Mays, Owen lead West-Oak past Walhalla, 17-14
Senior kicker Chandler Mays booted a 40-yard field goal as time expired to lift West-Oak past Walhalla 17-14 Friday night at Razorback Stadium. Mays’ kick came after the Warriors scored 14, unanswered, fourth-quarter points to capture their first win over the Razorbacks since 2010. Following a scoreless first quarter, Walhalla controlled the second quarter with drives that resulted in Israel Williamson scores, one a 9 yard rush, the other a 74-yard strike to Hunter Stephens. West-Oak would do all its scoring in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter on touchdown runs of 19 and 2 yards from Landon Owen. A blocked punt with :45 seconds to play would set the stage for Mays’ kick to win the game as the clock reached triple zero. Next week, the Warriors travel to Pendleton, while Walhalla will host Landrum in WGOG’s broadcast.
