We could not catch a break.”Wellington missed a lot of easy plays to take advantage of their defense.“I think we dropped a least three or four touchdown passes,” Wilmoth said. “The one time we did find the end zone we get called back for holding, which we did do as our player mugged the guy.”Wilmoth said Wellington lost another ball carrier this week in the second quarter as Trey Cary went down with a wrist injury.“If you’re keeping count that’s now three ball carriers we have lost this season alone,” Wilmoth said. “We really need for some guys to step in and fill some big shoes so we can finish the season out strong”Jones had 51 yards on 14 carries.Walton had 18 yards on five carries.Hodson caught two passes for 25 yards.Ian Groom had seven solo tackles and four assisted tackles.Wellington seventh volleyball:The Wellington seventh grade volleyball made it 4-0 with a 25-9 and 25-15 victory over El Dorado on Thursday.
