What’s Happening to the Wildcats Defense in the Fourth Quarter

What’s happening to the Wildcats defense in the fourth quarter? It’s been a season long problem. The last two weeks, in Wildcats’ district wins, opponents have narrowed the gap in the fourth quarter. Big final quarters were keys in the team’s first three losses including the heartbreaker to Texas High. Wildcats Defensive Coordinator Triston Abron won’t use fatigue as an excuse.

Witnesses, reporters, and just the ordinary curious attended the trial. Some days the testimony would go a little past noon before we dismissed for lunch. Right at noon, somebody in City Hall would flip a switch and the very loud air raid siren...
