Titans Top Wolverines in Overtime

T.C. Williams finishes season with four straight victories, but playoffs unlikely.

When the T.C. Williams football team entered West Potomac's stadium Friday night, it brought a sledge hammer, metaphorically promising the Wolverines a smackdown.

Although the Titans struggled to get on the offense in gear throughout the game, the Titans kept their promise and took home a 13-10 overtime win to finish their season with a four straight victories and a 5-5 overall record.

West Potomac quarterback Caleb Williams scored on a 50-yard touchdown run late in the first half to give the Wolverines (6-4 overall, 4-3 Patriot District) a 7-0 lead.

Following a West Potomac fumble late in the fourth quarter, Titans tailback Dealo Robertson scored on a 26-yard touchdown run to tie the game.

In overtime, West Potomac was unable to get to the end zone, but kicker Chris Blewitt kicked a 31-yard field goal to give the Wolverines a 10-7 edge.

The Titans (5-5, 4-3 Patriot District) would not be stymied, however, as senior quarterback Alec Grosser connected with wideout Landon Moss, who fought his way into the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown to give the Titans a 13-10 victory.

"Thank you to all the Fightin Titans that came out tonight. Love y'all man," Moss tweeted after the game

Titans head coach Dennis Randolph, who returned to the team this season after missing most of last year to treat a cancer diagnosis, praised the team's defense on the night.

He said it would be a long shot for the Titans to get into the playoffs despite their strong finish to the season. Playoff berths are determined by a power-point system and the Titans were on the outside entering Friday night's contest.
