EVART – It was a tough pill to swallow for the Evart Wildcats, ranked No. 6 in the state, when the final score showed a 26-21 victory for No. 2 Beal City on Friday night on Sept. 23 in a showdown of Highland Conference football powers.
A potential go-ahead Wildcat touchdown was inches short when the officials ruled the ball was fumbled out of bounds prior to crossing the goal-line. Victory was so close for the Wildcats.
