By Jeff Hart Staff
WASHINGTON -Ė Washington-Wilkes pounded out 379 yards rushing and held Rabun County to 40 points below its season average in a 52-7 win over the Wildcats Friday night in a key Region 8-AA battle for both teams.
The Class AA fourth-ranked Tigers (7-0, 5-0 Region 8-AA) needed a win to solidify their place atop the region standings. Rabun County (5-2, 3-2) needed a win to keep its region title aspirations alive.
The Tigers used a 20-point second quarter to blow open a close game. The final two touchdowns of the half came in the final 22 seconds as they took advantage of one of the four Rabun County turnovers.
Washington-Wilkes put the game away in the second half outscoring the Wildcats 26-0 to run away with the victory.
Itís doesnít get any easier for Rabun County. The Wildcats will travel to Union County next week for another crucial Region 8-AA matchup.
