Falcons Get First Win, 27-25

In a game where neither team had more than a four-point lead, Wilcox-Hildreth had a two-point margin at the final horn as the Falcons picked up a 29-27 win over Heartland Lutheran (Grand Island) in the first round of the D2-8 subdistrict at Shelton on February 21. Wil-Hil’s initial victory of the season moved them to 1-22.

Lutheran was up 6-5 after the first quarter but the Falcons’ 8-7 second period edge deadlocked the contest at halftime 13-13. 

The third quarter did nothing to settle the outcome as the teams each scored 10 and through three periods it was 23-23.
