Giesige powers Bobcats past Bulldogs for fourth straight win

MORENCI — Whiteford’s boys basketball team is on a roll.

The Bobcats had its highest offensive scoring output of the season Thursday in beating Morenci, 81-55. It’s the most points Whiteford has scored in a game since February of 2018.

Cole Giesige led the Bobcats with 25 points. Luke Rasor scored points and Josh Hill scored 11.
