Sports OT Game of the Week: Beulah challenges St. James, top team in region

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It’s been a long time coming, but Beulah Bobcats have put together a great start. Now they have a chance to take the next step, and that’s why their showdown with Saint James is the Sports Overtime Game of the Week.

Cody Flounoy’s Bobcats have made a big leap this season, reeling off five straight wins to open the season, their best start since 1995. These Bobcats have won in all kinds of ways, in blowout fashion, and pulling off victories in the final seconds.

Even with last week’s close road loss at Bullock County, the Bobcats are in the thick of the 3A-Region 3 title chase, tied for second, one game out of the lead. With region leader Saint James coming to town, here’s their chance to prove they belong at the top.

The Trojans have won five straight after a season opening loss... including four straight region victories, all by double digits...

This is the big test, and a big opportunity for the Bobcats.

Sports Leader 9 will be live at Beulah this Friday for the 5, 5:30 and 6 PM newscasts, and we’ll have highlights Friday during Sports Overtime at 11 PM Eastern time.
