TIGER –Now 12-0, the Wildcats advance to the state quarterfinals for the fifth time in five years after handing the Toombs County Bulldogs the worst loss of their season.
The Wildcats advance after their decisive 34-14 victory in front of their home fans.
The Bulldogs won the toss but deferred to the second half giving the Wildcats the first shot at putting points on the board.
Gunner Stockton wasted no time by hitting Braxton Hicks in stride on the very first play from scrimmage for a 53-yard bomb.
Corey Keller added 14 more yards on three consecutive runs.
Then, on third and eight from the Bulldog’s 13-yard line, Hogan Woodard snatched a Stockton bullet in the end zone with an acrobatic catch for the touchdown.
The Bulldogs answered with an impressive drive of their own going 11 plays while converting two third downs and a fourth down.
The drive mixed repeated screen passes to both sides before #33 Derrick Mincey burst through the line and scampered 28 yards for a touchdown to pull the Bulldogs even on the scoreboard.
Carrying their momentum into the Wildcats ensuing possession, the Bulldog defense allowed a first down but then stiffened.
