Wildcats surprised by Manteno

WILMINGTON RUNNINGBACK Conner Dempsay (7) looks for a gap in the Manteno line as he runs up the middle for the varsity Wildcats Friday night at home. Dempsay had a four touchdown night, running for 143 total yards in 29 attempts to keep the 'Cats in the game. But in the end it was the visiting Panthers who pulled off the surprise, edging the Wildcats 28-27 to end Wilmington's 29-game streak for regular season victories. The 'Cats will host Westmont next, Sept. 8. Photo by Tom Neises
