YATES CENTER — The Yates Center High Wildcats got “run all over” by the West Elks Patriots, according to Head Coach Ben Weihn.
The Patriots’ scoring onslaught ended the Wildcats’ suffering at halftime, 52-6, according to the Kansas eight-man mercy rule.
“We got beat by a bigger, stronger, faster football team — that’s all there is to it,” Weihn said.
West Elk opened the first quarter with 22 unanswered points against the home team. Robert Arnold had the only score of the game for the Wildcats, a touchdown reception in the second quarter.
Yates Center rushed for 90 yards in the contest, and had 46 yards of passing. Caleb DeNoon led in rushing with 49 yards, followed by Austin McNett with 32. Arnold had two receptions for 23 yards and one touchdown.
Justin Rossillon led in solo tackles with nine, followed by McNett and DeNoon with six apiece.
The loss drops the Wildcats’ record to 1-1 on the season, they play in Waverly next week. Weihn said his team needs to rebound quickly.
“Hopefully we’ll be back on track this week,” he said. “We have a good group of kids.”
