Wildcats win over Panthers
After a 40-6 first-game loss to East Union, they trimmed their opponents scoring in a 31-0 loss to Okolona.
In their third game of the 2013 season, they cut enough points to tip the scale and take a 25-20 win over Coahoma County.
The Wildcats handed the Red Panthers their first loss of the season and on their home field to boot. The Panthers had already taken wins over Marshall and Williams-Sullivan, but the Wildcats kept pushing until they got the scoreboard to light up in their favor.
Coahoma County got on the board first and led 6-0 at the half. The Wildcats began their march to the goal line in the third quarter with James Buggs pushing across from one-yard out to score and Marquis Vance got the PAT through the uprights.
The Cats went to the air later in the quarter with success as Johnathon Huffman hit Larry Jones for a 40-yard touchdown.
In the fourth quarter, Wyatt Esterley completed a 30-yard TD pass to Titus Conley and Buggs again crossed the line from one-yard out to seal the Wildcats win.
Assistant Principal Emily Snellings said the win was good for both team and community morale.
“They have proven to the school, the community and more importantly to themselves that they can win,” Snellings said.
The Wildcats will host Coffeeville Friday on Falkner Field in Okolona. The Pirates are currently 2-1, having defeated both Calhoun City and Bruce and taken their lone loss to Water Valley.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
