Wellman-Union suffered another loss Friday that wasn’t any easier to take than the eight before it.
In their second-to-last game of a single-victory season, the Wildcats hosted Loop, handing the Longhorns a 35-12 win and a 2-0 district record and likely playoffs spot.
The ‘Cats’ only touchdowns were on an 11-yard run from sophomore Luis Gonzales two minutes into the game and a 31-yard pass from Kolby Chase to Kaleb Chase early in the fourth. Neither attempt at a post-touchdown extra-point kick landed.
The Longhorns passed a touchdown in the first quarter and ran one in the second for a 14-6 halftime lead, then ran to their end zone twice more in the third and scored on another pass. Meanwhile, the home team was scoreless mid-game two full quarters.
The ‘Cats had 42 rushing attempts for 107 total yards and completed three of seven passing attempts for 48 total yards. They had seven first downs, four turnovers and six penalties for 65 yards.
The Longhorns had eight rushing attempts for 94 total yards and completed six of 12 passing attempts for 107 total yards. They had four first downs, two turnovers and five penalties for 29 yards.
The ‘Cats will be back on the road next Friday to wrap up their season in Sands.
