Flomaton Advances To Quarterfinals With Win Over St. James

November 16, 2019

The Flomaton Hurricanes beat St. James 20-19 in a thriller Friday night to advance to the 3A quarterfinals.

The defending 3A station champion Hurricanes were down 19-6 before a fourth quarter rally and a game that came down to a two point conversion that was right on the money.

Jate’vius “Tank” Franklin  was into the endzone on a pass from Daquan “Money” Johnson with just 16 seconds to go in the ballgame to cut the St. James Trojan lead to just one, 19-18. Johnson was then in for two for the 20-19 win for the Canes.

Flomaton’s other scores came on a 1-yard touchdown run from Franklin in the first, and Johnson from six yards out.

Johnson had 162 rushing yards on 29 carries and the big touchdown pass to Franklin late in the fourth. Franklin had 17 carries for 92 yards.

Friday night marked 100th win for head coach Doug Vickery at Flomaton High School.

The Flomaton Hurricanes (11-1) will host T.R. Miller next Friday night.

    That was one of the ugliest lame duck passes I have ever seen.
    Johnson under such pressure and fighting to keep the play alive then suddenly Franklin was open……..

    What a game.

    Congratulations Canes !!!!
