Phil Campbell can't control Tanner duo

From staff reports

The Tanner High tandem of Jarquise Peoples and Derrick Malone helped the Rattlers run over Phil Campbell 47-22 on Friday night.

Peoples rushed for 225 yards on 17 carries and scored three touchdowns, and Malone picked up 173 rushing yards on 18 carries and scored two touchdowns.

As a team, Tanner (3-1) rushed for 505 yards, while limiting Phil Campbell to 6.

Peoples scored on runs of 1, 6 and 35 yards, all in the first half. Malone scored on runs of 1 and 17 yards, both in the third quarter.

In the fourth quarter, Dominique Randolph rushed 33 yards for a touchdown, while Jeremy Turner Malone scored on a 22-yard run.

Red Bay 31, West Morgan 28: Red Bay (4-0) scored a controversial touchdown with no time on the clock to edge West Morgan (1-3).

Red Bay had the ball at the 1 and rushed toward the end zone as the clocked ticked to zero. When the officials unpiled the scrum, it wasn't clear whether the ball carrier had picked up the touchdown or not.

The officials consulted with each other and after a 15-second interval, they ruled a touchdown, giving West Morgan a heart-breaking loss.

"We outplayed them," West Morgan coach Pierre Coggins said. "We whipped them all over the field."

Rebels quarterback Josh McAbee produced a big game with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Quintin Davis and scoring runs of 65 and 10 yards. Michael Clem also tossed a 10-yard scoring pass to Blake Gholston.

Jared Spooner was perfect on four extra-point attempts.

Addison 21, Cherokee 12: The eighth-ranked Bulldogs found themselves down 6-0 after one period before rallying for a victory.

Andrew Privett started the rally with a 22-yard touchdown run to tie it at 6-6 in the second quarter. Privett then added a 67-yard touchdown run, and his 2-point pass to Jordan Wiggins made it 14-6.

Jason Fowler added a 3-yard touchdown pass, and Daniel Mann's extra point made it 21-6.

Cherokee added another touchdown in the fourth quarter when Dominique Gromms caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from Kelvin Martin, but by then, Addison had clinched the victory.

Gromms accounted for the first-quarter touchdown on a 33-yard pass.

Privett finished with 117 rushing yards on 11 carries.

Falkville 26, Cold Springs 7: Jonathan McNatt scored two touchdowns and threw a pass to Steven Lindsey for a third.

Dustin Jump added a 47-yard touchdown run.

Falkville led 12-0 after the opening half on McNatt's 2-yard touchdown run and 3-yard scoring throw to Lindsey.

After Cold Springs scored in the third period, McNatt rushed 2 yards for another touchdown, and Jeremy Clemons caught a 2-point conversion from McNatt.

Jump added his touchdown run in the final period.

Winston County 45, Hatton 33: Tevin Terrell piled up 135 rushing yards on 16 carries and scored four touchdowns.

In addition, he made nine tackles.

Barry Pool paced Hatton with 11 tackles, and Chase Martin returned a kickoff 58 yards for a touchdown.
