The Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School football season came to a close last Friday with an exciting 49-34 loss to West Gadsden.

After battling to a 12-7 lead after the first quarter the Gators (2-8) saw the Panthers push across 28-straight points as the teams entered the final period.

But Wewahitchka made those last 12 minutes count, scoring three touchdowns to pull to 49-34 before the clock ran out on the comeback.

“It was a really exciting game,” said Wewahitchka assistant Taylor Smith. “It was a real encouraging game because after we fell into a deep hole the team really fought back.

“We don’t have a lot of seniors graduating so this was a good effort to go into next season.”

Junior quarterback Rashard Ranie accounted for 339 total yards of offense, rushing 31 times for 209 yards and two touchdowns and completing 5 of 10 passing for 130 yards.

Jarvar Hill rushed for 96 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries.
