Wildcats hold on to claim seventh title in school history

Delmar vs. Milford

NEWARK, De - The Delmar Wildcats finished off their season in grand style on Saturday night, defeating Milford 14-7 and earning the school's 7th Division II state championship.

Delmar got on the board just 5 plays into their first offensive possession, with junior running back Te'Shawn Dennard rumbling 59-yards to the endzone to giving the Wildcats a 7-0 lead just 3 minutes into the game. 

The teams would trade touchdowns just before the half, with Delmar taking a 14-7 lead into the locker room. 

The second half proved to be a defensive battle, with the Wildcats getting their second and third interceptions of the night of Milford quarterback Tayione' Matthews to hold on for the win. (Milford's David Bowman finished his career as the school record holder in rushing yards, touchdowns, and tackles.)
