|Hayden Alford’s 21-yard touchdown run with less than two minutes remaining lifted Dyersburg to a stunning 42-35 upset of second-ranked Crockett County Friday night.
The surprising triumph was the Trojans’ second in a row after an 0-4 start, and the loss CC’s first in six games overall and in three District 13AA outings.
The result also caused a logjam in the league standings with the Cavaliers, Milan, Ripley and Covington all trailing first-place Westview now in the race for two automatic state playoff berths.
The Cavaliers had rallied from a 35-13 deficit with 22 fourth-quarter points to forge a tie before the Trojans stuck in the game winner that was set up by a 52-yard pass halfback pass from Demite Warren to Steven Permenter.
Alford then capped the 84-yard deciding march.
Huntingdon 28, Dresden 22
Tyler Warbritton threw three touchdown passes and Bam Melton scored the game-winning touchdown in the waning minutes to help the Mustangs take a gigantic step toward the playoffs and knock off sixth-ranked (2A) Dresden.
Warbritton’s uncharacteristic passing display (just one previous TD pass in four previous games) included scoring passes of 33 and 16 yards to Melton in the second quarter and a 33-yard strike to K.C. Miller in the final period.
A failed two-point conversion left the Ponies (3-4, 3-0 in District 13A) behind 22-20 before Melton scored the last of his three touchdowns on a two-yard run.
Warbritton, who also led Huntingdon in rushing with 82 yards, completed 5-of-8 passes for 118 yards in all.
Dresden (5-2, 1-2) got a pair of scoring passes from quarterback Dale Hutcherson, who also accounted for a third TD with a one-yard keeper.
Humboldt 13, Trenton 3
The Vikings intercepted three Peabody passes, the last returned 99 yards by Zack Shepherd in the fourth quarter when the Tide was driving for a go-ahead score.
Naijon Miller was subbing for Trenton starting QB Jerry Rogers, who was benched during the week by head coach Kent Scott.
Quan Campbell rushed for 174 yards and H’boldt’s other TD.
Lake Co. 40, Hayti 22
Sam Hays used both his arm and feet to lift the fifth-ranked (1A) Falcons to their fifth win in six starts.
Hayes threw for 171 yards and two touchdowns to Rafael Tyler and ran for another 100 yards and two scores as LC piled up 484 yards of offense all totaled.
Bruceton 20, Gleason 19
The Hollow Rock-Bruceton boys are on a roll.
Having snapped a 23-game losing streak that spanned three seasons back in Week 3, the Tigers won for the third time in four Fridays to improve to 3-3 overall and gain their first District 13A triumph since 2007.
Chandler Jordan scored all three Bruceton TDs — on runs of 10 and 95 yards, and after catching a 34-yard pass from Hayden Howell.
Jordan finished with 221 yards rushing.
Camden 39, Mont. Cent. 0
Derek Easley helped keep third-ranked Camden (7-0) perfect with an impressive District 11AA triumph.
Easley threw TD passes of 38 yards to Trae White and 69 yards to Blake Riley after opening the scoring with a four-yard paydirt run.
