HUDSON — Fivay hosted Wesley Chapel in a preseason game Friday, and the Wildcats made themselves at home with an 18-6 victory.
Fivay’s first drive was cut short when defensive back Mark Labarbera intercepted Eric Vitale’s pass at midfield. The Falcons defense answered back when Davion Sutton sacked Xavier Toro and forced a fumble to give the Falcons’ offense another try.
Sutton closed out the drive from 1 yard out to open the scoring . That would be the only offensive highlight by either team in the first half.
The second half belonged to the Wildcats. With just more than a minute to go in the third quarter, Jase Williams tied the score at 6 with a 1-yard run .
Fivay put in its junior varsity for the fourth quarter. Wesley Chapel capitalized on the opportunity by adding two more touchdowns. The first was by Jordan Thompson with a speedy run to the outside from 39 yards. Quarterback Austion Sessums hooked up with Kyle Brown from 37 yards out for the final score .
Fivay opens its regular season next week at Ridgewood . Wesley Chapel hosts Zephyrhills.
