With nothing but pride at stake Friday night, the Madill Wildcats made the trip to Tecumseh for a matchup against the Savages. Unfortunately, the playoff bound Savages were too much to handle as they dealt Madill a tough 56-22 defeat to end the Wildcats season. Tecumseh came out strong in the first quarter scoring 21 points thanks to a pair of touchdowns from Jalen Walker and a touchdown from Kane Ainsworth. Madill managed to get on the board late in the first quarter when Kendall Robertson found Mateo Fajardo for a 73-yard touchdown pass to make it 22-8 after the two point conversion by John Venable. Unfortunately, the Savages took over proceedings in the second quarter with four unanswered touchdowns. A three yard touchdown from Walker made it 28-8, before Dylan Graham got a 15-yard touchdown run to make it 35-8. Jamal Fair then made it 42-8 with a three yard touchdown run, before Graham finished off the quarter with a 63-yard touchdown run. After a scoreless third quarter, the Wildcats managed to get on the board again in the fourth, thanks to Robertson running 31 yards for the touchdown to make it 49-15. But Tecumseh had one more score in the fourth thanks to Lucky Longhom scoring from three yards out to make it 56-15. Fajardo then finished off the season with a highlight reel touchdown as he dashed his way 87 yards for the kickoff return touchdown to finish off the scoring. Robertson finished 3-of-12 passing for 118 yards and one touchdown, while John Venable had 15 carries for 55 yards in the game. Madill finishes its season with an overall record of 3-7.
