Gators fall in overtime

Published: Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 09:18 AM.

The Wewahitchka Gators football team had a lead and the ball in the fourth quarter and couldn’t hold on to either.

Cottondale (2-0) scored a late touchdown to tie the game and won it with a touchdown in the first overtime to secure a 22-14 win over Wewahitchka (0-2).

The Gators scored early on a 13 rushing touchdown from junior fullback Javar Hill and added a second-half touchdown to cement a 14-6 advantage after Hill broke a 46-yard touchdown run.

Peter Setterich converted after-point kicks following each Gator touchdown.

But the Hornets scored late in the fourth quarter and added a two-point conversion to knot the game during regular time and did the same in the first overtime for the win.

Wewahitchka had two touchdowns, one in the first half and another in the fourth quarter, called back on questionable holding penalties.

Hill finished with 128 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries and Rashard Ranie also eclipsed 100 yards with 14 carries for 112 yards.
