A high-powered offense carried the Wilmot Panthers past Burlington, 52-37, Friday night.

The teams combined for more than 1,000 yards of offense with Panthers quarterback Chris Nelson leading the way. He finished with 407 yards and four touchdowns passing and added 47 yards and two more scores on the ground. Bennett Kothe chipped in with 167 yards rushing.

Host Burlington staged a third-quarter comeback that cut Wilmot’s lead to two points, but the Panthers couldn’t be stopped and rolled back in firm command as the final quarter counted down.

The victory improved the Panthers to 6-1 overall and kept Wilmot in contention for the Southern Lakes Conference title.
