West Georgia 44, Catawba 13: After a tight first half, the Wolves (1-0) won the adjustment battle and scored 28 consecutive points in the second half to defeat the Indians (0-1). West Georgia senior quarterback Dallas Dickey was nearly perfect, completing 15 of 17 pass attempts for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Wolves running back Aares McCall gained 107 rushing yards on 11 carries.
The offensive production from the two schools couldn’t have been more lopsided. West Georgia threw for 216 yards compared with the Indians’ 48. Catawba was three yards shy of 100 yards rushing, but that was nowhere close to the 167 yards UWG gained.
