GRAHAM — When Santo’s option offense gets rolling, it puts opponents on edge and drains precious minutes off the clock.
But the Wildcats couldn’t gain any traction Friday afternoon against No. 3 Windthorst’s dominant front.
That translated into a lot of Santo punts and short fields for the Trojans, who kept their title defense hopes alive with a 40-7 victory at Newton Field.
Windthorst (12-1) advances to play Albany next week for the Region II-2A Division II title, while Santo ends one of its best seasons in school history at 11-2.
