PAGE 6 HOGANSVILL HOME NEWS - FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2009 Cavalier Wrestlers Post Big Wins in LaGrange Duals By ANDY KOBER In their first match of the season, the Callaway High School wrestling team, under the direction of Coach J.J: Wahl, posted tremendous wins during the LaGrange Duals held last Saturday. Zach McIntyre led the Cavalier effort with five big wins during the tournament. Wrestling at 189 pounds, McIntyre won four of his five matches by pin. Wrestling at 135 pounds, Brandon Hontz had four wins during the tournament with three of those wins coming by way of pins. His only loss in the tournament came in a very close match in which two takedowns were the dif- ference. Ryan Kiss, competing at 119 pounds, was unbeaten in the tournament, posting three wins. He pinned the opponents in all three match- es. Also wrestling at 119 pounds was Sam Moseley, and he also went undefeated with wins in both of his matches. Both of his wins came by pinning his oppo- nents. Competing at 112 pounds, Jasper Woods went 3,2 in the tournament with two of his wins coming by pins. Clayton Vaught had two wins wrestling at 130 pounds. Dustin Vaught had two wins wrestling at 145 pounds. "I WAS pleased with our performance," said Walls. .... We still have.to get a lot better, but we did a lot Of pos- itive things that we can build on." The Cavalier wrestling team was scheduled to face Mt. Zion and Chapel Hill last Tuesday, but the results were too late for inclusion in this edition.

Entering their final game of the 1995 season with a 4-5 record, the Hogansvflle Greenwave had no hope of making the region playoffs. But, since it was the final year for Hogansville High School before Callaway High opened the following fall, the Taylor County game was anything but a mean- ingless contest. Taylor County won the toss, but deferred receiving until the second half. Hogansville received the opening kickoff and got a couple of first downs before their drive stalled and they had to punt. Taylor County's first drive netted them only three yards on their first two plays as they were swarmed by a fired-up Greenwave defense. On third and seven, however, halfback Keith People ran 88 yards for the opening score. The Vikings' extra point was good and they had a 7-0 lead, and the momentum, with 5:21 left in the first quarter. MOMENTUM is a strange thing, often chang- ing from one team to anoth- er rather quickly. Such was the case for Hogansville when kick returner Rundee Glanton took the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for their first score. Lichon Terrell's extra point was good and the score was tied, 7-7. Taylor County returned the kickoff 33 yards to their 40. After surrendering two first downs, the Greenwave took possession on a fumble recovery by defensive end Raymond Gates, giving them good field position at their own 42 yard line. Halfback Alfonso Gates gained four yards on first down and then on second and six, he broke loose for a 54 yard touchdown run. Terrell's kick was true and the Greenwave led 14-7 with 36 seconds left in the first quarter.

BOTH team's offenses then went cold and had to punt on four consecutive drives. On the Greenwave's second punt, Taylor County fumbled and Hogansville's Shannon Brock recovered. Hard runs by Glanton, Terrell and Alfonso Gates, and a successful fake punt, put the ball on the Viking five yard line. Chad Littlefield used two quarter- back sneaks to reach the endzone and extend the Greenwave lead. Terrell's kick made the score 21-7, with 33 seconds left in the first half. THREE consecutive punts led off the second half. The third punt was returned 57 yards for a touchdown by Rundee Glanton, his second return for a score on the night and Hogansville's third touchdown play of over Luther Jones NEwLoY00aTION 310 Greenville Street.

The extra point was no good, so the Greenwave led 27-7. Taylor County started their next drive deep in their own territory, but was able to move on the Hogansville defense. With 30 seconds left in the third quarter, halfback Marcus Ford ran 34 yards for the score. The Vikings were successful on a two point conversion and trailed 27-15. Hogansville's Alfonso Gates had his carry for a first down nullified by a flag on their next possession. Chad Howard punted to the Viking 14 and Raymond Gates stopped the kick returner in his tracks. A questionable pass interference call put the ball on the Taylor County 40, and they were able to pound out an 86 yard drive to score with 3:40 remaining. They trailed 27-23 after another successful two point con- version. Hogansville's offense had a three play and punt drive, giving the Vikings one last chance for the win. The night had a proper ending, however, after lineman Bradley Martin intercepted a middle screen pass and sealed the win for Hogansville. Hogansville ended their season 5-5 by winning the final football game in school history. AFTER 57 SEASONS, over 300 victories, one State Title, two North Georgia titles, six region titles and innumerable great memo- ries, the Hogansville, Greenwave football pro- gram came to an end on November 10, 1995.
