"Willy the Wildcat"........It was truly Willy Ivery's Show, during the second half of Friday night's performance
at Gerald Prim Stadium as he tied a school record for five touchdowns in a game, with his "kin folks,"
Barry Pryor of Birch Creek, in 1973, against Jefferson. From the "Wildcat" formation Ivery was
credited with almost 200 yards of offense in Friday night's game.
The game was tied 7-7 at the end of the first quarter, and tied 7-7 at the halftime intermission in what seemed to be a "lack-lustre" game in Gerald Prim Stadium, before a packed Homecoming Crowd. Then, Willy Ivery and crew came out of the dressing room for the second half and the "sparks" began to erupt! Operating from the "Wildcat" formation, Ivery led the Wildcats to a 42-19 victory to lift Homecoming spirits and tie a school record, set back in 1973, for most touchdowns in a game (tied with Barry Pryor, 1973).
Ivery had scored the lone touchdown during the first half, during the first quarter, and came back for three more TD's during the third period, and added another one during the fourth quarter. Buddy Ivery added another score mid-way during the 4th quarter.
