El Dorado fell behind early and was unable to recover as they lost their final home game of the season to Mulvane by a score of 41-6.

The Mulvane Wildcats received the opening kick. On the second play of the drive, Mulvane sophomore quarterback Tab Creekmore connected with Drew Ellis on a 65-yard touchdown pass less than a minute into the game.

After El Dorado’s first drive stalled after five plays, the Wildcats were forced to give the ball back to Mulvane. Mulvane wasted no time adding to their lead as junior running back Cole Diffenbaugh broke free for another long score on the first play of the drive to put Mulvane up 14-0 less than four minutes into the game. The Mulvane offense had run just three plays, and already had two touchdowns of 60 yards or longer.

El Dorado finally came up with a big play when Zach Wittenberg intercepted a pass deep in Mulvane territory. The Wildcats drove the ball down to the one yard line, but the Mulvane defense came up with a big stop on fourth down to get the ball back and keep El Dorado off the board.

On El Dorado’s next possession, the Wildcats drove the ball into the red zone, but turned it over on a fumble due to some miscommunication.

Mulvane added to their lead on their next possession as they went up 20-0 on a short touchdown run early in the second half.

El Dorado responded with a 70-yard drive capped by a 21-yard touchdown run by senior running back Braden Morgan. After a failed two-point conversion attempt, El Dorado trailed 20-6.

With less than a minute before halftime, Tab Creekmore found Drew Ellis for another long touchdown pass, this time for 40 yards giving Mulvane a 27-6 lead going into halftime.

El Dorado failed to move the ball into Mulvane territory in the third quarter, and only got past midfield once in the fourth quarter, as Mulvane iced the game with two more touchdowns to secure a 41-6 win.

Braden Morgan finished with 148 yards on the ground, while senior quarterback Cody Wittenberg added 55 rushing yards.

El Dorado falls to 2-5 and will close out the regular season with a trip to Augusta to take on the Orioles. Augusta defeated Independence on the road to improve to 2-5.
