OHS Defense Steps Up; Offense Can't Capitalize On Opportunities

Odessa High did all they could on defense against the Abilene Eagles, but the Bronchos fell to AHS after not capitalizing on multiple opportunities.
Odessa High traveled east down I-20 to Shotwell Stadium on Friday night and battled with the Abilene High Eagles. The Bronchos fell 42-21 when the clock hit zero, but OHS played well enough defensively to pick up a victory. It was the offense that couldn't quite capitalize on multiple opportunities to punch the ball into the end zone and put points on the board.

OHS now sits in 7th place in the District 2-5A standings with a 3-5 overall record and 2-4 in district. Their playoffs hope aren't completely out the window just yet, but they're half way there.

Bronchos head coach Ron King was proud of his defensive effort, but wasn't pleased with all of the missed opportunities, saying "Our defense played extremely well (and) gave us several opportunities. We had, I know of two opportunities outside the 10 (yard line) and we didn't convert and one inside the 30 (yard line) and still weren't able to capitalize so the opportunities were there we just weren't able to capitalize on those opportunities and they were able to make the plays when they needed to and we didn't make the plays when we needed to."
