The Bridgeport Bulls struggled to slow down the Graham Steers in the District 3-4A Division II opener last week.

The Bulls allowed 550 yards in the 62-7 loss to the unbeaten Steers.

“They are a real good team. If we played to our potential, it could’ve been closer,” said Bridgeport coach Shannon Wilson. “We’re still trying to learn our system and improve.”

The Bulls (1-6) face a big game Friday against a Krum team that has also struggled this season. The Bobcats fell to Iowa Park 56-14 last week, dropping to 1-6.

“We’re in the same boat,” Wilson said. “We hope we can play a complete game and play our best when the games matter the most.”

In a five-team district, the winner Friday would take a big leg up in the hunt for one of the league’s four playoff spots.

Krum’s lone win came against Lake Worth, 41-29. That was the only game in which the Bobcats did not allow an opponent to score more than 35 points.

Last week, Iowa Park piled up 49 in the first half.

The Bulls are not taking the defending league champions lightly.

“They have some good and talented players,” Wilson said. “We have to block and tackle well.”

The Bulls will need to get their offense going again. The Bulls managed only 134 yards against Graham.

Bridgeport was without running back Christian Hand, who was injured against Benbrook. The Bulls rushed for 58 yards last week.
