Bobcats defeat Woodville Eagles 28-6
The Orangefield Bobcats will be headed to the state ranked Cold spring-Oakhurst Trojans (3-0) this Friday. The Bobcats (2-1) are coming off of their best game of the season in which they beat the Woodville Eagles 28-6.
Orangefield set the tone for the evening on Woodville’s first possession by holding them to three plays and a punt. The Orangefield offense took a while to get on track as they turned the ball over on downs on their first possession.
On the next Woodville possession, Levi Shores intercepted quarterback Tyler Weatherford for the first of what would be a total of four interceptions thrown by the Eagle quarterback. Shores interception set up a four yard run by Justin Bradley with Curt Nelson kicking the extra point to give the Bobcats an early 7-0 lead.
Orangefield’s defense held firm and forced the Eagles to punt the ball late in the second quarter. The Bobcats took possession on the twenty yard line after the punt went into the end zone for a touchback. On the first play of the drive, Eric Truncale ran up the middle then out raced the Eagle defenders for an 80 yard touchdown. Nelson’s kick made the score 14-0 at the half.
Woodville scored mid-way through the third quarter on a Trent Daniels reception of a T.C. Mitchell pass with the failed kick attempt. Orangefield lead 14-6.
Carl Wiley finished out the third quarter with a 14 yard touchdown run bouncing off of a few defenders with five seconds left on the clock. Nelsons kick made the score 21-6 going into the fourth quarter.
Orangefield’s defense continued to pressure the Eagles in the fourth quarter. The Eagles were facing a third and eleven on their own 15 when Truncale grabbed his third interception of the night and returned it for a score. Nelson made his fourth kick of the night to make the final score 28-6.
