The Whippets hosted the Rock Valley Conference leaders, the Edgerton Crimson Tide, for their Homecoming Game on Friday October 11th. The Whippets struck first scoring in a big way on a 76 yard touchdown run by Will Leibbrand on the second play of the game. Unfortunately the Crimson Tide offense was too much to handle as the Whippets lost by a score of 54-13.
It was a special night for Leibbrand as he racked up 186 yards rushing on just six carries. Eli Kohl had the other Whitewater touchdown, a run of 6 yards in the 4th quarter. Martin Gonzalez led the defense with 9 tackles, Evaristo Soto added 7 (2 for a loss), and Carter Friend and David Cushman each had 6 tackles.
The Whippets will finish their season as they travel to Jefferson to take on the Eagles this Friday at 7pm.
