Albany -- The South Georgia Wildcats defense held the Florida offense scoreless in the first half on their way to a 42-32 win over the Firecats Saturday night.

It's the first time the Wildcats (7-4) beat their division rival in three games this season.

Wide receiver P.J. Berry caught four touchdowns in the game, and also ran for another score.

South Georgia led 28-6 at halftime, with the Firecats (8-3) only TD coming on a disputed fumble/incomplete pass that was returned for a score.

The victory gives the Wildcats back-to-back wins for the first-time since April.

"It's a big confidence boost for the team," says head coach Derek Stingley, "and we're playing good football right now, so hopefully we can just keep this thing going."

James Harris adds, "We played a complete game this week.  No stupid penalties, and getting after the quarterback, giving him a hard time getting off passes."

The Wildcats head to #1 Spokane next week for a showdown with the Shockers.

It will be a homecoming for Andrico Hines and Antwone Savage, as the quarterback and wide receiver played in Spokane last season.
