Football: Panthers ready to run
ELLSWORTH – After a 2-6 campaign in 2012, two losses in particular still bother Ellsworth head football coach Clair Austin.
In back-to-back weeks against New Richmond and Osceola, the Panthers fell 14-7 in both games. Sitting at 2-2 before the New Richmond game, the losses piled up for Ellsworth and the team was forced to watch the postseason from the bleachers.
“It still eats at my craw a little bit,” Austin said of the close losses.
