An unbeaten run through the 2012 high school football season came to an end last night for the Milan Wildcats, who were beaten 20-9 in the Class 1, District 6 championship game at Cal Hubbard Field against the visiting Salisbury Panthers, in a game broadcast on KTTN FM 92.3 and www.kttn.com. The win sends Salisbury into Saturday afternoon's state quarterfinals with a season record of 11-1, while Milan finishes the season at 10-1.

After a scoreless first quarter, Salisbury's defense struck early in the second, with a linebacker blitz forcing a fumble that was recovered at the one yard line. Two plays later, Austin Francis scored on a one yard sneak, with the extra point making the score 7-0 Panthers.

Milan answered the score quickly, with a long run by Brett Sinclair setting up the Wildcats first-and-goal from the ten yard line. Three plays later, Aaron Richardson plunged over the goal line from a yard out, making the score 7-7.

Salisbury took the lead back on the following kickoff, with Austin Wyatt going 85 yards down the west sideline at the Pit. The extra point attempt failed, leaving the Panthers up 13-7, a lead that ballooned to 20-7 by the half, on a 40 yard Francis run and extra point with 3:21 remaining in the half.

While Milan's defense bent in the second half, the Wildcats would not break, holding Salisbury off the scoreboard through the entire last two quarters. While Milan's offense struggled to move the football on the ground, the special teams unit added a safety with 3:59 to go on a blocked punt that went through the end zone. The Wildcats got no closer on the scoreboard.

Perhaps the biggest negative statistic from the game that went against Milan was turnovers. The Wildcats suffered four fumbles lost and two interceptions through the game, while the Panthers turned over the ball once (on a botched punt with seven seconds left in the first half), and happily leaned on field position and a strong defense to position themselves for the victory.
