Abbeville's defensive lineman Kieran Shelvin (63) gets on of his many tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
It is been nine years since the Abbeville Wildcats won its season opener. But thanks to a stingy defense and a gutsy performance by fullback Dieon Williams, the Wildcats notched anbig win in their belt.
Abbeville opened the year with a 19-12 win over West St. Mary. Back in 2008, Abbeville also beat West St. Mary to open the season under then head coach Ward Courville.
