The Woodland Wildcats (1-7, 0-5) fell to the Villa Rica Wildcats on Friday night by a score of 14-8. Neither defense allowed a point in the first half, or in the game’s final quarter of play.

Villa Rica was able to get the first points on the board first on a Tristen Allen 30-yard touchdown run to give the visiting Wildcats an early 7-0 lead. Woodland was able to answer right back, however. Asa James scored on a 27-yard scamper to pull the Wildcats within a point of tying the game, but head coach Tony Plott had other ideas. He made the correct call as Woodland converted a 2-point conversion to give the Wildcats their first lead of the season since their season-opening win over Southeast Whitfield.

Villa Rica wasn’t done, however. TJ Harveson capped off a long, Villa Rica drive on a 4-yard scamper to give Villa Rica a 14-8 lead, a score that would hold until the clock struck zero.

Woodland will hit the field again next week as it travels to East Paulding for a game you can hear on WBHF.
