The Paulding County Patriots improved to 2-4 (2-2) as they traveled south to Villa Rica 5-2(3-2) and upset the Wildcats on their homecoming game. The victory was a critical one for the Patriots as they needed a win in order to keep the hopes of a playoff birth within their grasps. The Wildcats relied on their strong ground attack and the Patriots countered by doing most of their damage through the air.
The Patriots took a 24-14 lead into the half but saw the Wildcats battle back in the 2nd half to tie the game with 5 minutes remaining with a 35 yard field goal. Brantley Mauldin then guided the Patriots down the field on an 89 yard drive that ate up most of the remaining time before Smael Mondon dashed in from 6 yards out to give the Patriots the lead for good. The defense held Villa Rica on downs to win the game.
