Flomaton Hurricanes Advance To 3A State Championship Game

November 30, 2018

Somebody needs to tell the National Weather Service that hurricane season is not over. The Flomaton Hurricanes area headed to state.

The Canes defeated Providence Christian of Dothan 34-33 Friday night in Flomaton.

It was the first time in the 94-year history of Flomaton football that the Hurricanes had appeared in state semifinal game. And now for the first time ever, the Flomaton Hurricanes advance to the 3A state championship game Thursday at 11 a.m. in Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium. They Hurricanes (11-3) will take on Piedmont (12-2).

A record crowd packed into Flomaton’s stadium to see the historic game, and oh what a game it was.

And all came down to the last 2.5 seconds of play. The Hurricanes were up 34-33, and the Eagles were ready for the win with a 27-yard field goal attempt. But Flomaton blocked the kick for the dramatic win as the horn sounded.

Flomaton was down 33-26 about halfway through the fourth quarter. Daquan Johnson found Da’Shun Odom with a long touchdown pass with 5:30 to go. With a two-point conversion into the endzone, the Hurricanes were up by one.

    Single handedly the greatest football game I have ever witnessed at any level. So proud of our players & coaches; gutsy doesn’t even begin to describe how this team fought and played tonight. Total team effort, just can’t say enough. This is the night that the town of Flomaton has been waiting 94 years to to see, and I am glad that I was there to be a part of it! Never been prouder to be a Flomaton Hurricane.

    Great game and great kids. They don’t quit. A rare thing now days.

    This game was an amazing experience. I hugged several people, couldn’t even tell you their names. Dashun, the best I’ve ever seen around this area, big plays don’t even begin to describe him. If you’ve ever seen him play, I know this is hard to believe, but he’s an even better person! Congrations to The Vickery’s, tremendous people! Go CANES!!!!
