Chisago Lakes fights through wet homecoming to beat Princeton 21-12
As a steady rain fell early in the Wildcat’s homecoming matchup with Princeton last Friday night, it looked like the Wildcats were going to turn it into a blowout.  They scored in their first two offensive plays of the game to go up 13-0.  On their next possession, a Wildcat player scored on a long run to apparently give the Wildcats a three touchdown lead while the game was in the first quarter.  But the play was called back because of an inadvertent whistle by one of the referees.  The Tigers went on to stop the Wildcats on that possession and what had looked like a blowout became a pretty tight matchup.  The Wildcat defense came up with two big plays late in the game and held off the charging Tigers 21-12 for their second win of the season.
