Ponies go upward to rally past Tide

Ponies go upward to rally past Tide

Jacob Warbritton threw two touchdown passes in the second half to rally Huntingdon to a 36-24 victory over Trenton Friday.
Both of Warbritton’s scoring tosses went to Jacob Blake, covering 21 and 64 yards, lifting the Mustangs from a 24-21 third-quarter deficit.
The receptions were the first in the career of junior tight-end.
Peabody’s Tavarian Bar-nett ran for 167 yards — an 80-yard TD sprint late in the third quarter that put the Tide ahead included.
Huntingdon rolled up nearly 500 yards (497) of total offense while sending Trenton to its second straight tough loss.
Peabody had dropped a 36-35 overtime decision to Milan in Week 0.
