October 26, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY ­— After a strong year, Whitko’s football season came to a close Friday night against Bellmont.

Bellmont took a quick 28-0 advantage in the first half.

The Braves opened up the game with a touchdown within the first five minutes from kickoff, on their first possession.

They scored again three minutes later to make the score 14-0 at the end of the first stanza, but on the first play of the second quarter, Bellmont scored yet again to take a 21-0 lead.
