The Opp Bobcats return to the road this Friday night when they travel to Union Springs on Friday to battle the Bullock County Hornets.

The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. The game was originally slated to begin at 7:30 p.m., but the kickoff time has been moved up.

The Bobcats enter the game with a 1-2 record after winning their season-opener against Luverne and dropping their last two games.

Opp lost in Week 2 against the Daleville Warhawks.

The Bobcats fell to the No. 3-ranked Class 4A team in the state in the Dale County Warriors last week.

Opp jumped on the Warriors early last week taking a 14-0 lead in the first half.

The Bobcats went on top 7-0 in the first quarter when Brock Kelley scored on a 10-yard run. The PAT by Kelley was good for a 7-0 edge.

Drew Mims added a touchdown in the second quarter on a run of about 20 yards. Kelley's PAT was once again true and the Bobcats held a 14-0 lead.

Dale County, however, rallied to score 33 points for a 33-20 victory.
