VC cruised to a 55-20 win over Centerville to improve to 5-0 with two games remaining in the regular season.

Abbeville Wildcats manhandle Crowley

Finally - things went the Abbeville Wildcats’ way.
Pre-Roderick Moy era, the Wildcats could never catch a break. If they fumbled, the ball never bounced their way. Somehow they would get a game-costing penalty at the wrong time.
But on Thursday in a road game against the Crowley Gents, everything lined up in Abbeville’s favor. The Wildcats could almost do no wrong.
Because of that, Abbeville spoiled Crowley’s homecoming with a 46-12 district win.
The win improved Abbeville to 2-2 and 1-1 in the district.
