Cleveland upsets Tarrant

Meek gets past Southeastern

For one half, the visiting Meek Tigers had all they could handle with Southeastern. Unfortunately, the bigger (and deeper) visitors took over in the second half and rolled to a 44-13 victory. The Southeastern defense did all it could do, especially in the first half as the Tigers struggled to get anything going against a Mustang front that bottled up […]

Hornets handle Hanceville

Locust Fork took awhile to get going but the homecoming crowd left happy in the end as the Hornets dominated the second half and rolled to a 48-24 victory over Hanceville. Hanceville led 6-0 after one quarter and the Hornet lead was just 14-12 at the half but the second half was all Locust Fork as the hosts outscored the […]

Saks rolls over Oneonta

The Saks Wildcats held Oneonta to negative rushing yards and cruised to a 30-0 victory over the visiting Redskins last Friday night. The Wildcats came into the game ranked No. 10 in Class 4A and that’s probably underselling how strong they really are. Oneonta battled the Wildcats and kept the home team within striking distance until a late score. Saks […]
