GAYLESVILLE, Ala. — The Valley Head Tigers were defeated the Gaylesville Trojans 26-13 in region play last week.

The Tigers’ opening drive began with a 40-yard kickoff return by Bryson Morgan. Marlon Trinidad then carried the ball for 13 yards, which put the Tigers in the red zone, but the Tigers went four-and-out.

The Trojans took an early lead with an 80-yard touchdown run. The PAT was no good, but the Trojans reigned at 6-0 with 8:31 left in the first quarter.

To start the second quarter, with 11:51 remaining, Trinidad scored from two yards out. The PAT was good, giving the Tigers a 7-6 lead that wouldn’t last long. The Trojans replied with a 60-yard drive then 9-yard touchdown run. Gaylesville then went for two, making the score 14-7 with 8:30 remaining in the first half.

The Tigers scored on a 5-yard run by David Hatfield. An extra point would have tied the game, but the kick was blocked to make the score 14-13 as the halftime buzzer sounded.

In the third, the Trojans dashed down the field with a 15-yard run. They went for two, but Valley Head stood strong and stopped them to make the score 20-13 with just 4:45 left in the third.

In the fourth quarter, the Trojans expanded their lead with a 74-yard pass. Their two point conversion failed, but they still got to build their lead to 26-13.

The Tigers’ last two possessions went three-and-out. The Trojans ran the clock out to win over Valley Head for the first time since 2011.

The Tigers will host the Ider Hornets this Friday night.
