After a Senior Day loss five days ago, the Westminster football team wanted to bounce back Thursday, and that’s exactly what it did.

Behind 338 combined yards on the ground by Trey Merritt and Brett Bond, the Wildcats rolled past Borgia 46-6 in a soggy, blustery Class 4 District 3 first-round game at Parkway North.

“It was really big because that was a tough loss,” Bond said of the 17-10 loss to Duchesne on Saturday. “Everybody came out with a lot of effort tonight. Our theme was, ‘This wasn’t gonna be our last game,’ and that pumps you up.”
