Hale rains on Rebels

The Hale County Wildcats proved too much for the Thorsby Rebels on Friday night, handing them a 35-6 loss.

The Rebels’ only trip to the end zone was Marcus Bray’s 15-yard run late in the fourth quarter, and the conversion attempt was no good.

Hale County started scoring early on, as Justin Spence ran a short touchdown in the first quarter. Spence returned in the second with a 5-yard touchdown run.

With 5:26 remaining in the first half, Grant Stevens penetrated from 6 yards out, but the Wildcats weren’t through yet.

With just a minute to halftime, Stevens connected with Jovan Spence for a 12-yard touchdown pass, making the score 28-0 at the half.

After a scoreless third quarter, Hale County’s Adrian Weston galloped down the field for a 62-yard touchdown run. The ensuing extra point locked in a 35-point lead for the Wildcats, and it would be more than enough for a victory.

Thorsby regained possession on a fumble late in the fourth, but Hale County intercepted and let the clock run out.

Next week the Rebels travel to Winterboro for their last game of the season.
