After giving up 35 points to Kimball High School in the season opener, the Woodrow Wilson football squad knew the defense had to improve. The team responded accordingly against Fort Worth Eastern Hills, limiting the Highlanders to just 79 total yards in a 26-3 blowout on Friday, September 7.

Aside from the stellar defense, quarterback Sam Keeter and wide receiver Colin Spencer provided all the fireworks for the game. Keeter tossed two interceptions and only completed eight out of 18 passes to his receivers but still managed to rack up 176 passing yards and two touchdowns. Spencer caught only a single pass, but it was for 84 yards and a touchdown.

The Wildcats defense was furious and relentless, constantly harassing FW Eastern Hills quarterback Decorien Myers and forcing turnovers left and right. The squad had one interception and forced eight fumbles, recovering six of them. The only HIghlander to have a good game was running back Marcus Baisy, who had 22 rushes for 109 yards.

Woodrow Wilson will look to build on the momentum of their first win of the season when they travel to play The Colony on Friday, September 14. Kick-off for that game will be 7:30 p.m.
