Seiling eliminated in playoff match with Cherokee
Seiling saw its season come to an end in the first round of the playoffs at the hands of the Cherokee Chiefs last week despite taking the lead on the second offensive snap of the game.
Coach Gary Manuel and the Wildcats could not find any answer to stop the Chiefs for the second time this season, and fell 52-6.
“I told our kids nobody outside of our locker room expected anything from them,” said Manuel. “We were banged up and kind of left on the side of the road for dead, but the guys in this locker room didn’t believe that. Our kids came out and really fought hard, but when you are playing a good football team this happens. We had some plays that we needed to make early but just couldn’t, and you have to make them to put pressure on a team like that. But I don’t care what the score says, I was really proud of the fight our kids came out and showed early today.”
Taylin Gilchrist broke a 62-yard touchdown run to open the scoring, but that was the only points Seiling could muster on the night. With Bryson Gore and David Wion out, as well as offensive linemen Kaden Templin exiting the game in the first half, injuries continued to plague this team in general.
