KWL stops Blackhawks in season opener

Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central came up a bit short in White Lake at their first football game of the season Friday night.
The final score left the Blackhawks down, 14-24, versus the Kimball/White Lake WiLdKats.
KWL struck first with a 25-yard sideline run from Corbin Heath. The two-point conversion put the WiLdKats up, 8-0.
The Hawks were quick to respond however, with a Landon Ochsner kickoff return for 47 yards and a Tucker Kingsbury run down to the three-yard line. Austin Messmer punched it in from the three for the score.
After a successful conversion, the score remained tied up at eight until late in the third, when KWL’s Heath took another one to the bank from 30 yards out. Another WiLdKat TD early in the fourth, a six-yard quarterback keeper by Riley Talbott, put the Hawks down by 16.
The Blackhawks regrouped and put together a nine-play, 72-yard drive, capped off with another score from Messmer. The seemingly successful two-point conversion was ruled short and the game remained a two-score contest for the Hawks at 14-24 and just over six minutes to play.
WWSSC couldn’t recover an ensuing onside kick, sealing the loss for the Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks totaled 215 yards on offense. Kingsbury added up 84 yards on 11 carries and Messmer racked up 93 on 14. Joe Davis completed 4-of-8 passes for 13 yards, while his counterpart, Kingsbury went 1-for-3 for just one yard.
