WEST GEORGIA VS CATAWBA

WEST GEORGIA VS CATAWBA

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY – RECAP
By: Nick McGahee

 

The Wolves came into Saturday’s game with high expectations and a lot of returning starters for a high caliber offense. Willie Candler returned for his Junior season as the starter at quarterback alongside All Gulf South Conference Team Senior running back Devontae Jackson. A lot of firepower came with a lot of high expectations, but the Wolves met those expectations with a solid victory against Catawba.

 

The Wolves started off very slow to start the game, and after a missed field goal found themselves down 3-0 to end the first quarter. Willie Candler eventually found the end zone with a strike to Malik Henry to help the Wolves take a 7-3 lead into the half. UWG found their stride in the second half as Devontae Jackson rushed for an 8 yard touchdown, but the extra point was missed. Willie Candler found Tevin Isom early in the fourth quarter for a 4 yard touchdown, giving the Wolves a 20-3 lead. Catawba was forced to punt in the next possession but K.J. Palmer returned the punt 62 yard for another West Georgia Touchdown, 27-3. The finishing touch came in the last 50 seconds as Sam Ndem rushed for a 20 yard touchdown give the Wolves a 34-3, Final.

The Good:

The defense is where it’s supposed to be, picking up 3 turnovers (1 fumble recovery, 2 interceptions) as well as 3 sacks. The Wolves held Catawba to 195 yard of total offense.

The Bad:

Even though they scored 27 points, the offense still seems to struggle in the red zone, something that plagued them last year. The Wolves were 4 of 8 in the red zone.

The Ugly:

Kicking seems like something that the Wolves just can’t figure out, last year the Wolves were 10 – 17 in Field Goals; to start their 2018 campaign they are 0-3 and a missed PAT.

The Wolves will be at home again on Saturday, September 8th against Limestone. The game will start at 2 PM.
