BOAZ, Ala. — The Crossville Lions travelled to take on the Boaz Pirates in region play on Friday night. Boaz defeated Crossville, 35-3.  The Crossville Lions stood toe to toe with the #9 ranked team who has an All-State running back that usually averages 250 yards per game.

The Pirates attacked the Lions early, scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter.

The Crossville Lions kicked a field goal in the second quarter to go into the half, trailing Boaz 14-3.

In the third quarter, the Pirates tacked on two more touchdowns to make the score 28-3.

The Pirates scored once more in the fourth to make the final score 35-3.

“The Crossville Lions are off this week, at a much needed time of the season to get well. We still have a chance to win out and make the playoffs” stated Head Coach Dusty Darnell.  “ We’re still laying the blocks on a foundation that was nearly destroyed and the rebuilding phase was started two years ago” continued Darnell. “We still have a long way to go to get Crossville football back to playing the game the right way.”
