Tigers set up showdown

Chilton County held up its end of the deal to set up a mega match-up next week.

The Tigers (4-1) won at Marbury on Friday, 28-0, and extended a streak of not having allowed a touchdown since Week 3.

Next up is Sylacauga, which is tied for first place in Class 5A, Region 4. CCHS fell 17-14 to Homewood, the other unbeaten team in region play, in Week 2. The Sylacauga game is an opportunity for CCHS to re-insert itself into the race for region champion.

“It’s huge,” CCHS coach Donnie Hand said after Friday’s game. “This is going to determine how great of a season we can get, playing against them, and they’ve got a great team.”

The Marbury game was scoreless until a 16-yard touchdown run by Richard Hilliard with 9:48 remaining in the third quarter.

The Tigers would score on the next three possessions.

Chance Britnell connected with Vadall Morrow for a 27-yard scoring play and then found Austin Rossi for a 27-yard TD.

The scoring was concluded by a 21-yard touchdown run by Michael Seaton.

Seaton finished with 121 yards rushing on 22 carries. Britnell was 8-of-11 passing for 180 yards.

“The defense played great,” Hand said. “The offense finally picked it up in the second half.”
