Lovett scored with just over two minutes remaining to turn back Woodward Academy 21-14 at Martin E. Kilpatrick Stadium. The Lions, 1-0, got the winning score on a short pass from Willie Candler to Jack McGranahan, while standout running back Grant Haley scored Lovett’s other two touchdowns on the evening.

It doesn’t get much easier for coach Gerry Romberg’s Wildcats, who have made the six straight postseason appearances, as Westminster plays at St. Pius next weekend.
The Pace Academy Knights under first-year coach Chris Slade kickoff the 2013 season next Friday at Whitfield Academy. Meanwhile, North Atlanta takes on Stone Mountain at Grady Stadium on Aug. 30 in its season opener.
