Whale Branch suffered its first loss of the season with a heartbreaking 37-36 overtime defeat Friday at Woodland.

The Wolverines tied it with a 19-yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, and the Warriors missed a game-winning field goal try at the end of regulation.

Jadon Grant’s third touchdown run of the game gave the Warriors a 36-30 lead in overtime, but they failed to convert the PAT, and Woodland answered with a touchdown and extra point for the win.

Grant rushed for 105 yards on 21 carries with three touchdowns, while De’Arius Hazel added 127 yards and a TD on 12 carries, and Jaylen Reeves contributed 116 yards and a TD on 17 attempts. JacQuez Frazier led the defense with 12 tackles.

The Warriors (4-1, 0-1 Region 5-2A) return home to face No. 2 Barnwell in a region matchup Friday.
