East Gadsden battled Madison and Godby to a pair of ties in spring football jamboree action at Gene Cox Stadium Friday.
It was all defense in the Jaguars’ first half of action when they and the Cowboys fought to a scoreless tie.
They managed to score a touchdown against Godby on a 70-yard Jajuan Perkins to Malik McCallister strike. But the Cougars managed two field goals to tie the half 6-6.
A late field goal miss by East Gadsden could have given the Jaguars the win. “We would have liked the win,” East Gadsden coach Trace Laing said. “But all in all I’m happy with our spring and am looking forward to the fall.”
In the third half of the night Godby defeated Madison 7-0.
Munroe traveled to Thomasville Friday night and took on Brookwood in the Spring Football Classic.
The home team won the game 38-28 in an offense-dominated game.
“We looked good on offense,” Munroe head coach Danny Hood commented. “We played well on the offensive line and made some good things happen.”
Bo Bailey scored a pair of touchdowns for Munroe, as did Myles Edwards. Both Bailey’s scores came on scrimmage runs including one of 70 yards.
One of Edwards’ scores came on a scrimmage run while the other was the result of a pass interception. Edwards also ran in a two-point conversion.
Quarterback Will Harris and offensive lineman Sean Newton also had good nights for the Bobcats whose next action will come in a late summer jamboree at Corry Field on August 23.
