Wheeler put the ball down to the 12-yard line. Artavious Williams and Marsh combined on two runs to put Toombs at the 3-yard line, and then Tank Morris went over the pile for a Toombs Touchdown. Morales added the extra point for a 14-0 lead with nine minutes left in the third.
Toombs appeared to have a bad break as they muffed a punt, and Wheeler dropped on it at the TCHS 9-yard line. But a bad snap moved them to the 23-yard line and a penalty moved them out to the 37-yard line. Wheeler then went for a pass and Hayward came up with an interception with 4:33 left in the third quarter.
Toombs couldn’t get any points out of that drive, but later in the third Hayward picked off another pass and this time set up Toombs at the Wheeler 9-yard line. Toombs went on to punch it in for another touchdown and with the extra point was on top 21-0.
Neither team could find the end zone in the fourth quarter as Toombs took the win over Wheeler 21-0.
Marsh and Gavin Hall combined for 120 passing yards on the night. Toombs also had 181 yards on the ground.
