Football: Wesley Chapel 48, Hudson 14

HUDSON — Wesley Chapel's first-year coach, Ben Alford, not only got his first victory of the season but for his career Friday in a convincing 48-14 win over Hudson.

The Wildcats used a three-headed monster of juniors Devin Piper, Dimon Bagwell and Davon Henry. The trio combined for 244 yards and seven touchdowns.

Touchdowns by Piper and Bagwell made it 21-7 in the first half, then the Wildcats blocked a punt that set up a 5-yard toss to Henry to give Wesley Chapel a 28-7 lead at halftime.

Piper was the first to score for Wesley Chapel, as he broke several tackles leading to a 30-yard touchdown run to make the score 7-0 in the first quarter.

Hudson answered on Owen Derksen's 10-yard touchdown to tie it at 7.

In the second half the Wildcats came out strong as Henry took a toss sweep 72 yards for the score. Piper scored his third touchdown on a 15-yard run to make it 41-7.

Bagwell added another score with a 3-yard burst, forcing a running clock. The Cobras added a TD late when junior Haden Moyer scored on a 52-yard run.
