The running attack of the Milan Wildcats battered the Putnam County Midgets on Friday night, as the Wildcats won in Unionville, 35-14, clinching a third-consecutive Tri-Rivers Conference championship, and the #1 seed in the Class 1, District 6 tournament starting on Friday night.

Milan's Kevin DeRyke ran for 160 yards and two touchdowns, Aaron Richardson had 158 yards and two scores, while Tyler Curtis had 48 yards and a touchdown for the victorious Wildcats, who finish the regular season 8-0, and a perfect 5-0 in the TRC.

Putnam County gave Milan a struggle throughout the course of the game, falling behind by 14-0 early, but rallying to close to within 21-14 at the end of the third quarter.

The Midgets were down only 14-8 at the half, with Jacob Parker scoring on a short touchdown run, and converting the two-point pass to Cody Quint. A late second quarter interception kept the halftime momentum towards the home team.

A DeRyke touchdown run ended a long Milan drive to start the third quarter, giving the visiting Wildcats some breathing room, however, the Midgets responded quickly, with Parker finding Quint on a 66 yard pass, losing the Milan advantage to seven.

In the fourth quarter, Milan showed its championship meddle, closing out the Midgets on the strength of two touchdown drives. A mid-fourth quarter fumble recovery by the Midgets did not hurt Milan, as the Wildcat defense stiffened, giving the ball back to the offense.

The regular season winning streak for the Wildcats is now at 27 games. The victory sets up a rematch between Milan and Slater in the district quarterfinals, this Friday night (November 1st) at Cal Hubbard Field, on KTTN FM 92.3. Milan, earlier this season, beat Slater 38-7.

The 4-5 Midgets have earned the #4 seed in the district tournament, and a quarterfinal matchup against the 2-7 Fayette Falcons in Unionville. Should the Midgets and Wildcats both win their quarterfinal games, they would meet in the district semifinals on Wednesday, November 6th, however that meeting would occur in Milan.

Friday night's "Border War" from Unionville, was broadcast on KTTN FM 92.3 and www.kttn.com. KTTN will follow the 4th-ranked Wildcats in district play and as far as they advance, in the 2013 Missouri state playoffs!
