The Woodland Wildcats (2-5) fell to the Dalton Catamounts on Friday night 42-7.
The Wildcats allowed a long touchdown early in the game as quarterback Ethan Long hit Bubba Tanner. After Woodland fumbled the kickoff, Dalton set up at the Woodland 19-yard line. A penalty moves the ball up before Adriel Hernandez scored a 14-yard rushing touchdown on the next play. The Catamounts missed the PAT, but took a 13-0 lead into the second quarter.
Long and Turner connected for another touchdown in the second quarter. After converting the 2-point conversion, Dalton held a 21-0 lead. Brelace Williams tossed a touchdown pass on the next drive to put points on the board for Woodland. The Wildcats even got into the Catamount red zone, but was unable to convert a fourth down and instead turned the ball over on downs. Long then connected with Jeffson Locke for a 75-yard touchdown to give Dalton a 28-7 lead entering the half.
Hernandez scored his second rushing touchdown of the game in the third quarter before Adrian Gongora added a late, fourth quarter score to put away the Wildcats for good.
