The Wildcats fell on Friday night to the state ranked St. Paul Flyers with a final score of 56-8.

This dropped the Cats overall record to 1-4 and their conference record to 0-2.

Friday night began with homecoming festivities for New London as senior wide receiver Nate Thomas was crowned homecoming king alongside Lexi Phillips who was crowned as the fall homecoming queen.

The Cats were able to hold the flyers off through over half of the first quarter but they grabbed their first touchdown with 4:08 left with a 28 yard run.

The Flyers kicked the extra point putting them up 7-0 in the first.

The team ran through the second and had a 14-0 lead at the end of the first after a two yard run into the end zone by their quarterback.

The Cats turned the ball over less than three minutes into the second quarter with an intercepted pass that led to another Flyer touchdown putting the score at 21-0 with 9:50 left in the half.

St. Paul had another interception which also turned into a touchdown with 5:09 left in the second putting them at a 28-0 advantage.

The flyers scored one more time in the first half with a 15 yard throw into the end zone which out the score at 35-0 at intermission.

The Cats started with the ball beginning the third where they earned their only points of the night.

Senior Trevor Spears had an 80 yard kick-off return for a touchdown in the first play of the second half.

The Cats were able to fall into the end zone for the two point conversion putting the score at 35-8.

The Flyers scored twice more in the third frame and once in the fourth with a running clock for the majority of the second half of action.

The Cats hope to get things moving in a better direction this week as they travel to take on the Western Reserve Roughrider on Friday night.

The Riders have a record of 1-4 as well as the Cats and each team will be battling for another win under their belt.
