Blazers Back On Winning Track

September 24, 2005

Valdosta - The Valdosta State football team was hoping to bounce back from its first loss of the season as they hosted Central Arkansas Saturday night, and it wasn't easy, but the Blazers got it done 12-7.

The Bison were driving for the win late in the game, but the V-S-U defense picked off a pass at the nine yard line with less than ten second to go to secure the victory.

Valdosta State led 10-0 at the break and added a safety in the second half.

Central Arkansas scored their only touchdown in the third quarter.

Blazers quarterback Barrett Wilkes was 22 of 38 for 287 yards and a touchdown.

VSU is now 4 and 1 on the season, and travel to Delta State next week.
