Wildcats Win Over Forney

Wildcats Football Earns District Victory on the Road at Forney Friday Night

The opportunistic Wildcats Football Team forced numerous turnovers and then took advantage of them to earn their first win of the season and their first district win for 2019 at Forney Friday night (October 4). The Wildcats won over Forney, 32-13. The Wildcats recovered two fumbles and intercepted two passes in the first two quarters to give them constant good field position. After the second turnover, an interception by safety Chase Haney, the Wildcats got a 31 yard field goal from Brandon Zavala to break a scoreless tie and take a 3-0 lead with 9:02 left in the second quarter. On the next Jackrabbits’ drive, outside linebacker Aidan Walker picked off a Forney pass. Da’Korian Choc Sims scored a touchdown on a 15 yard run and the Wildcats went up 10-0 with 7:25 left in the first half. Later in the quarter, cornerback Dominique Sims recovered a Forney fumble. With just :32 seconds left before the half, Zavala booted his second field goal to give the Wildcats a 13-0 lead. That was the score at halftime. The Wildcats extended their lead with touchdowns on their first two drives of the second half. First the Wildcats went 55 yards to pay dirt. Choc Sims scored his second TD of the night on a 3 yard run. The Wildcats were up 20-0 with 10:01 left in the third quarter. On their next drive, the Wildcats scored again. Quarterback Kaden Wallace rumbled into the end zone from 5 yards out. The extra point kick was no good but the Wildcats led 26-0 with 9:23 left in quarter number 3. Then Forney cranked up their passing game and made the game interesting for a while. Forney got on the scoreboard in a big way with a 56 yard TD pass and run from quarterback Campbell Anderson to wide receiver Riley McMurren. The extra point was no good but Forney trimmed the lead to 26-6 with 4:26 left in the third quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, Forney scored again on a pass from Anderson to McMurren and Forney trailed only 26-13 with 11:16 to go in the fourth quarter. Then the Wildcats put on a solid display of running game football. Back Caden Davis went 31 yards to the end zone and despite a missed extra point, the Wildcats led 32-13 late in the game. That turned out to be the final score. Forney slips to 1-3 in district play and 2-4 for the season. The Wildcats improved to 1-2 in district and 1-4 overall. The Wildcats moved into fifth place just a game out of third place and one game out of the playoffs. The Wildcats have a Herculean task ahead of them. They take on first place Ennis, 4-0 in district and 5-1 overall, next Friday night at Gerald Prim Stadium.
