Evart falls to McBain

EVART — The Evart Wildcats were on the losing end of a 38-13 decision against McBain for the Wildcats’ homecoming on Friday night.

Dillon Danley scored on the Wildcats’ first and last plays from scrimmage in the game, first on a 65-yard score, and a 16-yard score to close the contest.

“I thought our kids played extremely hard,” Evart coach Pat Craven said. “Unfortunately, we were physically outmatched. We couldn’t stop them. We tried to do a variety of things to stop their rush attack, but we just weren’t able to do it.”

Danley led the Wildcats on the ground with seven carries for 93 yards and two scores, while Trevin Ladd went 12-for-17 for 130 yards and an interception through the air. Chris Imhoff had 11 tackles and Jake Pattee had 10 for the defense.

“A couple of kids got dinged up a little bit so we finished the game up with 13 kids,” Craven said. “But our kids played hard and I was proud of their effort. We’ll continue to move forward.”

The Wildcats (2-5, 0-4 Highland) head to Lake City this Friday.

“They’re kind of in the same situation as we are,” Craven said. “I expect it to be a good football game. We’ve kind of developed a nice rivalry with Lake City the last few years. We’re both struggling with records, but I expect it to be a hard fought game.”
