West Genesee quarterback Bailey Gauthier scores his second touchdown of the game on a third-quarter scramble in Friday night's game against Cicero-North Syracuse. Despite Gauthier's solid play in his first start in a month, the Wildcats lost, 28-24, to the Northstars.
continued Gauthier, returning from a three-game injury absence, hit Michael Schmidt on a 59-yard TD pass just before the period ended, only to have C-NS restore the lead to 28-18 as Nick Golembieski found the end zone from 33 yards out with 10:04 to play.
One more time, the Wildcats offered a response, this time on special teams. Right after Golembieski scored, Tommy Washington returned the ensuing kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown.
For the third straight time, though, C-NS stood up on defense and prevented WG from getting the conversion, and it made more key stops down the stretch to preserve the margin.
