PAGE 8 THE FLORALA NEWS- WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 Wildcats squash Demons 20 0 by Jan Allred The Florala Wildcats got a hard fought win af- ter a long trip to McIn- tosh Friday night. The game was full of penalties and turn overs. The McIntosh Demons and Wildcats swapped turnovers ear- ly in the game but nei- ther team scored. As flags flew the Wildcats' defense con- tinued to give the of- fense scoring opportuni- ties. Quarterback Avery McNeill scampered into the end zone with 5:01 left in the first quarter but a flag negated the touchdown. At the end of the first quarter the scoreboard showed 0-0. The Wildcat defense forced another fumble that was recovered by Logan Ansley dur- ing the second quar- ter. McNeill found the end zone finally put- ting some points on the board. The point after attempt failed, 6-0. The teams contin- ued to swap out on of- fense with the Wildcat defense holding strong. The Wildcats forced another fumble and this time senior Sean. Grissett recovered the fumble for the Wildcats giving the Cats good field position with 3:36 left in the second quar- ter. However, the Wild- cats were unable to get into the end zone and at half time the scored was 6-0. The second half con- tained more defense and continued penalties. With 9:16 left in the third quarter, the Cats were trying to move the ball up field when they turned the ball over. On their next offen- sive possession, thanks to the quick thinking and fast feet of McNeill, the Wildcats got some good offense going. With 6:40 left in the third quarter senior running back Austin West made it into the end zone giv- ing the Cats a 12-0 lead. The Cats decided to go for two rather than a field goal and West zipped into the end zone making the score 14-0. The rest of the third quarter was three and outs for both teams. The Wildcats found the end zone one final time in the fourth quar- ter when West scored, giving Florala their fi- nal score of the evening. The Cats attempted the two point conversion but were stopped by the Demon defense. The remainder of the game was a defensive battle with both teams doing a stand up job.
