The Wildcats produced a staggering 533 total offensive yards against the Hurricanes. Starting quarterback Logan Watson went 15-of-19 for 261 yards and four passing touchdowns.

One of those scores was a 92-yard touchdown path in the second half to put the Wildcats up by 14 points. Coach Bob Sphire said that big throw was the momentum swing his team needed to finish on top.

Watson also had three carries for 11 yards and scored one of the three rushing touchdowns for Camden.

Jamie Felix led the way for the Wildcats in the rush attack which put up 272 yards. He had 29 carries for 174 yards and averaged six yards a carry. His counterpart Daryl Williams toted the rock 17 times for 81 yards, two touchdowns and averaged 4.8 yards a carry.

“It was a great win against a good football team who very well could win out the rest of their games,” Sphire said. “We got off the bus ready to play, and that’s important. Wren got a hot-hand in the second half, but I was proud of the way we were able to regain our composure and respond in the second half. The team made critical plays, and you’ve got to get those to win these kinds of games.”
