Wildcats downed by Wawasee, 20-7

August 17, 2012

SOUTH WHITLEY — First-game miscues led Whitko to a season-opening loss to Wawasee Friday night in South Whitley.

Despite possessing the ball twice as long as the Warriors in the first half, turnovers and penalties kept the Wildcats from the end zone, while Wawasee pulled out to a 14-0 halftime lead.

“It was just the little things,” Whitko Head Coach Wayne Swender said. “We counted nine little things in the first half that didn’t go our way. We were moving the ball really well in the first half and all-in-all we were happy defensively.”

Whitko hosts Columbia City next Friday.

Eagles fall to Warsaw

“I think its very simple; — Warsaw did what they needed to win the game and we did not,” Columbia City Head Coach Randy Hudgins said. “Warsaw won and we lost, and its because we didn’t make the plays when we needed to make them.”
