Hurricanes ride turnover to big win

Posted Friday, October 07, 2011 by Sidney McClain

Wren blew into Woodmont’s homecoming Friday and beat the Wildcats 52-6 in a Region 1-AAAA football game. “You never know what will happen in a football game, especially with teenagers,” Wren coach Jeff Tate said. “I thought we executed well at times. We had a lot of guys out there that played hard.”

The game started as a defensive struggle but Wren quarterback Caleb McClain broke through for a 4-yard touchdown with 38 seconds left in the
first quarter. The Golden Hurricanes (6-1, 2-1) recovered the ensuing kickoff and scored on the first play to go ahead 14-0.

Tate and Woodmont coach Chad Dockery agreed that was a large part of the game.

“That was a momentum change,” Tate said. “It was a big deal especially with high school kids. They get a little adrenalin going and play a little crisper.”

“We kind of went brain dead a little bit on that kickoff. We knew they were going to do that,” Dockery said. “That was a big shift in momentum.

High school football is all about momentum. Before that happened, I thought our kids were playing exceptionally well, play­ing hard.”

the second quarter to go to halftime leading 35-0. The third quarter started with another big play for the Hurricanes.

After receiving the second-half kickoff, Woodmont, (1-6, 0-2) started a drive. It was cut short when Adam House intercepted a Wildcats pass and ran for another touchdown.

Woodmont scored with 8:01 left when Hakim Frazier caught a Austin Suratt pass for a touchdown.

“It’s very frustrating to put together three good quarters against T.L. Hanna,” Dockery said, referring to the Wildcats’ narrow loss last week. “We came out tonight and played well. Then Wren scored. “They are a very good football team and they are going to score. We have got to learn to rebound from that and not shut down.”

“Before (the turnover), I thought our kids were playing exce ptionally well, playing hard.”
