Wildcats lose 21-13 to Westside

The Wildcats committed five turnovers September 26 as they fell to 0-2 in the district with a 21-13 home loss to the Westside Wolverines.

Two second-quarter touchdown runs by Amari Dubose and Corteze Davis gave the Wolverines (2-3, 2-0) a 14-7 lead at halftime. The Cats (1-4, 0-2) closed the gap through the third quarter as Jacob Carter connected with Zach Rafuse on a 19-yard touchdown pass. The team’s two-point conversion failed, leaving it trailing 14-13.

The Wolverines took the final eight-point lead with 1:04 left in the game as Dubose punched the ball in from 2-yards out to cap off Westside’s 11-play, 84-yard drive that ate almost five minutes off the clock.

The Cats still had a chance to tie the game, though, and took over the ball on their own 35-yard line. They moved the ball to Westside’s 40, but Carter’s last second heave was picked off for his third interception of the night.

Baker County will try to salvage its season October 3rd when it hosts Wolfson.

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.

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.

Cats fall 46-26 at Ed White

The Wildcats didn’t get the performance they were looking for August 22 in the Kickoff Classic as they fell 46-26 at Ed White.

Baker County got off to a slow start to the game on both sides of the ball as the Commanders took a quick 21-0 lead in the first quarter. The Cats tried to rally back after Vic Givens scored on a 40-yard catch-and-run from quarterback Jacob Carter that breathed life back into the team. But three first-half turnovers and a failed fourth-down conversion deep in Ed White territory derailed the momentum they were building.

The second half was back and forth with coach Tom MacPherson working in the back-ups and junior varsity players. JV player Eugene Farmer had a pair of interceptions in the second half to lead the defense.

The Wildcats will kickoff the regular season next Friday at home against St. Augustine.
