Priceville scores early in victory
Hamilton, Hale run for touchdowns for 3-3 Bulldogs

From Staff Reports

Priceville High scored two first-quarter touchdowns and rode them to a 16-12 win over DAR.

Priceville (3-3) has won two straight.

Jayson Hamilton opened the scoring with a 9-yard touchdown run for Priceville.

After DAR scored to make it 6-6, the Bulldogs responded with another touchdown on Jeremy Hale’s 4-yard run.

Lorand Dragu’s extra point made it 13-6.

DAR scored again in the second quarter, but Priceville went up 16-12 with a 33-yard field goal from Justin Anderson.

Priceville’s defense shut out DAR in the second half.

The Bulldogs’ biggest moment came in the fourth quarter when DAR reached the 1-yard line and had first-and-goal.

Priceville held and didn’t allow any of the next four plays to cross the goal line.

Hale finished with 18 carries for 133 rushing yards.

Madison County 39, Ardmore 7: Kevin Shelton caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from E.J. Barnes in the second quarter, but it wasn’t enough to lift Ardmore.

Shelton added the extra point on a night in which Ardmore dropped to 1-5.

The Tigers’ Landon Curtis rushed 15 times for 76 yards.

For Madison County (6-0), which isn’t ranked in the top 10, Cameron Cross rushed 13 times for 226 yards and three touchdowns.

T.J. Gurley passed for two touchdowns and rushed for a third.

Wilson 47, Lawrence County 12: Trey Harrell rushed for 130 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Warriors.

Wilson (4-2) rolled to 348 yards rushing as a team.

“We executed things we had not been doing before,” Wilson coach Chris Balentine said.

“Turnovers have been killing us all year, but when we don’t turn it over we win. We played a bunch of young kids and they are going to make young mistakes. Our offensive line played so well I could have run through there and got a few yards.”

After Wilson took a 7-0 lead in the opening quarter, Lawrence County (2-4) quickly answered when Aaron Hubbert took the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.

Wilson then reeled off 40 straight points before the Red Devils scored again.

They got a late 46-yard run by Hubbert to set up Radney Wallace’s 14-yard touchdown run.
