PAGE 8 THE FLORALA NEWS - WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2017 el by Lisa Windham The Florala Wildcats took a two hour trip to Fairhope, AL Friday night to play the St. Michael's Catholic High Cardinals. The Wildcats got off to a shaky start on their first, drive when they lost a fumble at midfield. The Cardinals drove down the field and found the endzone on a run. However, an illegal formation pen- alty negated the touch- down. Florala's defense put the pressure on and forced a fumble which was recovered by Le- roy Mitchell and led to a Wildcat touchdown. The PAT failed. On St. Michael's sec- ond possession, Mitchell intercepted a pass at the Cardinal 40 yard line to set the Wildcats up at midfield. Jacob Ham- mac hit Shaun White on third and long for a first down at the Cardinal 6 yard line. Hammac eventually found pay- dirt on a quarterback keeper. Rashaad Cole- man added the 2 point conversion and the Cats went up 14-0 with 6:07 left in the first quarter. Florala's drive was halted when a rushing Hammac fumbled the ball into the Cardinal endzone resulting in a touchback.
