In their final game of the season Tuesday at Elberta, the Brewton Middle School football team ended their season with a win.
The Tigers defeated Elberta 40-6 to finish their 2011 season with a 3-3 record.
The game started in a good way for the Tigers. After winning the toss and deferring to the second half, Elberta fumbled on their first play from the line of scrimmage and the Tigers recovered it at the 50-yard line.
Noah Morris caught a pass for two yards for the Tigers and was followed by Jared Cooper’s run of 13 yards and Markail Mitchell’s runs of 11 and 15 yards.
Cooper would later score on a 9-yard run and the two-point conversion was no good as Brewton led 6-0 early.
On the next series, Elberta started their drive on their own 30-yard line and two plays later fumbled and Jake Najor picked up the fumble and ran it 24 yards for Brewton’s second score.
The conversion was added by Anteriod Drakeford making the score 14-0 in favor of the Tigers from Brewton.
Markail Mitchell scored two more times for Brewton and Marcus Paul scored twice, with two-points conversions being added by Cooper and Jacob Gunter.
The Tiger defense was stingy all night long only giving up one first down in the first half and three in the second while holding Elberta to six points all night long.
Brewton racked up 334 yards rushing. The 334 yards came with two Tigers out to injures.
For Brewton, Phillip Nordemeyer and Noah Morris each had one pass reception for two yards. Tripp Floyd had one carry for one yard and Markail Mitchell had eight carries for 115 yards and one touchdown. Jared Cooper had two carries for 38 yards and a touchdown and Anteroid Drakeford had three carries for 18 yards.
Marcus Paul had five carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns and Joshua Gunter had six carries for 64 yards and a touchdown. Hunter Brittain had one carry for six yards and Jake Najor had fumble recovery for a touchdown.
“It was a good way to end our season and finish with a 3-3 record,” BMS head coach Gerald McAnally said.
