The Whitefish Bay Blue Dukes fell down early to the Homestead Highlanders Friday night on Homecoming and lost with a final score of 40-16. The Dukes’ second straight loss leaves them with a 3-4 overall record, 2-3 in conference, with just two games remaining.

It was all Homestead early as they jumped out to a 9-0 lead after the first quarter and were up 16-0 before Bay finally got on the board with 11 seconds left in the first half. A lack of discipline, however, would allow the Highlanders to still get on the board before the break with a 48-yard field goal that would make the score 19-8.

The Bay D forced a quick 3-and-out to start the second half and the Blue Dukes looked poised to make it a ballgame after driving into the redzone. But, the offense faltered out and had a field goal attempt blocked.

Another Highlander 3-and-out gave the ball right back to Bay, who would also go three plays before punting. The wheels would come off there as Homestead would need only two plays to find the endzone and break the game open.

The Highlanders scored with 7:42 remaining in the 4th quarter to go up 40-8 before Bay put a drive together on their final possession that ended with points.
