OTTAWA LAKE – A touchdown inside the final minute broke a 30-30 tie and gave the Whiteford Bobcats a thrilling 38-30 junior varsity football win over Summerfield
The Bobcats are 3-0 on the season and 1-0 in the TCC.
With the score knotted a 30-30, Summerfield was forced to punt on a fourth-and-20 play with 1:12 to play in the game. Whiteford’s Luke Masserant blocked the Bulldog punt attempt and the Bobcats recovered inside the 10-yard line. Cole Giesege scored on Bobcats first play to give the Bobcats a 36-30 lead.
Giesege intercepted Summerfield’s final pass of the game to secure the win. The Bobcat freshman finished the game with four of Whiteford’s five touchdowns, including one on the final play of the first half with no time on the clock. Levi Hillard had the other.
Besides his blocked punt late in the game, Masserant also made a key play in the first half when he knocked down a Summerfield two-point conversion attempt.
