Football Drops Opener to #4 West Georgia
SALISBURY, N.C. -- NCAA II fourth-ranked West Georgia scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to claim an opening 44-13 win over host Catawba on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium and Kirkland Field. The Wolves overcame five turnovers in the win, forcing four and holding the Catawba Indians to just 145 total yards.
Quarterback Dallas Dickey was nearly perfect for West Georgia, completing 15-of-17 passes for 204 yards and a pair of scores. He also ran for a touchdown. Aares McCall eclipsed the 100-yard mark on the ground with 107 yards on 11 carries.
Dickey threw both of his touchdown strikes in the third quarter to help the Wolves break away from a 16-13 lead at the half. His first strike went for 47 yards to Qa Walker and the second went to Shaq Hall for 29 yards to push the margin to 30-13 midway through the period. West Georgia tacked on two fourth-quarter scores for the final margin.
Cary Littlejohn (Columbus, N.C./Polk Co. HS) produced the lone Catawba touchdown with a five-yard run late in the second quarter to pull the Indians within 16-13. He finished with 57 yards on the ground. Bruce Smith (Winston-Salem, N.C./N. Davidson HS) caught three passes for 22 yards.
Kyle Kitchens (Decatur, Ga./Decatur HS) had a big day on defense for Catawba. He was in on seven tackles with three going for losses, including a sack. He would force two fumbles and recover one.
The Wolves scored on their opening drive as Dickey ran in from 10 yards. West Georgia looked poised to go up by two scores, but Kitchens forced a fumble at the Catawba 36. The Indians were able to capitalize with a 25-yard field goal from Chad Hollandsworth (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth HS) to cut the deficit to 8-3.
A sack and forced fumble by Jamal Lackey (Mocksville, N.C./Davie Co. HS) led to a second Hollandsworth field goal late in the first quarter to make it 8-6. Catawba forced another fumble late in the first quarter, but the Indians failed to benefit from the miscue and Telvin Brown followed with a 66-yard punt return to put the Wolves up 16-6 after a second two-point conversion. Littlejohn would get the last points for Catawba with 4:21 left in the half.
