MADERA - The Paso Robles Bearcats decapitated the Madera Coyotes during their home opener at Madera's Memorial Stadium 42-27. Mistakes were made from the opening kick-off when the Coyotes kept the ball from going out of bounds at the one yard-line. The next play was a Coyote fumble and Bearcat recovery in the end-zone to put Paso Robles on the board first.

The Coyotes would come back with seven and half minutes left in the first when Nathanial Nelson connected with Anthony Martinez for a four yard pass to knot the game at six. Half way through the second quarter Nelson hit Evan Whitlock for a 49 yard pass to put Madera up 12-6 going into the half.

Half way through the third quarter Paso Robles would tie it up at 12 and then Madera took command of the game by putting up another 15 points. Then the wheels fell off the bus and the Bearcats went for blood scoring 30 unanswered points in the fourth quarter which included a 89 yard fumble return by Paso Robles' Nathaniel Harris.

Madera's second loss of the season comes after two wins on the road to second-rate teams from Fresno and Reedley High Schools. Next week they face Tulare Western who has a state ranking between Reedley and Fresno High's of 719. Madera has a state ranking of 384. I remember a time when the Coyotes would schedule pre-league games with better teams to prepare themselves for league.

What do we get with pre-league wins from inferior teams, a false sense of accomplishment and a false sense of readiness. Why would a coach or an athletic director set up a schedule like this?

One word comes to mind, INEXPERIENCE.
