MURFREESBORO — Wilson Central started out fast but dropped their second
game in a row on the road at Siegel 33-7.
The Wildcats' only score was set up by a sack as the ball popped loose. Dee Williams recovered the ball at the 10 - yard line and strolled in for the easy touchdown and the score was 7-0.
"We started off fast and got the lead 7-0." Wildcat coach Brad Dedman said. "Offensively, we need to do a better job up front and it starts with me."
Siegel quarterback Connor Smith came back in the next series and led the Stars on a nine-play, 80-yard drive capped by an 11-yard run by Smith to tie the score with less than three minutes remaining in the first quarter.
Then, the Siegel special teams got in on the act as Tyler Walton fielded a punt, cut to the center of the field, got in the secondary and was gone 55 yards for a score and Siegel took a 14-7 lead.
Siegel was driving for another score in the second quarter but the ball came loose from the running back and Ian Hart scooped the pigskin and ran over 40 yards to the 46-yard line setting up Wilson Central in good field position.
But the Wildcats could not move the football and was forced to punt.
Siegel moved the ball 74 yards, set up by a third-and-10 completion from Smith to Tae Martin of 37 yards. Another galloping run got the Stars closer to the goal line and Janeal McDonald ran the ball in from 4 yards out to close the first half scoring.
In the third quarter, Siegel put the game away with a long time-consuming drive
that ate up minutes off the clock. Armente Smith dove over from 1 yard out
and the Stars had a commanding 26-7 lead.
Early in the fourth quarter, the Stars closed out the scoring on a long pass play
from Smith to Martin of 65 yards.
Wilson Central (2-2) will host Gallatin at 7 p.m. next Friday.
