When you can move the ball 99 yards in one play, you know it’s going to be your night.
Already sporting a 14-0 lead, Wilson Central (2-6) was backed up at their own 1-yard-line facing a 3rd-and-15. Instead of just pushing ahead for a few yards and punting away, Central used Aaron Hubbell’s big arm and Garrett Todd’s speed to go almost the entire length of the field on one play.
That made it 21-0, and LaVergne (2-6) put up a fight, but in the end the Wildcats came out on top 38-14.
Central got on the board with a pair of Hubbell touchdown passes. He found Stratton Farmer on the first score from 31 yards out, then on their next drive, connected with Dalton King for a 7-yard score.
After the 99-yard strike, LaVergne was able to get on the board in the final minute of the half to make it 21-7 just before the break.
The Wolverines got behind running back Montez Gray, and cut the lead to 21-14 early in the third quarter on his 61-yard touchdown run. However, the Wildcats didn’t back down and put the game away. After King recovered a fumble at the 37-yard line, it only took Central three plays to get into the end zone. Hubbell capped it off with a 1-yard run.
On the next drive, Will LaFollette kicked a 28-yard field goal to make it 31-14. Kwamez Kirby finished the scoring on a 10-yard rush.
Central heads into a bye week before the final two games of the season. The Wildcats will host Lebanon Oct. 20 with a 7 p.m. kickoff.
