Opp falls 20-14, had 14-0 lead

Opp held a 14-0 lead over Elba Friday night, but couldn’t hold on as the Tigers scored three unanswered touchdowns and won 20-14 in the Bobcats’ season opener.

“We just couldn’t get it done,” OHS head football coach Jack Whigham said. “We just played might hard against a quality football team.

“If we play that hard every week, then we’ll have a chance in every ball game we play,” he said. “The challenge is if we’re going to be able to come back next week and get over this emotional loos and go to work like we need to. That’s going to be the challenge.”

The Bobcats had 10 first downs compared to Elba’s 15.

Opp punted four times for a 31-yard average.

Opp will begin its region play next week in Daleville.
