Jackets Loss to Coyotes dooms themselves and Sherman

11-3-07 - The Denison Yellow Jackets loss to Wichita Falls, 30-22, eliminating both themselves and the Sherman Bearcats from the playoffs.

The Jackets had their chances early, forcing several turnovers, but were unable to capitalize. The Coyotes made plays late in the game to seal the victory and a playoff spot.

The loss was just as detrimental to the Sherman Bearcats as it was Denison. Sherman, who beat Denton Guyer 42-7, needed a Denison victory to have a chance at making the playoffs. The Bearcats took care of Guyer on the road, but will miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Next week Denison will play Sherman in the annual Battle of the Ax rivalry game, to conclude the season for both teams.
