The De Soto Wildcats hosted the Mill Valley Jaguars in a KSHSAA Class 5A Sectional Playoff on Friday, November 13th. This battle between USD 232 High Schools came down to the very last play in which backup quarterback for the Wildcats, Tyler Schultze, threw a pass into the endzone with 5 seconds left and the ball bounced through two Wildcat football player’s hands. The ball hit the turf and the Wildcats had lost 13-16. This rematch game was a very different type of game than the week two first meeting in which Mill Valley defeated the Wildcats 70-21. The De Soto defense forced 5 Jaguar turnovers and held the 2019 state champions to only 16 points, well below their 47 points per game average on their season. The Wildcats finished the 2020 football season with an overall record of 8-2 and undefeated in the UKC with a second straight UKC Championship, a 4th consecutive Regional Championship, and a 2nd straight year of finishing as the Sectional Runner-Up.
