B.B. Comer tops Thorsby in last region gameBy Emily Beckett Published 10:35pm Friday, October 25, 2013
B.B. Comer arrived in Thorsby on Friday with more players and left with a 36–0 win in the Rebels’ final region game of the season.
The Tigers (5–4 overall, 4–3 region) amassed five touchdowns against the Rebels (1–8, 0–7).
B.B. Comer’s first touchdown came in the first quarter with 6 minutes left.
The Tigers scored two more touchdowns in the second quarter and completed two 2-point conversions, sealing a 22–0 lead by halftime.
They struck again in the third quarter with a touchdown with nearly five minutes left to play, followed by another eight points in the fourth.
Offensively, the Rebels’ Cameron Castleberry had four receptions for 45 yards, along with two kickoff returns and about 120 total yards.
“We’ve had a tough row this year, but the kids are playing hard,” Thorsby head coach Billy Jackson said. “We’re just a little bit outmatched in 3A.”
After the game, Jackson told his players “a new season starts Monday,” and he expects them to show up to practice ready to prepare for their last game of the regular season against county rival Isabella next week.
“I want your very best,” Jackson said to the team. “This is cutthroat.”
