As Wilmington headed into halftime trailing 7-0, the skies opened up and a swirling wind surrounding Alumni Stadium. The sun was out by the time the Wildcats emerged from the locker room, but it was a stormy second half for the locals against Wakefield.
The visiting Warriors took the football on the opening kick off of the third quarter, scored five plays later and never look back as they pounded home 28 points in the final 22 minutes of play and earned a 35-7 win.
Trailing 14-0, Matt Ferreira looked to snag momentum as he took a quarterback sneak and carried players from both teams for about 10 yards on fourth down with 5:58 left in the third quarter. But Wakefield intercepted a Ferreira pass on the next play and went on to score to snag a 21-0 edge.
Ferreira redeemed himself just over two minutes later when he lofted a touchdown pass 28 yards to a waiting with 39 seconds left in the frame.
But it was too little, too late, and the Wilmington defense had no answer for a well-rounded Wakefield attack.
