Kellogg 0, Moscow 34
KELLOGG — The Wildcats turned the football over six times and couldn’t move the ball on the visiting Bears who notched their first win in more than a year.
The Wildcat defense was up to the task, routinely forcing the Bears into late down and distance situations — but penalties and offensive woes kept them from generating any positive momentum.
Kellogg (0-1) hosts North Fremont this Friday at Teeters Field at 7 p.m. in an important 2A matchup.
