Sometimes the final result of an athletic contest is a head-scratcher and this one fits that category. On paper, beforehand, the game had the potential makings of a high-scoring shootout. But Silver Lake’s defense prevented the Falcons from getting anything going offensively. W-H actually had negative total yards from scrimmage. W-H played without quarterback Lance Aspegren, going with freshman Bryce Tobiassen in his place.
A late second quarter kickoff return of 75 yards by AJ Jenkins was the lone scoring generated by Wilcox-Hildreth.
