After his team’s 24-22 loss to the Booker T. Washington Lions on Friday night at Leonard C. Barnes Stadium, Bossier coach Michael Concilio had nothing but praise for his Bearkats in his postgame speech.
Concilio told his players it was the hardest he’s seen them play all season and that the Bearkats just ran out of time.
“We just came up a little short,” he told them.
He also said it was one of the top 10 guttiest performances by one of his teams.
The game was close all the way. Bossier trailed 12-7 at the half and 18-15 after three quarters. BTW extended the lead to 24-15 in the fourth quarter. The Bearkats scored to get within three but couldn’t quite come all the way back.
