Wheeler Hangs On In Season Opener

The Wildcats overcame penalties to edge Sprayberry Friday.

Wheeler got its only touchdown of the night on a fourth-quarter interception return by Allen Artis, as the Wildcats claimed their first season opener in nine years Friday in a 10-7 win over Sprayberry. 

Wheeler (1-0) overcame nearly 100 yards in penalties to claim the home victory over their East Cobb rivals, whom they haven't played in five years.

The game was a non-region contest for both teams.
