Turnovers sack Hornets’ in loss to Panthers
CLIMAX — Mistakes can be disastrous.
Climax-Scotts took advantage of three Mendon turnovers and made the Hornets pay by handing them a 28-14 loss in the Division 8 district championship on the Panthers’ home field.
“Climax-Scotts is a good football team, but I just felt like we hurt ourselves tonight,” said Mendon first-year head coach Bobby Kretschman.
Climax-Scotts advances to face Morenci at home next week in the regional championship.
