Whippets drop season-finale to finish a year full of learning at 2-8
The Okeene Whippets saw their season come to an end last Friday in a 68-22 loss to Wellston to drop them to 2-8 in their first year at the eight-man level. For Coach Chad Miller and the Whippets, it was a year of learning in which Okeene was not eligible to participate in the playoffs due to their independent status.
Much like the first loss to Wellston, Okeene actually got off to a hot start and captured the lead multiple times in the first quarter. Unfortunately, the Whippets couldn’t reach pay dirt again as they went from having a 22-14 lead at the end of the first frame, to having the game end early in the fourth quarter.
While it was a night of high’s and low’s for Coach Miller and the Whippets, it was especially meaningful for Okeene’s five seniors, as it was their final game putting on the pads in front of the hometown fans.
