A last minute touchdown by the Mustangs spoiled the Wildcats' early perfect season.
The taste of defeat is always bitter — especially when it comes in the final minute.
Unfortunately for Winter Park (2-1), that's exactly what happened when they fell in their first loss of the season to the Wekiva Mustangs (3-0) on Friday night in Apopka.
Despite leading 19-7 at the half — thanks in part to the hot slinging arm of quarterback Gino English and a turnover prone Wekiva offense — the Mustangs rallied in a frantic comeback that saw the home-side outscore the Wildcats 18-3 in the second half, which included a last minute touchdown to put the Mustangs up for good.
The Wildcats will look to bounce back from the tough loss next week (Sep. 14) when they host Colonial (0-2) at Showalter Field.
