BURLINGTON – The Burlington Wildcats got back on the winning track with a Pioneer League win over the Wellsville Eagles 8-6 in Burlington Friday night.

Wellsville struck first with a 57 yard run at the 7:57 mark in the first quarter. Wildcats stuffed the two-point conversion attempt and trailed 6-0 at the end of one-quarter of play. Forcing Wellsville to punt deep in their own territory from the 10-yard line, the Wildcats capitalized on a shot punt which bounced back toward the line of scrimmage resulting in a net 3-yard punt. Gavin Price got the call on an 11-yard end sweep to put the Cats on the board and take the lead with a successful two-point conversion. Several turnovers by both teams in the second half thwarted drives to keep the score close.
