(WBTV) - Wingate built a 16-0 halftime lead and made it stick, taking a 16-12 South Atlantic Conference victory over visiting Tusculum Saturday at Irwin Belk Stadium and John R. Martin Field.
With its sixth-straight victory, Wingate clinches second place in the final SAC regular season standings.
Tusculum completes its season 5-5 overall and 4-3 in the SAC.
“We are very proud of our seniors and the great leadership they provided all year. The defense came up big all game. The 10 points off turnovers were the difference,” Wingate head coach Joe Reich said.
