Wildcats fall to Crusaders 38-20

The BCHS Wildcats’ district championship and playoff hopes were dashed by a 38-20 road loss at Bishop Kenny November 1 to close out the 2013 season.

Mistakes plagued the Wildcats throughout the night as freshman quarterback Joe Green threw three interception–including two returned for touchdowns–and the team committed 12 penalties.

The team wouldn’t go down without a fight and played hard all game long. Mike Boone closed out his high school career with another great game as he hauled in his first interception of the year and added a 73-yard touchdown reception.

The Wildcats scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the deficit. Green found Anthony James on a 50-yard catch-and-run for a score, and running back Dalton Dyal forced his way into the end zone on a 3-yard run.

With the loss, Baker County ended its 2013 season with a 7-3 overall and 5-2 in District 3-5A.
