Owls Overpower Dukes

The Whitefish Bay Blue Dukes were overpowered by the Slinger Owls Friday night, 35-7, their second straight loss which leaves them at 2-4 (1-3) on the season.  It was the first road loss for the Dukes on the year.

Slinger jumped out to a 7-0 after the first quarter and a 21-0 lead with just over 3 minutes left in the first half behind a bruising power run game.  The Blue Dukes would get on the board before the half though on a Sean Callahan 80-yard touchdown run to make it 21-7 going into the break.

Both teams would keep each other off the scoreboard in the third quarter and the score remained the same to start the fourth quarter.  The Owls would tack on 14 more points in the last two minutes of the game after executing a fake field goal for a touchdown and returning an interception for a touchdown on the Blue Dukes ensuing drive.

Defensively for the Blue Dukes, Carter Smith led the team with 15 tackles, Callahan had 14, and Ryan Scarlett added 12.
