With good starting position the Cats. It didn’t take the Cats long to score. With only 3 plays under their belts, sophomore, Tyler Boman Busted loose for his first, and the teams first, scamper to paydirt.

At halftime the score 36-32 with the Wildcats scoring in the last minute on a deep pass from, Senior Quarterback, Steve Johnson to, Junior Tight End, Andrew Paulsen to take the lead before the break.
