With just one week to the kick-off of the 2013 football season, the Isabella Mustangs played host to the Billingsley Bears and Chilton County Tigers on Thursday night in jamboree action as teams continue to finalize game plans for their season openers.

The CCHS Tigers got out to a strong start in Game 1, forcing the Mustangs to a three-and-out and turning the forced punt into a touchdown on a Tyler Henderson 2-yard touchdown run. Stephen Horn’s point-after was true for a 7-0 CCHS lead.

The Tigers found the end zone again on their second possession when quarterback Trenton Bishop connected with wideout Braylen Parker for 41 yards and a touchdown, putting the Tigers up 14-0 with the extra point.

The Mustangs struck back on their second possession with Jacob Carroll going in from 1 yard out to draw the Mustangs to within seven.

The CCHS offense wasn’t done for the night and scored again when Anthony Chavez found Keandre Binion for 4 yards and a touchdown, giving the Tigers the final 21-7 win.

The Tigers faced a fresh Billingsley team in Game 2, and the Bears took advantage of their fresh legs, jumping on the Tigers early and scoring the game’s only touchdown with their first drive of the night.

Thomas Nichols found Terrance Nolen for 9 yards, and Rashaud Caver’s 2-point conversion gave the Bears an 8-0 lead that they would carry until the final whistle.

The Mustangs completed the night by picking up a win over Billingsley in the final game, 14-0.

Brandon Chapman scooped up a Billingsley fumble at their own 45-yard line and ran it in, giving the Mustangs an early 7-0 lead.

Tyler Smith scored on the Mustangs’ next possession, on a 49-yard run, to give the Mustangs a final score of 14-0.

All three teams will start their regular seasons next week with Chilton County hitting the road to take on Jemison on Thursday night, while Billingsley plays host to Prattville Christian and Isabella plays host to Central Coosa on Friday night.
