Points for Richmond Hill were hard to come by Friday night as the Wildcats were eliminated from the playoff picture after a 55-13 drubbing by the Westlake Lions.
The Wildcats could only muster one touchdown in the first half when tight end Ryan Steele scored on a 22-yard yard reception from quarterback Tyler Coleman with four seconds left in the first quarter.
The point after attempt after was good by kicker Britton Williams.
The Wildcats only other score came in the 4th quarter on a one yard run by Coleman.
The extra point was blocked.
Wildcat head coach Matt LeZotte was philosophical about the loss and end to the Wildcat playoff run.
“The unfortunate thing about being in the playoffs is that there’s only one team that satisfied when it’s all completed. Although we fell short of competing for a state championship, I’m extremely grateful for the time effort and energy our team put into making the 2020 season a success.
“When it came down to it tonight we were outmatched. We knew going into the game we could not make mistakes, and that was the tale of the first half.
We played very strong in the first quarter but we also missed on some key opportunities to be successful.
“The 2020 wildcat football team changed the culture in our school. They provided the example of what it looks like to selflessly commit to a team and an organization over a 12 month period. They were also able to show the Richmond Hill community what winning looks like. I think after everyone got a taste, everyone has enjoyed it,” LeZotte said.
