WELLS — Following a 58-0 victory over McDermitt, the Wells football team closed the year on a two-game losing streak.

In a pair of contests against Eureka and Carlin, the Leopards were handed two lopsided losses.

Versus Eureka — March 26

In its last home game of the season, Wells was shut out and beat down in a 58-0 blanking against Eureka.

The Vandals essentially sealed the outcome early, scoring 30 points in the first quarter.

Eureka added a pair of scores in the second quarter and rolled up a 44-0 lead by halftime.

In the third quarter, the Vandals put up a touchdown and a two-point conversion — adding another TD in the fourth.

At the final horn, Eureka tore off a 58-0 victory.

Of the Vandals’ eight touchdowns, three came on defense — returning two interceptions for pick-sixes and also taking a fumble to the house.

Versus Carlin — April 1

The Leopards closed the season on the road, and the Railroaders rode their home-field advantage to the fullest.

In Carlin, Wells lost its season finale by a final score of 64-28.

The Leopards finished the year with a 2-2 record, despite winning just one game.

After losing its season opener 62-46 on March 13, in Owyhee, the Braves forfeited the contest after playing an ineligible athlete.
