Prep football: Wildcats tame Tigers in 6AAA

The Section 6AAA title game didn't come easy at Husky Stadium on a fine evening for football on the second day of November.

The Wildcats, helped by four Tiger turnovers, whipped their old West Central Conference rivals from Morris/Chokio-Alberta 28-14.

The Cats (6-4) knocked off an undefeated team rated among the top 5 in Class 3A.
