Rebels rebound from first loss

THORSBY — The Thorsby Rebels picked up their sixth win of the season Friday night by smashing Central-Hayneville 56-8.

Bo Hoffman was first to cross the goal line with a 15-yard run. Then, Andrew Farris made it look easy with a 40-yard touchdown run and a short pass to Nathan Oldroyd for 6 more points.

Trent McClain recovered a fumble and ran back more than 30-yards to make the score 28-0 by the end of the first.

In the second quarter, it was Oldroyd’s turn to pass the ball, and he connected with B.B. Evans for a 25-yard touchdown play.

A 20-yard run by Hoffman to the 1-yard line allowed Dustin Wilson to power his way into the end zone for another touchdown.

Looking for paydirt: Thorsby sophomore Bo Hoffman gains ground versus Central-Hayneville Friday night.

With 1:47 remaining in the half, Central-Hayneville’s pass-heavy offense came through with a 60-yard reception by Matthew Dillon. Then Ashton Ward tacked on a 2-point conversion for the Lions.

Central came close to scoring again before halftime, but despite a pass interference call against the Rebels, Thorsby stood their ground.

The Rebels led 41-8 at halftime, and the third and fourth quarters were shortened to 6 minutes each.

Touchdowns in the third quarter came courtesy of Farris, who connected with Marcus Bray for 39 yards, and Hoffman with a 4-yard dash across the goal line. After Farris and Bray’s touchdown, C.J. Melendy caught a 2-point conversion pass.

Later, Jacob Hamilton intercepted for Thorsby, but no one else would score.

“We came out and took care of business tonight,” Thorsby coach Billy Jackson said. “We got a bunch of young kids playing experience, which is never bad.”

The Rebels (6-1) face Vincent next week for Thorsby’s homecoming game.
