The Pirate defense played as one team, forcing seven total turnovers against the Jaguars. Putnam City intercepted quarterback Jhames West five times, including a fourth-quarter pick that stopped any hope of a late Westmoore comeback.

“We knew we'd have to come out and play almost perfect football to beat them,” Wofford said. “Defensively, we played about as well as we could tonight.”

After Wofford released his team from his postgame speech, five players lingered to take photos with fans and parents. One of them was running back Javone Knox, who rushed for 40 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He said Putnam City is driven to make the playoffs.

“We're prepared,” Knox said. “We're determined.”
