Panthers tackle high-scoring Cats

Published 2:40 pm Tuesday, October 23, 2012

If Georgiana School hopes to score its second win of the season Friday night, it will have to find a way to slow down a Florala High School offense that has scored 166 points in its last four games.

The Wildcats, who own a 4-4 record and a 2-4 mark in Class 1A, Region 2 play, average 29.8 points per game, but have scored more than 40 or more points in three of their last four games, including a season-high 58 points in last week’s win over McKenzie School.

The Panthers enter Friday’s contest allowing 42.1 points per game. In their lone win this season, the Panthers held Red Level High School scoreless. The shutout was the first for the Panthers since Oct. 23, 2009, when they blanked J.F. Shields 43-0.
