The Page Patriots’ offense stayed hot against the winless Tullahoma Wildcats Friday.
The Patriots (4-2, 3-0) followed up a 45-point performance against Battle Ground Academy in Week 6 with a 59-30 dismantling of the Wildcats (0-7, 0-3) Friday.
Led by quarterback Jacob Van Landingham, Page hit early and often against the Wildcats. But, Tullahoma got back into the game with a big third quarter.
After leading by 14 at halftime, the Patriots allowed the Wildcats to tie the game at 24 after two-straight scores.
Page then led 31-30 late in the third quarter, and that’s when the Patriots took over. Van Landingham hit Daniel Callicoat for a 59-yard touchdown to go up 38-30 with 2:40 left in the third quarter. They then pulled away with 21-unanswered points in the fourth quarter to seal the game.
Van Landingham finished with 224 yards and two touchdowns on 12-of-15 passing. He also added 80 yards and another score on eight rushes and he was picked off once by the Tullahoma defense.
Bubba Johnson led the way on the ground for the Patriots with 90 yards on 16 carries and three touchdowns, and Callicoat spearheaded the receiving efforts with 121 yards and a touchdown on two catches.
With the win, Page stays atop the Region 4-4A standings alongside Marshall County (6-1, 3-0). The Patriots get the benefit of having a bye next week before traveling to Giles County on Oct. 14.
