The Kosciusko Whippets hosted the Winona Tigers in heated action Friday night. The game started out all defense, with only a missed field goal marking the first quarter. The second quarter had much more fire. The Winona Tigers drew first blood with a touchdown early in the second, and the Whippets came right back, tying the game at 7-7. But the Tigers showed their strength with two additional touchdowns, making the half-time score 21-7.
Both teams come out hot for the second half. Each team shortly rang up a touchdown, 28-14 at the end of the third. The fourth quarter continues the shootout with another pair of touchdowns, 35-21. And another by Kosciusko, 35-28. And that’s the final score as Kosciusko just couldn’t overcome that second quarter deficit.
Ethan Wood was named the Autumn Ridge Player of the Game.
