Homecoming: Wildcat Victory
The Wildcats exacted their revenge over the Western Oregon Wolves in the nail-biting Homecoming game last Saturday. Central had previously fallen to the Wolves earlier this season.
With 4,827 fans in the stands, the Wildcats would lead most of the game, until a late push by the Wolves tied the game at 17 points. Mid-way through the fourth quarter sophomore quarterback Jake Nelson connected with sophomore wide receiver Jesse Zalk to give the Wildcats a 24-17 lead. Three minutes later the Wolves would respond with a 39 yard field goal.
The Wolves were unable to score again and the Wildcats bested Western Oregon by a score of 24-20.
