Wheeler Hangs on for Road Win
The Wildcats got a field goal and forced seven turnovers to spoil Woodstock's Homecoming.
The Wheeler Wildcats are used to being scheduled as a Homecoming opponent when they go on the road.
But if the Wildcats keep digging out wins like Friday's 3-0 result at Woodstock, that might start changing.
Wheeler soured Homecoming for the Wolverines with a 37-yard field goal by J.D. Barron in the third quarter and played strong defense to improve to 3-3 on the season and 1-1 in Region 5-AAAAA.
It also didn't hurt Wheeler that Woodstock (4-2, 1-1) committed seven turnovers.
For the first time since 1995, the Wildcats have shut out more than one opponent in a season. Click the play button for video highlights and comments from Wheeler coach Mike Collins.
