Buckaroos lose fourth straight game

The struggles continue for Breckenridge Buckaroos football. After a season-opening win against Jacksboro, the team has lost four straight games after last Friday’s 28-12 loss at Holliday.

The offense had season-low outputs in both rushing and total yards against a tough Holliday Eagles team that is allowing 10 points per game.

After a scoreless first quarter by both sides, the Buckaroos experienced a glimmer of hope. Chase Lehr put the Buckaroos ahead with an 18-yard pass to Jerry Lawson for a touchdown. The extra-point kick was no good, but the Buckaroos led 6-0.

The lead was short-lived. The Wing-T offense off the Eagles responded with a drive down the field. It was capped off with a six-yard touchdown run. The extra-point kick was good and gave the hosts a one-point lead.

The Buckaroos responded to take the lead before halftime. Lehr threw his second of two touchdown throws to Adrian Ruiz for a 22-yard score. It was Ruiz’s first touchdown reception of the season and gave his team a 12-7 lead. Lehr finished the game with eight completions and 122 pass yards with his touchdown throws.
