The Whiteford Bobcats will be moving on in the 2016 MHSAA football postseason after dismantling the Summerfield Bulldogs 50-28, Friday night during the team’s pre-district contest played at Whiteford Stadium. Whiteford will host next Friday night’s district championship game against the Morenci Bulldogs, who defeated the Pittsford Wildcats in an overtime 27-24 game played in Morenci Friday night.

After a 22-22 tied halftime score, the Bobcats went on to outscore Summerfield, 28-6 in the second half to advance in the state division-eight playoffs.

Bobcat senior running back Jesse Kiefer scored five touchdowns Friday night and converted a two-point conversion, accounting for 32 of the team’s 50 points.
