DUBLIN -- In a well-played, turnover-free game between both squads, it was the Dougherty Valley rushing game that had the final say, accounting for the Wildcat's entire offense in a 34-27 victory over Dublin.

With the game tied at 27-27, Michael Pangelinan capped a 10-play, 51-yard drive, scoring his fourth touchdown of the night on a 4-yard run with just 56 seconds left to give Dougherty Valley the win.

Pangelinan (77 yards), Olanrewaju Adelekan (122 yards) and Julian Williams (154 yards) combined for 353 yards in a Wildcats offense that attempted only three passes on the night.

Pangelinan's third score of the night had given Dougherty Valley a 27-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but Dublin put together a 10-play, 66-yard drive that saw Darrell Millinder score from a yard out to tie the game with just 4:32 left.

The Gaels had also rallied to tie the game at 20-20 behind an 87-yard run by E.J. Cross for the third quarter's only score.

The Wildcats built a 17-6 lead behind Pangelinan's first two trips to the end zone and Kinean Weekes' 42-yard field goal. Weekes would also hit a 28-yard field goal later in the game.

Cross led Dublin with 181 yards rushing, while quarterback Josh Nobida passed for 112 yards on the night.
