After watching Woodland and Villa Rica run up and down the field against each other Friday night, it was hard to imagine that this was the same Villa Rica team that had totaled a meager 37 points in four games and a Woodland team that produced just 43 points in five games on the season. But when the high-scoring affair finally ended, Villa Rica resembled an offensive juggernaut while Woodland proved it could indeed “finish the job” on offense. The two teams combined for 85 points with Villa Rica prevailing in the end, 50-35.

“It was a track meet out there tonight,” said Villa Rica coach Mike Falleur after congratulating Woodland’s coaching staff at midfield. “Nobody could stop each other. We were very fortunate to win it.”

The track meet that Falleur referred to started at 5:49 of the first quarter and did not end until 4:10 of the fourth quarter.

In the first quarter alone, the two teams combined for 28 points in a span of 1:59.

Woodland’s Quadre Allen started the scoring outburst at 5:49 with his 3-yard touchdown run, which was quickly followed by a 1-yard touchdown run by Villa Rica’s Quantavious Cousin.

Allen then dashed 100 yards in 12 seconds after gathering in the football at the goal line on the ensuing kickoff. It was 13-8 Woodland at 3:59. It was 3:48 when Villa Rica’s Maurice McGuire gave Villa Rica a 15-13 lead on his 65-yard kickoff return.
