TheĀ Whitefish Bay Blue Dukes fought to the end but ultimately fell to theĀ Nicolet Knights on Friday night, 17-8. It was the third straight loss for the Dukes and puts them at 2-4 in conference play going into the final week of the season. They need to win in order to put themselves on the bubble to make the playoffs.

The Knights got on the board first with 6:48 left in the first quarter on a long touchdown pass. They would add a field goal early in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead before Bay would respond with a long touchdown run and successful two-point conversion to make it 10-8 going into the half.

It was a silent third quarter for both teams until Nicolet found the endzone on their first play of the fourth quarter on a 4-yard QB keeper. That would be the final score of the game as the Knights defense kept the Dukes offense in check for most of the night.
