The Brewton Middle School’s seventh- and eighth-grade teams split with Escambia County Thursday night at Brewton Municipal Stadium.
The seventh-grade teams from both schools came out with a 6-6 tie as they played one 15-minute quarter.
Escambia County was the first to put a dent in the scoreboard as they intercepted a Kevin Davis pass and ran it 60 yards back the other way to take a 6-0 lead after the two-point conversion failed with 34 seconds left in the game.
In the final seconds Brewton went 70 yards in two plays, courtesy of a 36-yard Davis pass to Ryan Hunt that moved the ball to the Escambia County 34-yard line and then a 34-yard touchdown pass from Davis to Jamal Spears that tied the game at 6-6 with seven seconds left.
A desperation Escambia County pass was stopped as the game ended in a tie.
Spears was also the leading rusher for the Tigers as he had 24 yards on three carries.
Davis finished 3-for-4 with 80 yards passing and one interception.
Eighth grade
In the eighth-grade game, the Brewton Tigers suffered a 14-0 loss to the visitors from Escambia County.
The Tigers were able to hang in the game against a big Escambia County team but could not generate much offense as they failed to reach the end zone.
Devote Johnson was the leading rusher for the Brewton Tigers as he had 35 yards on eight carries.
Quarterback Conner Denton was 1-for-3 on the night with 3 yards passing to Caleb Hubbard.
