The Wildcats use a high snap on field goal attempt to their benefit, and defeat Aggies 17-7 in Kick-Off Classic.

Early in the season, coaches expect mistakes.

It was no different Friday night for the Washington Wildcats.

Quarterback Joesph Franzone awaited the snap on a field goal attempt to give Washington the lead over Tate, but the snap went over his head.

Franzone would make something out of nothing, though, as he picked up the loose ball and took off toward the end zone, and eventually found it for the go ahead score for Washington.

Tate quarterback Edwin Richburg got the scoring started off, as he connected with wide receiver Trevor Fritz on a 47-yard touchdown pass to give Tate the 7-0 lead.

Washington took no time evening things up, as Franzone found wide receiver Xavier Brown for a 53-yard touchdown just four plays later, bringing the score to 7-7.

After Franzone put Washington up 14-7 on the high snap, the Wildcats put together another drive that ended in a field goal. The drive clinched the victory for the Wildcats, 17-7.

Washington moves on to open the season against West Florida, while Tate gets to do battle with Trent Richardson and Escambia.
