Bobcat’s state title dreams end in New Lothrop

Posted on November 15th, by Marcia Loader in Sports. Comments Off

The Whiteford Bobcats’ bid for a state football title ended in New Lothrop as the unbeaten Hornets stung the ‘Cats 58-22 Friday night, Nov. 15 in regional play.

The halftime score was 49-16 with New Lothrop leading. Though Whiteford got the Hornets under control in the second half, holding New Lothrop to nine points, too much scoring damage was done in the first half bringing the Bobcats’ football season to an end a week after the team won the District crown.

New Lothrop advances to the state semi-finals next weekend, just one step from the finals at Ford Field.
