Bradwell Institute fell at home 13-6 while hosting Calvary Day Friday night. Liberty County High School shutout the McIntosh County Academy Buccaneers 33-0 at Donell Woods Stadium.
The Tigers had a chance to tie the game or take the lead in the fourth quarter after making huge gains. They started at their own five yard line and methodically marched across to the Cavaliers five. But the Tigers couldn’t punch through the goal line.
The Cavaliers also had a chance to run up the score getting the ball at the Tigers eight yard line with 1:21 remaining in regulation. Instead they took three snaps and three knees to end the game with a 13-6 win.
Two calls in the first half of play cost the Tigers nearly 85 yards of positive gains when flags were thrown against both teams. Both times the referees called offsetting penalties re-playing the down. One negated a 65 yard run by Christian Evans. The other, brought back a 25 yard run by Luther Echols. The Tigers’ coaching staff was twice warned for sideline violations. The third time cost the Tigers another five yard penalty.
The Tigers are 0-2 and play at Richmond Hill next Friday.
Liberty County High
The Buccaneers were forced to walk the plank as the Panthers shutout the visiting team 33-0. Liberty managed to run up the score in the first half of play despite generating less than 200 yards of offense. The Panthers also were able to take advantage of a running fourth quarter clock. The lead allowed the coaching staff to rest several starters and test their bench.
Liberty is now 2-1 and has a huge challenge next Friday playing at Benedictine.
Long County and First Presbyterian Christian Academy had a bye-week.
