Tigers fall to 0-2 with loss to Homewood

Published 12:36am Saturday, September 7, 2013

One week after a disappointing loss to county rival Jemison, Chilton County High School’s football team fell to 0-2 on the season with a 42-7 loss to Homewood.

The Tigers are now 0-1 in Class 5A, Region 3 play.

Homewood took control of Friday’s game early, scoring on a 27-yard run just moments into the contest.

CCHS converted a fourth-and-short play on its first possession, but the drive yielded no points and Homewood scored again with less than 1 minute remaining in the first quarter.

Homewood’s quarterback fumbled the ball on a designed keeper on a 2-point conversion try, but the loose ball was picked up by a teammate and run in, a sign that this was not Chilton’s night.

The visiting Patriots (1-1, 1-0) scored again before halftime, on a 66-yard pass that saw the Chilton defender trip and fall.

The Tigers’ only score came in the fourth quarter, on a 3-yard run by Trenton Bishop.
