Wildcats toppled by Wawasee in opener, 42-20

August 24, 2013

SYRACUSE — With just eight seniors on his team, first-year Whitko Head Coach Josh Mohr knew his young Wildcats would be tested in their opening football game at Wawasee.

The test came early when Warrior Clayton Cook snagged the opening kickoff and ran it back for a touchdown, giving Wawasee a lead in the opening 13 seconds — a lead it would never relinquish.

Wawasee, under the leadership of another first-year head coach, Josh Ekovich, went on to post a 42-20 win — its 12th in the last 16 meetings with Whitko.

Warsaw runs away with win over Col. City

For the Eagles’ errors — an interception returned for a touchdown, an 82-yard punt return, a lost onside kick, and another interception deep in their own territory — all added up to a 33-14 season-opening loss to the homestanding Warsaw Tigers.

“Near-misses on offense and just-misses on defense are not things we can afford to do when we are a smaller-roster 4A school,” Hudgins said.
