Written by: AJ Schaffer on Tuesday, August 28th, 2018
Woodrow Wilson started with the ball to start the game but eventually punted it away. This was a sloppy game full of turnovers and penalties.
Woodland Hills was the first team on the board. They scored on a 15 yard pass from Gurreri-Judson to Jay Smith, which made it 7-0 with 3:13 in the first quarter. That was the score at the end of the quarter.
Woodrow Wilson ended up punting it away on their second drive. On the next 2 drives for Woodland Hills they turned it over but Woodrow Wilson couldn’t take advantage of either turnover.
Later in the quarter they finally got on the board on a 2 yard run by Amir Gerald. A failed 2 point conversion left the score 7-6. Gerald had the majority of the workload for Woodrow Wilson who rushed for 117 yards on 27 carries.
Despite turning it over 3 times in the first half, Woodland Hills had a 7-6 lead at half. Woodland Hills went 3 and out to start the second half.
The third quarter didn’t feature any scoring, which featured many penalties. Woodrow Wilson was driving to end the quarter.
Within the first minute of the fourth quarter Woodrow Wilson took the lead on a pass from Josh Belinga to Quincy Barber. They tried for 2 and failed but a penalty on Woodland Hills gave them another chance and they converted.
Woodrow Wilson would add another touchdown to make the final score 20-7. Gurreri-Judson passed for 120 yards in the loss and Anthony Merideth had 54 yards on 13 carries.
Woodland Hills starts the WPIAL Regular Season next week when they travel to Bethel Park.
