Wildcats still searching Fall to Bowman
By Jarann Johnson
First place, winning and victory are things that everyone wants. The Wildcats wanted it again last week on the road against Bowman County but couldn’t get it and fell 60-26.
Early on it looked like the Wildcats could finally get that win. After giving up a touchdown on a 60-yard run to Kyle McGee, the Wildcats trailed 6-0.
Coming back from a 6-0 deficit wasn’t hard for the Wildcats. They used a passing play to even the score.
Weston Meckle found Cole Helmers on a 19-yard pass, tying the score 6-6. On the Wildcats’ chance to take the lead with a successful 2-point conversion they were stopped.
Bowman didn’t waste any time regaining control of the lead using their run game to wear down the Wildcats. Bowman ended the first quarter on a 24-0 scoring streak.
McGee ran for his second score of the game, a 22-yarder, and Tel Lardy added two rushing touchdowns, a 3- and a 37-yarder. Bowman converted 2-point conversions after each score and led 30-6 at the end of the period.
