Football: Mitchell 14, Wesley Chapel 11

WESLEY CHAPEL — Wesley Chapel and Mitchell had a hard time finding their offense in the first half Friday but the Mustangs hung on to win 14-11.

The Mustangs (4-1) led just 3-0 at halftime on a 22-yard field goal by Codi Folsom.

Wesley Chapel eventually turned on its offense with a 77-yard rush from Devin Piper in the third quarter. The Wildcats tied the game at 3 with a 28-yard field goal by Cody Hodgins.

Mitchell responded on the ensuing drive as Dustin Rodgers took a handoff 48 yards for the touchdown. With a botched extra-point attempt, Matthew Michaels ran it in for a two-point conversion and an 11-3 lead.

Penalties on the Wildcats for unsportsmanlike conduct, assessed on the kickoff, gave the Mustangs an advantage and they recovered an onside kick. Folsom kicked a 42-yard field goal to put them up 14-3.

Wesley Chapel answered with a 39-yard touchdown from Alex McGough to Davon Henry. Piper added the two-point conversion and the Wildcats (2-3) were within three. Wesley Chapel executed a perfect onside kick and McGough had the Wildcats in field goal range. With less than a minute to play, the Mustangs blocked a 22-yard field goal attempt.
