THS still unbeaten halfway through season
Thorsby rolled to 5-0, its best start ever, with a 42-6 win at Shades Mountain Christian on Sept. 24.
The hosts recovered an onside kick to begin the game, but Thorsby (3-0 Class 2A, Region 4) forced a punt and then drove 85 yards—only to lose a fumble on the 1-yard line.
But Shades Mountain (0-5, 0-3 Class 1A, Region 4) fumbled the ball back on then next play, and Thorsby’s Erick Camarillo picked up the loose ball and ran it in for a touchdown.
Lalo Rico kicked the extra point; he was 6-for-6 on point-after tries for the day.
Senior Marcus Bray ran 49 yards on a reverse for the next THS TD, and minutes later Bray caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Andrew Farris.
Farris scored on a 33-yard run right before the end of the first half to make it 28-0.
On the last series the Thorsby starters would play, Farris began the second half by leading the Rebels down the field and then scoring on a run.
Shades Mountain then scored to make it 35-6.
Thorsby’s Bo Hoffman scored the last points of the night with a 5-yard run.
Farris rushed 11 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns, and he passed for another score.
Bray rushed three times for 71 yards and a touchdown, caught three passes for 68 yards and a score and intercepted a pass on defense.
Thorsby this week will host region foe American Christian in a game that will begin at 7 p.m. at Susan Bentley Field.
