DENVER â€” Whitko lost its first Three Rivers Conference game of the season by one point Friday night at North Miami, 14-13.
Unfortunately for the Wildcats, a last-minute spark in Whitkoâ€™s offense wasnâ€™t enough to take the win.
With the Wildcats down 14-7 and less than three minutes left in the game, Whitkoâ€™s defense had its hands full. Literally.
Defensive tackle Andrew Warren caught an interception to give the Wildcats the ball on the North Miami 32-yard line.
Quarterback Alex Stoddard and Austin Mort went to work on an under two-minute touchdown drive in an attempt to tie the score.
