Southwestern Randolph and Wheatmore took part in a thrilling matchup tonight that was decided in the last moments of the game. Both teams have high powered offenses that are able to move the ball at will.
The Warriors struck first as Chandler Lambeth carried the ball up the middle from 15 yards out to put 6 points on the board. The Cougars then countered with a 40 yard run by Rae Hoskie to tie it up at 6 points each.
Southwestern Randolph made a big play on the next series as the defense came up with an interception that led to a score by Joey Evans when he ran the ball in from 3 yards out. Rae Hoskie converted the 2-point conversion to give the Cougars a 14-6 lead at the end of the 1st quarter.
Wheatmore put together an impressive drive early in the 2nd quarter when Paul Walker passed to Wyatt Rains for a 45 yard touchdown. Walker found Rains again on the 2-point conversion to tie the game up at 14 with 9:00 left in the 2nd quarter. The Cougars marched down the field on the next possession and punched the ball in as Hoskie carried the ball up the middle and grabbed a 20-14 lead.
The Warriors countered the Cougar score with a long kickoff return by Rains and a 40 yard touchdown pass from Walker to Steven Allorado. Chandler Lambeth ran in the 2-point conversion to give Wheatmore a 22-20 lead with 5 minutes left in the first half.
The offensive shootout continued when quarterback Landon Davis connected with Eli Clapp from 15 yards out. Hoskie ran the ball up the middle to add 2 more points to increase their lead to 28-22 with 2 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. Wheatmore countered with yet another score when Walker completed a pass to Allorado who then pitched the ball back to Rains as he was being taken down. Rains then carried the ball in for a touchdown to tie up the game. The Warriors converted the 2-point conversion to take a 30-28 advantage into the half.
Wheatmore’s defense started out the half holding the Cougars to a 3 and out and giving their offense an opportunity to increase their lead. The Warriors drove down the field with a couple passé from Walker to Rains. Rains scored his second touchdown of the night with an unbelievable one-handed grab. Chandler Lambeth converted the 2-point conversion to give Wheatmore the biggest lead of the game with 7 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Southwestern Randolph’s offense responded with a 5 minute drive capped off by a touchdown run by Evans and then converted the 2-point conversion.
The intensity picked up at the beginning of the 4th quarter and the Southwestern Randolph fans began to get rowdy when they disagreed with the calls by the officials. The noise they created caused the Warriors to commit back to back false start penalties. The Warriors were backed up and faced a 3rd down and long when Walker came through with a clutch pass to Allorado who fought his way into the end zone to give Wheatmore a 44-36 lead with 11:07 remaining in the game.
The Cougars then tied up the game with a run by #38 and Hoskie converted the 2-point conversion. The Southwestern Randolph defense answered the call and made a stop at a pivotal moment and gave the ball back to their offense. Hoskie added another touchdown to give the Cougars a 50-44 lead. Evans converted another 2-point conversion. The Southwestern Randolph defense came up with a stop and defeated the Warriors by the score of 52-44.
This game was full of action and obviously a lot of offense. The Wheatmore passing game was superb all night long and the run game for Southwestern Randolph was very tough to stop.
Southwestern Randolph will host Southern Guilford next week, and Wheatmore will travel to Carver.

WHILE BOTH TEAMS PLAYED PLAYED A GREAT GAME OFFENSELY THERE WAS ALOT OF DIRTY PLAY ON THE BEHALF OF SWR`S DEFENCE, GETTING 4 CALLS ON LATE HITS ON THE QUARTERBACK AND SEVERAL CASES OF PLAYERS CONTINUING TO HIT AFTER THE PLAY WAS WHISTLED DEAD. THE FANS OF SWR AT THE END OF THE GAME I GUESS TO SHOW THEIR FRUSTRATION WITH 1 OR 2 CALLS THAT DIDN`T GO THEIR WAY DECIDED TO THROW TRASH ONTO THE FIELD WHICH IS VERY LOW CLASS AND PERFECT EXAMPLES OF WHAT`S GOING WRONG WITH THE GAME TODAY. ANYWAY CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH TEAMS FOR A GREAT OFFENSIVE DISPLAY AND WE WILL NO DOUBT KICK COUGAR BUTT NEXT YEAR.
If you wanna talk about dirty maybe you should tell your players to keep there mouth shut next time.
First of all we didn't throw trash on your field we threw our own little footballs back on the track which were picked up before we left.
Second of all we beat yall fair and square considering the ref did everything they could to just hand the game to the warriors.
well ill be honest swr was one of the dirtier teams to play! blocking in the back, hitting after the whistle, i mean you name it it was there and it wouldnt supprise me them throwing stuff cause they were mad
THE COMMENTS MADE BY THE 2 SWR GOOBERS LEAD ME TO WONDER IF THEY WERE EVEN AT THE GAME. WHEATMORE RECEIVED ALMOST 150YARDS IN PEANALTIES WHICH DIRECTLY RESULTED IN SWR GETTING THE BALL BACK TO COME BACK AND WIN THE GAME, SO I DON`T KNOW HOW THATS HANDING US THE GAME AS YOU SAID. SECONDLY AS A BOOSTER CLUB MEMBER AND A VOLUNTEER IN THE CLEAN-UP AFTER THE GAME I CAN 100% GARANTEE THAT SOME OF YOUR FANS WERE THROWING TRASH ONTO THE TRACK AND THAT WAS LATER CONFIRMED BY THE FACT THAT WE HAVE VIDEO OF THEM DOING IT. LASTLY TO THE MOROON WHO SAID SOMETHING ABOUT OUR PLAYERS KEEPING THIER MOUTHS SHUT: A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TRASH TALKING IS GOING TO HAPPEN YOU EITHER HAVE NEVER PLAYED FOOTBALL OR YOUR JUST STUPID. ITS WHEN YOU TAKE TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND START WITH THE DIRTY PLAY AND THE LATE HITS THATS WHAT CAN CAUSE SITUATIONS TO GET OUT OF HAND. ANYWAY WE`LL SEE NEXT YEAR IF YOU CAN PULL THAT HORSESHOE OUT ONCE AGAIN AND LEAVE WHEATMORE WITH A WIN, I KNOW YOU WON`T.
