FVSU Wildcats hope to learn from season opener

FORT VALLEY, Georgia -- Fort Valley State football head coach Kevin Porter said there was a clear difference in his team’s first half Sunday at Miles and what took place in the second half — experience.

The Wildcats jumped out to an 18-point lead at halftime before Miles showed its championship resolve in the second half to pull out a 34-21 win. Fort Valley State didn’t score in the second half after jumping on top of the defending SIAC champion Golden Bears in the first half, while Miles scored 31 second-half points.

“I think our kids, they came out and played at a high level in the first half and probably played at the same level in the second half,” Porter said of his first game as the Wildcats’ head coach. “But Miles is, obviously, the conference champ and has a championship pedigree. And it showed, and their experience showed in the second half of the ballgame.”
