Throughout the summer, The World-Herald will prepare you for the high school football season with a story previewing a new team or teams each day. This week, Class D-2 is featured, with Nos. 5-10 today.

The Cross County Cougars boys basketball team got double-figure scoring from three of its players along the way to a 47-32 home-court victory over the Exeter-Milligan Timberwolves Friday night in Stromsburg.

The Wynot defense took it from there as they shutout the Exeter-Milligan offense in the second half and went on to win the Class D2 State quarterfinal match-up by the final score of 62-32.

After playing a 46-40 overtime game with Class D-2, No. 4 Exeter-Milligan in the opening game of the season, and coming off an 81-6 blitzing of Giltner in the first round of the state playoffs, Kenesaw had high hopes for an upset of the defending champion Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
