Wildcats win defensive battle on late TD and game-sealing pick [VIDEO]

The Wildcats and Indians came together for a top-10 matchup in which both teams were well-known for their high-flying offenses. The #2-ranked Rabun County squad won a 14-7 game that featured all of two touchdowns by the teams combined. It was Keegan Stover’s go-ahead score late in the third and subsequent two-point conversion that got Rabun in the lead after trailing 7-6. Jaden Gibson sealed the win with an interception with about a minute to go on a deep heave by Ben Stowe.

Rabun County was stalled several times on penalties and dropped passes, but notched an early field goal by Marcus Remillard to make it 3-0. Early in the second quarter, Javin Gordon pounded out yardage to get #9-ranked Stephens close to the goal line. TJ Everett found pay dirt to put the Indians up 7-3.

The Wildcats eventually got in the red zone before the half ended, and settled for another Remillard 3-pointer to make it a 7-6 game in favor of the visitors. Late in the third quarter, Stover ran for a 7-yd TD, and then found Noah Legault for a 2-point conversion to take a 14-7 lead.

Neither team got much going offensively in the fourth, and Stephens got the ball back for one last drive. Stowe heaved a deep pass intended for Cam Lacy, but Gibson was there to haul it in. The Wildcats ran out the clock to seal the win. Rabun County is now 2-0 on the season, and Stephens is 1-1.
