Darkness beats Cougars, Mustangs

Darkness beats Cougars, Mustangs
Both Hillcrest and Ridgemont were left in the dark at their middle school football game Thursday night.
The Cougars and Mustangs — both of whom are in the hunt for Rebel Bowl berths — played to a 26-all tie when it was determined there was not enough light available for the teams to finish the contest that was called early in the fourth quarter.
The field at Hillcrest, like a couple of others in the county, does not have lights. The contest started around 5:30.
It will not be resumed, and will be counted as a tie on both teams’ records.
Hillcrest appears to be a lock for one spot in the Obion County School System championship game, while the Ridgemont-South Fulton winner next week, should clinch the other berth.
In other games Thursday involving local teams of interest, South Fulton topped Lake Road 30-6, and Lake County beat Black Oak 38-8.

The Cougars, who benefited from four first-half turnovers, held a 26-12 lead before R’mont evened the count with a pair of TDs.
