The Bossier Bearkats got a big game out of Chris Williams, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a strong Mansfield effort in a 39-11 District 1-3A loss Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

Williams rushed for a season-high 160 yards on 22 carries and scored on a 16-yard run.

But the Wolverines countered with 305 yards on the ground, including 126 by Lavonte Hall and 112 by quarterback Jaylin Wilson.

Bossier dropped to 1-8 overall and 0-4 in district. The Bearkats close out a tough season Thursday night against Green Oaks at Northwood’s Jerry Burton Stadium.

Bossier’s lone points of the first half came on a 37-yard Alex Galvan field goal that made it 13-3.

Chris Hall carried 15 times for 63 yards.

Junior linebacker Isaiah McKinsey led the defense with five tackles, including two for losses. Kelvin Brooks had four, and Avery Jones three.

Mansfield’s Wilson attempted just two passes and completed both for 66 yards.
