The East Brewton Eagles hosted the Opp Bobcats Oct. 27.
East Brewton's four teams swept the Bobcats with victories that in some cases determined the seed that they would hold in the upcoming Tri-County League &#8220Super Bowl” which is to be held at East Brewton next Saturday.
East Brewton Midgets
The day began with East Brewton's Midgets defeating the Bobcats by a score of 14-12. Weston Riddle was responsible for the Midgets first touchdown with Ryan Faulk taking care of the two point conversion.
Faulk went on to score the final touchdown of the game that gave our East Brewton Midget's the victory and ended their season with a 3-2-1 record. Although the Midgets do not compete at the Super Bowl level, East Brewton is very proud of the accomplishments of this young team.
East Brewton Tiny Mites
The second game was a chance for East Brewton's Tiny Mites to defeat the only team that remained 5-0, until Saturday.
The fireworks began from the first snap of the football with each team taking turns scoring in the first half of play. In the first quarter Matt Hutchins grabbed a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joseph Booker and Keith Barksdale followed up with a 3-yard run for the two-point conversion.
The next quarter began with Booker rushing for 45 yards and Barksdale finishing the drive with a 5-yard touchdown run.
Kristian Taylor continued the second quarter of excitement with a 19-yard touchdown run. Halftime came and went and the East Brewton Tiny Mites came out even stronger.
Barksdale started the third quarter with a 30 yard touchdown run. The two point conversion was good when Booker tossed the ball over the heads of the defense to running back P.J. Lovelace.
Taylor then took a fumble recovery in for a touchdown with Booker clinching the two point conversion with a 3 yard run.
The final quarter of play Booker found Lovelace in the end zone and completed a 12-yard pass for a touchdown and followed up with a two-point conversion.
Jacoby Hawthorne caught the final touchdown pass ending the game with a score of 50-24.
