HANCOCK - Friday wasn't one of the better nights for the Hancock football team.
Westmar outplayed the Panthers in several different phases of the game helping the Wildcats to a 30-16 win.
"I can't say enough about the intensity that our kids played with tonight," Westmar coach Shawn Swisher said. "I think that my coaches did a nice job of preparing our kids for tonight's game. At 1-4, it is tough to get the kids ready mentally. That's why I am very pleased. Our kids persevered."
Hancock coach Bill Sterner was impressed with Westmar's offense.
"I thought that Westmar had a great game plan," Sterner said. "I thought that offensively Coach Swisher had about five plays that he ran well. One of them was the sweep. That sweep helped them to get several first downs, especially in the first half. They kept on moving the ball."
Westmar (2-4) got on the scoreboard first with 4:20 remaining in the first quarter when Johnny Shingler broke through left tackle for a 2-yard touchdown run and Russell Miller threw a conversion pass to Justin McGregor.
