Senior Morgan Little was crowned 2011 Homecoming Queen. Her court of princesses were: Megan Weaver, seventh grade; Sarina Gutierrez, eight grade; Skylar Keener, ninth grade; Brooke Brasher, 10th grade; and Kiana Andrews, 11th grade.

The Maplesville Red Devils defeated the Shades Mountain Christian Eagles in a 42-2 blowout on Sept. 16.

Not only was it the Red Devils’ homecoming, but it was also their third region win.

Despite some distractions from the home-field hype, MHS coach Brent Hubbert said his team played well and he was excited about the win.

Out of reach: Maplesville quarterback Colby Chambers, right, runs for yardage during Friday’s win over Shades Mtn.

“The offense did what they needed to do,” Hubbert said. “Defense starters did a great job.”

The Red Devils’ starting defense held the Eagles to -22 rushing yards and -1 passing yards.

Hubbert also said a lot of young players had more playing time and chances to shine in Friday night’s game.

A prime example is sophomore quarterback Colby Chambers. Chambers threw for two touchdowns and rushed for two more.

Another key player was junior fullback Brintain Hill. Hill was the leading rusher with eight carries for 72 yards. He had a 26-yard touchdown run.

Maplesville rushed for a total of 279 yards and passed for 135 yards.

As the team made its way to the locker room for halftime, the MHS Homecoming representatives from grades 7-12 took the field.

Senior Morgan Little was crowned 2011 Homecoming Queen. Homecoming Princesses crowned were junior Kiana Andrews, sophomore Brooke Brasher, freshman Skylar Keener, eight-grader Sarina Gutierrez and seventh-grader Megan Weaver.
