Hanger, No. 6 Bulldogs rule rematch with Wildcats

Hanger, No. 6 Bulldogs rule rematch with Wildcats

November 7th, 2013 in News

Cory Hanger allowed the Montgomery County Wildcats an entire 13 seconds to bask in their only lead of the night.

Montgomery County profited from a South Callaway turnover on the game's opening possession in Wednesday night's Class 2, District 6 semifinal matchup against the state-ranked Bulldogs. The Wildcats grabbed a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior running back Jackson Bishop on fourth down with 3 minutes, 22 seconds left in the first quarter.

On the ensuing kickoff, Hanger - the Bulldogs' dynamic junior tailback - scooped the ball out of the muck in the middle of the field, darted through an opening and raced 85 yards for a touchdown. Junior kicker Caleb Sconce added the extra point to tie the game at the 3:09 mark.

Hanger then proceeded to harass Montgomery County with a dizzying array of moves, breaking out for four more touchdowns - three coming on runs - as second-seeded South Callaway pulled away in a dominating second half for a 42-7 romp over the third-seeded Wildcats.
