ROSWELL, Ga. – Roswell rallied from a 14-0 halftime deficit last Friday night at home against Wheeler, but the Wildcats kicked a game-winning 49-yard field goal with about two minutes to play to edge the Hornets 17-14.

For the second straight week, Roswell struggled offensively in the first half, finally scoring in the third period following a Wheeler turnover.

Tailback Andrew Kwateng, who carried 30 times for 112 yards, scored on a 2-yard run to pull the Hornets within 14-7.

Roswell tied the game early in the fourth quarter on an 11-yard pass from backup quarterback Matt Cory to John Albert. Cory was in for one play to replace Ryan Monty, who went out with a minor injury before returning to the game.

The Hornets had a chance to take the lead later in the period, but were penalized for a block in the back on an interception return by Grant Beidel inside the Wheeler 5.

Roswell failed to score, and the Wildcats took the lead on the late field goal, getting into scoring position on a double pass, their third big play of the game offensively.

The Hornets fall to 0-3 in Region 5-AAAAAA and 1-5 overall. Wheeler is 1-2 and 4-2. Roswell is off this week, playing next Friday at Woodstock.
