The Whippets came back and held Beloit Turner scoreless throughout the entire 2nd half of the game, and Whitewater running back Will Leibbrand found the end zone twice in the 4th quarter on runs of 14 and 57 yards. Unfortunately, the first half deficit was too much to overcome, and the Whippets fell 13-21.
The Whippets will look to rebound on the road at East Troy on Friday, August 30th.
