Hayden holds off Fairview

The Hayden Wildcats played host to the Fairview Aggies Friday night for homecoming and came away with a 50- 40 win to move to 7-1 on the year. The last time Hayden was as good as 7-1 after 8 games was 1992. Forty seconds into the game the Wildcats scored on a 66-yard run by senior running back Leonard Johnson, […]

Talladega rolls Appalachian

The Talladega Central Tigers made quick work of visiting Appalachian, jumping out to a big lead early and never looking back in a 52-13 blitzing of the Eagles. The Appalachian offense put up decent numbers – 225 total yards – but the Eagle defense had all kinds of trouble slowing down the Tiger offense. Trey Calvert again led the Eagles […]

End of the road for some, opportunity for others


This week marks the end of the regular season for Appalachian and Locust Fork – and for the Eagles it’s the end of football for 2016. Locust Fork has a huge date with Fultondale this week and could win the 3A Region 6 title – or probably fall to No. 3 in the region with a loss. The playoffs are […]

Tarrant upsets Cleveland

The Cleveland Panthers had more yards and fewer turnovers and penalties but the big-play offense of Tarrant proved to be the difference in a 21-20 overtime victory last Friday night at Fultondale.

It wasn’t easy but the visiting Locust Fork Hornets set up a region championship game with a 49-35 win over Hanceville last Friday night. The Hornets built a 13-6 lead after one quarter and a 27-14 lead at the half but the pesky Bulldogs just would not go away. While the Hornet offense had its way with the Bulldog defense, […]

The game was close in the first half – Meek led 22-13 after two quarters – but the Tiger running game wore down the Mustang defense in the second half in what turned […]
