Pike Road def. Charles Henderson, 60-6

TROY – The Pike Road Patriots continued their march through 5A with a 60-6 win over Charles Henderson on the road. The win moves the Patriots to 6-0 on the season and 4-0 in the region. 

“They played hard, we made some mistakes early,” said Patrick Browning, coach of the Patriots. “But we challenged them to go out and get better and that’s what they did.”

Led by Iverson Hooks 233 all-purpose yards (116 rushing / 117 passing on five completions) the Patriots turned a 15-6 first quarter battle into a 50-6 at intermission. Hooks scored on a 72-yard touchdown run and then tossed a 75-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Rogers (2 receptions for 100 yards and a score and an 85-yard kickoff return house call). He also connected with Crinshon Crenshaw on a 10-yard touchdown pass. Crenshaw added a 48-yard punt return touchdown to the night’s tally. 

Quionshon Judkins ran the ball 9 times for 116 yards and 2 touchdowns. 

Over on the defensive side of things, Pike Road (since giving up 51 in the opener to McGill-Toolen) has held their six opponents to a combined 27 points and two shutouts. 

Mac Ceman stepped in front of a Trojans pass and turned it into points for the Patriots, returning it 35 yards for the touchdown. 

Brennan Jordan had 3 tackles and a sack and also pounced on a loose ball, recovering it for Pke Road. DJ Tolliver finished the night with an interception. 

Khurtis Perry became a fixture in the Trojans backfield, sacking the quarterback twice and forcing a fumble. 

The Patriots are home for their next three opponents: Headland (10/8), Greenville (10/22) and BT Washington (10/29) before settling in to host a playoff game starting in November. 

Sylacauga def. Elmore County, 42-24

SYLACAUGA — Maleek Pope once again proved himself to be a major talent in Sylacauga’s 42-24 win over Elmore County on Friday night.

The senior running back rushed for 245 yards and four touchdowns, marking the second straight game he has picked up at least 200 yards.

“Once again, I’m going to give all the credit to my offensive line,” Pope said. “They had a great game blocking. They were excellent.”

For the Aggies, this is their third win in a row. More importantly, this is their second win of the season.

Pope made his presence felt early in the first quarter. On the Aggies’ opening drive of the game, Pope rushed for 45 yards including a 16-yard run to the Elmore County 27 yard line.

On the ensuing play, Brayson Edwards found Q Swain who was able to haul in a one-handed catch in the back of the end zone for a touchdown to give the Aggies a 7-0 lead with 5:10 left in the first.

Pope rushed for 199 yards and three touchdowns in the first half.  Pope’s first score of the night came off an Elmore County fumble. The Panthers fumbled a kickoff return at their 26-yard line. It didn’t take Sylacauga long to capitalize off the turnover as Pope scored on a 24-yard run.

Pope added a pair of electrifying touchdown runs of 50 and 64 yards in the first half to help the Aggies take a 28-7 lead.

“Offensively, we felt like we had to get a body on  a body upfront and let Maleek Pope do what he does,” Sylacauga head coach Rob Carter said. “We don’t design the plays where he turns around in a circle and scores but we know that we have that type of athlete. Our linemen know that.” (Courtesy LaVontae Young | The Daily Home)



Macon East def. Jackson Academy, 28-12

CECIL–Friday was homecoming night at Macon-East Academy, but the first 12 minutes against Jackson Academy were less than festive.

The Knights pulled it together, dominating the final three quarters and knocking off the previously unbeaten Eagles.

Macon-East quarterback Deonte Powell threw for 171 yards and accounted for three touchdowns in the 28-12 win over AISA No. 7 Jackson Academy.

The Knights defense forced four turnovers and allowed just 176 total yards as Macon-East (4-3) recovered from a 12-0 deficit.

“We played like individuals in the first quarter,” Knights head coach Glynn Lott said. “We started playing together as a team after that and we started moving the ball. It’s a big win for us. We’ve lost a couple of games that we’d like to have back, so it was good to finish this one.

Those losses include one-point defeats at Valiant Cross and at Southwest Georgia, and Friday’s game was headed into the same direction.

The Eagles (5-1) got on the board after a 31-yard touchdown pass from Cameran Thomas to Dakota Baxter for a 6-0 lead. Jackson Academy added to its lead with a 2-yard run from Thomas following a Macon-East fumble.


Coosa Valley def. Cornerstone Christian, 34-6

CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – Coosa Valley added another win to their collection Friday night, knocking off Cornerstone Christian 34-6. Canaan Johnson led the Rebels offense, throwing for a quartet of touchdowns and then running the fifth one in himself. He also recorded 8 tackles and a sack on defense. 

Hunter Hill reeled in a 65-yard touchdown reception, then turned around and banged out 17 tackles and 2 sacks. 

Weston Dooley – though – was the leader on the defensive side of things with five tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. 

Montgomery Catholic def. Pike County, 63-0

MONTGOMERY – Montgomery Catholic muzzled the Pike County Bulldogs Friday night to remain undefeated on the season with dates against Childersburg, Trinity Presbyterian and Goshen remaining. 

“I think we played well tonight,” said Kirk Johnson, coach of the Knights. “It was good to see us open up the passing game and get a lot of people touches. Defensively, anytime you can keep them out of the end zone, it’s usually a good night.”

Catholic has only given up 13 points all season (Dadeville and Reeltown scored in lopsided affairs) and has pitched five shutouts. 

Caleb McCreary led the Knights offensively with 169 yards passing (7-of-9), throwing 5 touchdown passes. Jeremiah Cobb carried the ball 5 times for 113 yards and reeled in 2 of McCreary’s passes for 68 yards. 

KJ Washington finished the night with 5 tackles and 2 tackles for loss. TJ Dudley also had five tackles and three tackles for loss. Kylon Griffin had three tackles and a 46-yard punt return touchdown.

Trinity def. Reeltown, 17-14

It was a true defensive battle between Reeltown and Trinity in a Class 3A Region 4 football game on Friday night. Although the Rebels were the clear underdogs to the outside world, they set out to prove that physical, hard-nosed defense the Rebels are used to hasn’t gone anywhere. 

Despite the Wildcats averaging nearly 40 points per game prior to Friday’s game, Reeltown’s defense was clearly up to the task. However, so was Trinity’s. 

And it was Trinity’s offense that had the slight edge, stealing a 17-14 victory. 

“That’s the type of football we want to play,” Reeltown coach Matt Johnson said. “We faced a lot of adversity throughout the game and our guys just kept coming back. I’m extremely proud of how they fought. Hats off to Trinity; that is an extremely good football team over there. They are who they are for a reason, but it stinks because I feel like our guys played extremely well to come up a little short.” 



Edgewood def. Lakeside School, 39-34

STORRS FIELD – Lakeside scored 21 fourth-quarter points to bring a little added excitement to Friday’s homecoming festivities at Edgewood Academy. It was the Wildcats – however – who managed to hang on and run out the clock securing the 39-34 victory and avoiding a third straight loss. 

“It wasn’t a pretty one,” said Chad Michael, coach of the Wildcats. “But you’re going to play these games where the best things you can tell these kids is to go out and have fun. There are going to be times when it’s ugly and when it’s bad. But you’ve got to be able to have fun somewhere.”

The Wildcats (who finished the night with 320 yards of offense) had no problem playing with smiles after the first quarter, scoring twice to go up 13-0.

Childersburg def. Beulah, 41-21

BEULAH – The Beulah High Bobcats – with only one win on the season – proved that they could move the football Friday night in a near three-score loss to Childersburg. The Bobcats amassed 393 yards of offense; 350 of which came on the ground and accounted for two touchdowns. 

Noah Higdon had 127 all-purpose yards, throwing for 43 and running for 84. Jacori Tarver, though, had himself a night. The sophomore running back ran for 264 yards and 2 touchdowns in the loss. 

Demarion Foreman and TJ Washington combined to lead the Bobcat defense with 10 tackles and 3 assists. Foreman also recovered a fumble, broke up a pass and recorded a tackle for loss. Christopher Rudd added a blocked punt and a forced fumble to the stat sheet. 

The Bobcats have roadtrips to Reeltown and Goshen scheduled for the next two weeks. 

Autauga Academy def. Munroe (Florida), 21-12

CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – The Autauga Academy Generals made their second trip to the Sunshine State a worthwhile one, defeating the Munroe Bobcats 21-12 to remain unbeaten on the year. The loss was Munroe’s first on the season.
