Aliceville 51, Thorsby 7  


Thorsby played host to the Class 2A Region 4 leader Aliceville Yellow Jackets on Friday night in the first matchup ever between the two teams.

Aliceville came in with a 5-1 overall record and 4-0 in region play, having not lost since their first game of the season at Gordo.

Thorsby came into the matchup with a 1-5 overall record, but held a 1-2 record in region play; meaning playoff hopes were still alive.

In order to continue any hope of the playoffs they had to take down the Yellow Jackets in their toughest game of the year, but that task would proved to be too much as the Rebels fell by a score of 51-7.

It was a tough blow for Thorsby, but depending on how other games turn out tonight they still could have an outside chance of making the playoffs. After falling to (1-6, 1-3) it is not very likely, but with two region games left against Billingsley and Keith there’s a shot.

The Rebels will travel to Billingsley next Friday to take on the Bears, and even if playoff hopes are lost it could still be a game to help build this young team’s confidence.


Calera 41, Jemison 27


Jemison drops its second straight game after enjoying a run of three consecutive victories prior to that. The Panthers (3-4, 2-2) look to find their groove once again as they end the regular season with three straight home games.


R.C. Hatch 20, Billingsley 19


The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the Bears, as Billingsley falls to a record of 3-3 overall and 2-2 in Region 4-2A.

Next up for Billinglsey is another region game at home against Thorsby.
