The Tate Aggies dominated offensively Friday night with an impressive 35-26 district win over the Escambia Gators.

The Aggies had a total of 360 offensive yards Friday night while allowing the Gators just 32 yards in the first half of play.

Kevin Padgett picked up the first Aggie touchdown of the night at about the halfway point in the first quarter on a 7-yard dash. Then with 3:03 to go in the first half, Deauntay Johnson was in for another TD. A missed point after on both first quarter touchdwowns, and the Aggies were up 12-0.

After the Gators added six on a 2-yard run,  Petey Jones had an 11-yard run for a Tate TD. A good two point attempt on a  Quadarious Ford conversion, and the Aggies strengthened their lead to 20-6.

Edwin Richburg added a 12-yard run touchdown for the Aggies with 2:19 to go in the third, and Jones caught a 46-yard pass for another Aggie TD with 6:48 in the ballgame.

The Gators managed a few as well in the second half, with the Tate Aggies winning  35-26

    It was a very good game for Tate – up until the last half of the 4th quarter where Petey Jones started showboating and had 2 unsportsmanlike conduct / personal foul penalties. Otherwise Escambia never would have been close to getting their last touchdown.
    Tevin Padgett, Q Ford, Jamarian Bonner, Blake #8 (kicker) – all seem to be classy guys and they also excel at the game.
