Leading rusher, Collin Moon, had 68 yards on 11 carries. David Hall had 54 yards on 12 carries. Taveris Hill and Brody Pinyan both played quarterback. Hill ended the game four for five with 54 yards and a touchdown and Pinyan was seven for ten with 65 yards and three touchdowns. Jaden Kent had 55 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Brandon Howard had 42 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

The defense was led by Beau Ragsdale and Andrew McAlpine, who had ten tackles each, and Kavan Hill, who recovered two fumbles. Ragsdale also helped keep the Wildcats on their own side of the field, punting three times for an average of 31.33 yards.

The Redskins host Cleburne County this Friday and the Wildcats host Lawrence County.
