Head coach Tom MacPherson picked up his first win as Wildcat head coach September 5 as the team rolled through hosting Bradford County Tornadoes 43-7 to improve to 1-1 on the season..
Baker County’s offense had a monster night as Jacob Carter, Vic Givens and Jarvis Desue combined for four touchdowns on the ground. Carter ran for 111 yards on five carries, including a 55-yard touchdown blast up the middle in the third quarter. Givens ran for almost 50 yards and added two rushing touchdowns, while Desue had one of his own.
Carter also found receiver Zach Rafuse on a perfect 28-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.
The defense was dominant most of the night and shut down Bradford’s offense. CeCe Jefferson rebounded from Week 1′s quiet game with as a forced a fumble and made first contact on a gang sack. The senior defensive end also deflected a ball that fell into Junior Higdon’s hands for a pick-six for the team’s final score of the game.
The Wildcats will look to move above .500 September 12 when they host Providence.
