Moultrie, Ga. saw another classic matchup in Region 5A between the Valdosta Wildcats and Colquitt County Packers Friday night.

The last time the Packers and Wildcats met up in Moultrie, both teams combined for 80 points scored. Friday night, the 'Cats & Hogs gave fans another treat.

Valdosta edged Colquitt County 36-29.

Packers scored first when Tevin Jones crossed the goal line on a first quarter scamper.

Rush Propst's boys kept momentum on the ensuing kickoff after Valdosta fumbled on the return. But a Packers field goal attempt was later blocked by Valdosta.

Rance Gillespie's Wildcats marched down the field and converted on a 4th & 2 when Ryan Whildon hit Malcolm Mitchell on a slant pass and Mitchell sprinted 50 yards for Valdosta's first score of the game.

Moment's later, tight end Jay Rome caught a pass from Whildon and rumbled into the endzone himself.
