Whitewater, WI (WXOW) -

For the second straight season UW-La Crosse came close, but couldn't finish off Whitewater.

The Eagles lost 21-14 in a rain-soaked WIAC game at Whitewater Friday night.

Starting quarterback Tarek Yaeggi left the game in the second quarter after throwing a pass.

His arm was in a sling when he came out after halftime.

Drew David took his spot and threw a pair of touchdown passes, one to Cal Mazur and another to Nick Holcomb.

But Whitewater's Drew Patterson had a 93 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to make it a 21-7 ball game.

UW-L falls to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in the WIAC.
