Though Bobcat Jake Becki scored on a 23-yard touchdown catch at the end of the fourth quarter, it wasn’t enough to overtake Waterford who won the state MHSAA semifinal game 36-20 and advances next weekend to play in the state finals at Ford Field. The two-point conversion failed.
Waterford scores in the fourth quarter and follows it with a two-point conversion, now leading as of 2:50 p.m. 30-14.
With 3:31 left to play at 3:02 p.m., Waterford scores again for a 36-14 lead on a 28-yard run. The Bobcats prevent the conversion attempt
The only score of the third quarter was a Jesse Kiefer one-yard run to make the score Waterford 22, Whiteford 14.
FIRST HALF…Whiteford trails 22-8 at halftime in the MHSAA state semifinal football playoff against Waterford at Hazel Park High School Saturday afternoon.
Though the drive in was under nearly white-out conditions for those approaching the site, only flurries fell through the first half.
The lone Whiteford score in that first stanza came on a run by Cody Kiefer.
Waterford scored three times including a safety on a long snap punt over Bobcat punter Herbie Bertz’s head.
The Bobcats had two possessions within scoring distance: one in the first quarter resulted in a fumble and the second was just before the half as Waterford stopped the run from the one-yard line on fourth down.
