Wildcats Escape Sharks

June 2, 2007

Albany -- Headed into Saturday night's game, the South Georgia Wildcats had six wins, while Corpus Christi had just one lone victory on the season.

The Wildcats offense averaged almost twice as many points-per-game, seemingly making the contest a major mismatch.

But after scoring a touchdown with two seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Sharks were just a two point conversion away from sending the game into overtime, and possibly pulling off the upset.

The South Georgia defense will hold on the final play, as a wide receiver reverse option pass would fall incomplete, and the Cats escape with a 46-44 win.

Scott Cloman was named the offensive player of the game, with eleven catches for 173 yards and four touchdowns, but was not happy with the performance against the Sharks.

"Not acceptable," says Cloman. "Not acceptable at all. If we want to win a championship, we can't play like that."

Head coach Derek Stingley adds, "I'm gonna take it. A win is a win, of course. But the way we won, I can't be happy with it."

The Wildcats host top-ranked and undefeated Scranton-Wilkes/Barre next week at 7:30pm.
