Falcons fall to SLC tri-champion Panthers


WILMOT — The game wasn’t smooth, negative offensive plays and turnovers were prevalent and the officials made some calls that were — to remain politically correct — confusing to both teams.

But when the clock finally drained to zero on an exceedingly long and bizarre game, the outcome was sweet for the Wilmot football team.

With a 28-7 win over county rival Central Friday at Frank Bucci Field, no matter how it looked, the Panthers claimed a share of the Southern Lakes Conference title.

Central stalls vs. Elkhorn

PADDOCK LAKE — These are the things that happen when you’re rebuilding.

Throughout the second half Friday against Elkhorn in a Southern Lakes Conference opener, the Central football team seemed poised to not only score its first points of the season, but also to wrestle away the momentum of the game and maybe even steal a win.
