Wildcat senior Charlie Calvert looks for running room Friday night against the Fort Benton Longhorns.

The Harlem Wildcat Football team recognized their seniors prior to the start of the Northern C contest with the Fort Benton Longhorns Friday night.

The Longhorns began the game with an eight play 65 yard score to go up 8-0. The Wildcats couldn't muster any offense on their first possession, turning the ball over with a fumble. Three plays later the Longhorns were in the end zone again, taking a 16-0 lead.

The Wildcats' second possession ended with a blocked punt turning the ball back over to Fort Benton at the Harlem 11 yard line. Harlem made an outstanding defensive stop turning Fort Benton over on downs.

Momentum seemed to be switching over to the Harlem side of the ball. Senior Running Back Clay Adams picked 42 yards with a burst of speed around the right edge of the Longhorn line all the way down to the seven yard line. Harlem was unable to score and turned the ball back over to Fort Benton.

The Longhorns added 22 points in the second quarter to lead 38-0 at halftime. Fort Benton maintained control down the stretch defeating the Wildcats 58-0. Harlem will conclude their season Friday night in Belt against the No. 2 Huskies.
