Quarterback Jacob Flores completed 20 of 28 passes for 278 yards and one touchdown, but the Falcons still lost to Waukesha North, 49-13, on Aug. 26.
Flores, who took over for the injured Andrew Mallmann in the second half of the Falcons' victory over West Allis Central on Aug. 22, found Dan Alexopoulos for an 80-yard score and Dillon Peters for a 37-yard touchdown, both in the second quarter.
The Peters touchdown brought Whitnall, which had trailed 21-0 early in the game, within 21-13 at halftime.
North, though, scored three more touchdowns in the third period to pull away. North quarterback Brennan Demark passed for 369 yards and seven scores.
Alexopoulos had a good night with six catches for 167 yards, but the Falcons managed only 26 net yards on the ground.
