Apalachee High School is still in search of its first win of 2013.
The Wildcats fell to Cedar Shoals Friday 35-6 as it was the Jaguars who posted their first win of the season in battle of 0-6 teams.
Cedar Shoals jumped out to a 21-0 first half lead before AHS scored on the final play of the first half on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Bryan Wilson to Jody Mathis. The extra point attempt failed leaving the score 21-6 at halftime.
The Jaguars (1-6, 1-4) put the game out of reach scoring on their first series of the second half capped on a 4-yard pass from Greg Smith to Cory Johnson.
A 1-yard run by Adrian Washington with 11:40 remaining sealed the deal for Cedar Shoals.
For AHS, the loss dropped the Wildcats to 0-7 overall and 0-5 in Region 8-AAAAA.
"There could have been some hangover from last week," said Apalachee coach Shane Davis, referring to a heartbreaking last-minute loss to Loganville. "Losses like that can shake your confidence. I'm a grown man and it shook my confidence."
Smith started the game's scoring on a 13-yard touchdown strike with 10:22 left in the opening quarter.
The advantage was pushed to two scores when Washington reached the end zone on a 4-yard run with 1:55 still left in the opening quarter. Cedar Shoals converted a fourth and one from the AHS 8-yard line before reaching the end zone on Washington's run.
AHS will travel to Salem High School in Conyers next week in another attempt at its first victory of the season.
