunately, we left two scores inside the 10 yard line which was very, very frustrating.”

Cuba City was able to score a single touchdown and kick in the first quarter followed by a touchdown in the second quarter, before the Bulldog defense brought them to a halt, holding the Cubans in check throughout the second half.

“It was tough to see the time tick off the clock one last time for our seniors,” Martin said. “What a special group of young men!  There are so many leaders in that group, full of talent, and a very fun group that will be greatly missed by many in the Boscobel football program.

“The way we finished the season shows so much promise.  We did so many good things all year and our talent proved itself the past three weeks.  It's easy to say, but is so true, I wish we could have this group of seniors for one more season. Our kids played so well and it was nice to see them put four quarters together.”

 Tommy Monroe threw seven passes with one completion for 25 yards. He also led in rushing with 55 yards in 16 attempts and a touchdown, followed by Chase Kull with 8-53.

Dallas Marks led in receiving with one catch for 25 yards.

Wyatt Roth led in defensive play with 14 tackles.

The Bulldogs ended the season with a 1-6 conference record and 3-6 overall.

“Thank you all for coming out to support Boscobel Football in our journey to produce the quality football tradition that has been long in the wait,” Martin said. “I think we are taking the necessary steps forward to get to that traditional place.”
