UWF Defense Grounds Hawks

October 23, 2016

A week after recording school records for total offense and scoring, the UWF defense put on a show by limiting Shorter to just 98 total yards in a 36-0 victory on Homecoming Saturday at Blue Wahoos Stadium.

With the offense struggling to get into a rhythm in the early going, the defense was as strong as it has been all season, forcing the visitors into four 3-and-out offensive series’, two turnovers on downs and an interception in the first 30 minutes. The second half saw more of the same with six punts and another interception.

UWF (5-3, 3-2 Gulf South) sacked two Shorter quarterbacks five times and pressured them into hurried throws on numerous occasions. Shorter (0-7, 0-5) was held to 98 yards of total offense – its third lowest total this season and it fewest since the third game of the year. The Hawks were shutout for the fourth time in 2016.

UWF held a 10-0 lead at the half before turning things up on offense after the intermission. The Argos used long scoring plays to stretch the lead to 23-0 near the end of the third quarter. Kaleb Nobles found Caleb Robinson on for a 42-yard touchdown before Kevin Grant outran the Shorter defense on a 56-yard strike.

The Argonauts had one of their strongest rushing attacks of the season, finishing with 143 yards on 36 attempts. The final two scores of the game came on the ground when Chris Schwarz reached paydirt from 20 yards out and Tim Bellinger closed out the scoring with a 15-yard run in the closing minutes. Schwarz finished with 32 yards and Bellinger had 38.

Daviante Sales led five Argo backs with 44 yards on 14 carries. No other tailback carried the ball more than five times in a balanced offense.

Nobles threw for 324 yards on 30-for-50 passing with three touchdowns and 19 yards rushing. On offense, UWF totaled 470 yards on 87 plays – one snap shy of a season high.

John Williamson led the UWF defense with six tackles, two sacks, another stop behind the line of scrimmage and a quarterback hurry.

UWF will be back in action next Saturday, Oct. 29 when it plays host to West Alabama (5-3, 5-1)

Northview Battles To 12-10 Win Over 4A Walton

October 22, 2016

The 1A Northview Chiefs beat the 4A Walton Braves 12-10 during Senior Night at Tommy Weaver Memorial Stadium in Bratt.

“It was a great game, two great football teams out here to battle tonight,” Northview Head Coach Derek Marshman said. “It was a battle in every sense of the word — two football teams that did not want to give up or give in. Both teams fought to the very end. It was everything that high school football is made of.”

Northview took a 6-0 lead with 5:47 to go in the first quarter on a 60-yard quarterback keeper from senior Luke Ward.  Walton added a touchdown and field goal to take a 10-6 lead with 9:39 remaining in the half.

Then with 8:56 remaining in the fourth quarter, Ward found Hunter Edwards for a 9-yard touchdown (pictured top) go ahead touchdown.

Several Chiefs stepped up on the way to win, Marshman said, including Micheal “MJ” Jones.

“MJ Jones played his tail off.  He played a great football game on both sides of the ball. He played a great game defensively all night long…you put him on offense, he makes key blocks, key catches. Linebacker Ohijie Elliot made a great play to force a fumble and a sack to secure the game. Luke Ward played great. And a guy that’s really stepped out on top is senior running back Hunter Edwards…he’s going to run through guys, not run around guys,” he said.

Next week, the Chiefs (6-3, 1-0) will travel to Baker (8-0, 1-0) in a game that will decide the district championship. Both teams are in the 1A playoffs; the winner will have a home stadium advantage while the loser will hit the road in two weeks.

“We have a lot of momentum going into Baker. This was a big win for us tonight, to go undefeated at home and to win on senior night.,” Marshman said. “Next week is what is boils down to. But win, lose or draw, we going to go at it and go on.”

Tate Beats Choctaw 63-42

October 22, 2016

In a 105 total point game, Tate beat the Choctawhatchee Indians Friday night in Cantonment 63-42 for an Aggies Senior Night win.

Choctaw jumped out to a 7-0 lead at Pete Gindl Stadium just over a minute into the first quarter. A Jake Henry quarterback keeper touchdown run across midfield tied things up 7-7 at the 9:23 mark.  Then Henry found Corey Moorer for an Aggie touchdown, Tate on Top 14-7 with 5:57 in the first.

Choctaw then pulled ahead 21-14 with touchdowns late in the first and early in the second.  Henry tied things up with a keeper and 67-year touchdown run at 7:35 in the second quarter, 21-21.

Tate went ahead 28-21 with 2:33 on the clock in the half when Henry found Ladarryl Page on a 6-yard touchdown pass.  Tate expanded their lead to 34-21 when Henry completed a 3-yard pass to Rodriquez Smith for a touchdown with seven seconds in the half, 35-21 as the Showband of the South took to the field.

In the third, Henry was in again on a 70-yard run. With a good kick from Evan Legassey, Tate was up 42-21. The Aggies kept rolling with a 10 yard pass from Henry to Moorer for another TD, 48-21. After a Choctaw touchdown, Tate was up 56-28 on a 12-yard rushing touchdown from Paige with 2:21 to go in the third quarter.

The Indians scored touchdowns at the 10:23 and 3:22 marks in the fourth quarter.

The Aggies sealed the win with 3:22 to go in the game when Henry rushed five yards for a touchdown. Legassey’s kick was good for Friday night’s final, 63-42.

The Tate Aggies (7-2, 1-1) will travel to Pine Forest next Friday night for their final game of the regular season. A playoff spot is on the line in the game…both teams have lost this season for first place Escambia, so a win locks in the district runner-up spot.

October 16, 2016

Landon Hawthorne is like many 10-year old boys — he has love of football and a determination to play.

The Bratt Elementary student was born with ataxic cerebral palsy, but that does not stop his love for the game.  Landon plays for the Flomaton Hurricanes, and he recently ran the ball against Jay and Brewton as they faced off with Flomaton. Saturday, Flomaton visited the Cantonment Cowboys, who allowed Landon his biggest play ever.

After his teammates helped him onto the field, Landon ran the ball down field and across the goal line for a touchdown…both teams cheering as he celebrated in the end zone. photos by Kristi Barbour, click to enlarge.
