Subtitles prepared by human
Hasn't been this deep in the postseason since 1998 when the lipids went back to back titles. Park Crossing is the new kid on the block and looks to get the record perfect for the win on the home field of Cramton Bowl. The Thunderbirds and leopards do On Raycom. We are in the capital city Cramton Bowl for 6A quarterfinal The leopards up Blount and the Thunderbirds of Park Crossing. Hi, everybody. I'm Graham Dunn. The six in the corner final action, this is what a lovely gets tough. You don't play any bad teams when you get -- >> They're no bad teams left anywhere the state. We've got 7A semi finals tonight Is good football from here on out. That's about 30 games going on across the state tonight. I don't think that we will find a more prolific duo of quarterbacks in this one. No doubt. These two guys coming in, they're eerily similar when you look at the numbers. The Florida commit, and 2400 2400 yards
. Twenty-six touchdowns, only nine He's got 786 yards rushing on that year and several more touchdowns in that category. Been on the other side you got a Malik Cunningham. Twenty-four touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's got excuse me, 17 more touchdowns and has been responsible for 41 scores for Park Crossing. That's why they are 4-0. Those two guys are could take these guys were with these two teams go. They are on their backs that the got to pick good supporting cast but they're on their backs for sure. the third member of our crew tonight is Kim Canova on the sideline. These are two very well matched teams and they come from two very different places. First Park Crossing only three years old in the first hit they had a JV ball team and now they're here tonight in on your side we have Blount and they've been around for over 60 years. In fact, 5 of the coaches on staff tonight played in championship games for Blount Blount back in the '90s. It's going to be a good one. Back to you. Park Crossing in the home blue with the red trim silver out of
the mobile Prichard area. As you were just discussing, Kim Kim, the leopards have won championships. They won back-to-back titles back in the 90s and really happened that a whole lot since. You mentioned in the open and this is when they been deep in the playoff. The senior with return, we get a return at country and is Mike mentioned in the start, I guess were calling the touchdown. And he is one of the top players and the state and he's benching as a possible Mr. Football finalist and I tell you what, and they'll decide if which one of these guys gets the honor. And it is going to believe against Park Crossing. A false start, that is going to be the call. They were at the region to champions and now one of those wins was a forfeit and the did lose to Robert E Lee early in the season but the generals had to give up every when and a
playoff spot, one of those coming against the Thunderbirds. So first and 15. Miles is the running back and he'll get most of the carries tonight and the tailback spot and he will pick up about 6 6 yards, five plus one and it will be second and eight. A line for Park Crossing as you watch the carry from broad neck. You've got quick cannot right guard and Reggie Hightower and he Jenkins, number 70, keep an eye on him. That is the reason they call him tank. Second and 8. This time nowhere to go out and he might've lost a yard against a very fast Blount Leopard team. Absolutely delicious but to mention believe that it was the defensive and from this side of here . I'm hoping were saying this He just put on a speed rush from the backside of the play before he got to the line of scrimmage. That is an example of the type of speed that they had on the defensive side for Blount. So possession down on this first
On third down, Cunningham looking deep and now he will go with it. He has got to get 48 and he is across midfield at 48. We don't know if you have the right angle to get them out before he got the mistakes but he saw his objective in mind and so a 14- 14-yard run right there on that third and long play. One thing about both of these teams, they face this type of quarterback every day in practice so we will see which one will -- Straightahead for about five. 2-10 on the year in region one. And out in the flat complete. That is Jackson tape transfer and he will rumble across the third it can get down to the 25 and another first down for Park Crossing. The sorrow of those players which by the way, had a 70 game winning streak. This guy right here was a big part of that in the last couple of years. You can see, Graham, how many times do you hear a kick coming out of an ASA school and going to a 6A school and becoming a
starter and a primary starter. That is the story here . That Plasse is incomplete. This team is got a couple of guys who really contributed and you will see another one on defense. Just to give you an example, Tate, 689 yards receiving this year, 45 catches and he is just a guide that understands the game of football. It will come here with 9:23 to play in the first quarter so people take a timeout. There's no score for Park Crossing is pressing. That got a deep in their own territory. tonight's presentation of the path to the playoffs is brought to impart by the Alabama Department of Transportation. We want to remind you to always wear your seatbelt. Almost a benefit bit -- Eight or 50 people died in crashes and Alabama and mostly for not wearing a seatbelt. Learn how to stay safe on the road and drive safe, Alabama, Alabama,.org. Second and 10 and Cunningham takes off. He's got inside the 5, first and Thunderbirds. Great recognition by Malik Cunningham as he stood back in the pocket and plenty of time to
I've got running room and he took advantage. Got a good block out there. I believe that that was Jackson take that gave him a good block on the right side over there and yards. He gets down inside the five. Just outside five and people picture near side. He need some help and cuts it back in and gets to the line of scrimmage. There is a flag down. That make go against Park Crossing. It will. I will tell you this, we didn't talk but this we probably should have brought up with coach during the pregame. They have had troubles with penalties all your long and they Eighteen the week before that and that has been their biggest bugaboo of the season. This is the first drive, a false inside the 5. That will put them all the way back inside the 15-yard line at to the 16. So not what coach wanted to see for sure. So now first and goal at the 16- 16-yard line.
Already a couple of penalties . 15 yards on those penalties. They will run for wide outs including Tate on the near side They will run instead. He gets to the 15 or maybe the 14. He is hit by Martin, suffer who coach said that he is their best run stopper. He had a lot of high praise for Martin. I was just looking at the alignment of the defense, basically Blount brought everybody except for the defensive backs on that particular play. In the defensive line did a good Second and goal at the 15. Cunningham looking to throw. Nothing there and now floats what and the end zone and it is out of reach. The intended receiver, I believe there. It will be third and goal pretty He threw that out of everybody switched just make sure that it
wasn't picked off. He got a little bit of pressure and realized that didn't have room to run. I think he just threw that one Ofer everybody to get to the next play. So now they have got third and goal just inside the 15. The clock is stopped at 7:46. We're early in the first quarter quarter. They will throw it again. Now looking back over the middle and he's going to go down at the 25. I believe that was number five, Kennedy as well who is in on the A 10-yard loss. And it was Kennedy. He is not going to get away from the speed and quickness of that Blount defense. That was candidate. So 41-yard attempt from Jake Lane. He can kick at that far in he just proved it. He has got a 50 yarder this year earlier with a 49-yard kick and Park Crossing draws first blood at 3-0 with a shade Ofer seven minutes to play.
I couldn't even break on him. A got them out their so fast. He talked about what a weapon he was to have . You see how high it is and how much distance that had going through. That would've been good for much further back. This kid is a great story. His mom has become his driver in the summer, taking him to kicking camps and showcases and he has been literally all over the country going to those things and it has paid off. And most of his kicks are going to go in the end zone, as you see that one. So we will get our first look at the leopard office led by Tony. He is a Junior. He's got 26 touchdowns passing and I believe seven touchdowns on the ground. That's it I was saying. These two quarterbacks, we might not have had a quarterback matchup like this since the semi final game last year when we had Those are two prolific quarterbacks. These two guys are very, very similar. That was an a championship game but we had another great matchup in the semi's with Benjamin
Russell's quarterback. First and 10 and 20 got about going deep and instead is going to take it outside. A little bit of a running room but is going to get run out of bounds by Jeremiah at the 26- 26-yard line. Jeremiah Lowrie, the senior. Another one of those edge would transfers who was headed to West Point . You're going to see he almost unleashes this ball. He looks like he was going to throw it deep and got pressure and he couldn't quite get a hold 5 yards on the play. Second and five, handoff. Nothing doing. Lost a couple. of leak you are bright. He is the leading rusher for the couple. I believe that that was Cameron Bright that finished off the tackle in the backfield for Park They've got some tackling machines on the defense. And that might be Davis. That I think bright finished him off. Bright with hundred 16 tackles and 16.5 sacks. Third and 8 and that one is incomplete. It was a little low and it was thrown in a plays that only he
could catch it. I guess I thought he would probably tell us they should've caught the ball but at any rate we've got to go to fourth down here. I don't know if you should compare scores. Something to keep in mind, Park Crossing East into this third round beating Saraland 45-7 and Bessemer city 52-26 wild Blount had a couple of close ones 27-25 , some good teams, but they have been in battles in both rounds . This is going to bounce around midfield and that is where Park Crossing will have it. When we come back, three desert our score. The 42-yard field goal is the difference. We will be back. A little work to do with the early stages of this one. On first down, try to run wide. They will use -- Lose a couple yards. Not much there. Good pursuit by the defense. I don't think that there is
lactose speed. You going to see them flying all Second and 10 I believe he was a yard short. You see his elusiveness. You see his number. He was wearing six for most of the season. There was already player wearing 6 that play defense. And chains -- First down for Mitchell. That gave him 38. Brought Nick on first down gets to the 30 about 3 yards short of He is a nice change of pace. He's not going to blow you away with speed, but he knows how to find the creases. He is playing with a little motivation. He gets the job done. Throw it on second and three going into the end zone. That was the intended receiver. It will be third and three. A lot of weapons. You have got a half-dozen receivers that account balls for Park Crossing this year. Most of them significant
catches catches. Just inside the 28 trips spinning -- Trips to the near side, Cunningham takes it himself. He has got back corner in the sideline. He is out of bounds. I thought he might have helped the ball. He did the move where he flew like an airplane and held the ball out and got across the goal They're not going to use replay to review that. What an athletic move by Malik Cunningham. So the touchdown makes it 9-0. Lane will try to add the point after and he does. And a quick ten points for Park Crossing on the first two possessions. Watched again. He's going to hit the sideline here and very wisely, he sees the defense coming and he puts on a burst of speed getting inside the 5 at about the 4-yard And he may have stepped out of bounds.
We can see that but I think he might have been really. The official didn't see it so it's not going to get called. What an athletic play. That power has been busy so far. First and 10, geeky their offensive line up and we start with the line. Bush is the center and Lacy is on the left side at guard and tackle respectively. Farkas Wiccans is on the side. And Jones. So up good group but they've got They are down 10. He will get about 4, maybe five and very solid defensive front led by the nose guard. I see him out there. He's fighting injury. Pugh come you mentioned to get the carry. He is their leading rusher but only 3 yards or the quarterback . 789 yards coming into the night and seven touchdowns. He will take it himself. You see how slippery he is, ducked under the tackle. That is what the defensive
guy just's wishes his arm and where did he go. At the 31 first down, Blount, there first run of the night. They should've been a sound effect for that one. We could get our truck to add one. First and 10, Pugh cuts it outside and has some room and gets about 6. Here comes the flag. Deep in the secondary. Patterson had the tackle an illegal block of some kind. Looking bright at the spot on the tackle. He said back it up and I'm tired of seeing my team get backed up so much. Let's back somebody else up. That was their first penalty of the night. Trying to decide where to Mark off the penalty. Apparently that penalty was at the head of the run and taking it from the end of the road. So now people have a first and Holly in his second year, he's been an assistant one several pieces, so the head coach of the
County, that's going to be enough for the first down. He is a good-looking receiver, long, thin, and he is got 51 pitches on the year, 623 yards. He's one of the main targets for And why not. All right. Fifteen on that play. First and 10 at the 22. The got a little bit of a power set. Toney to throw and not toxic and runs. He's got running room across midfield and out of bounds. Close to first down and it is, another one, as they market at the 7-yard line of Park Crossing Crossing. Apparently not. I thought they were going to measure. Look at this run. Toney come you can see the talent that he has. He turned on that Jets and got into the secondary little bit and made a little slit move and got that first down. I've year's this term once already and I'm going to use it again they may use of all night. It seems that every but he has their hand on the ball gets that
prescription pick. You cannot believe to the guy in The big senior, number 6 of the defense event the tackle for the He wishes giving him a hug saying welcome to Montgomery and Two minutes to go . 10-Sarah, Park Crossing. People stay in shotgun all night night. He has hit right after the catch for about a six or yard gain. So the problems of the Thunderbirds had earlier in the season, they were replacing . Only green was the returning player and he looked the smallest of the bunch. Don't tell him that. He thinks he gets picked on for that reason. They've done a good job of defensive backfield so far third and 3 I thought they were going to try to call the lateral . I waited to see if they will blow the whistle and they did. Good call, it's complete. Near the 30. From the backside, that was number 3.
He was in the backfield very quickly. Second and 10, Tony to throw. That is completes I doesn't go anywhere after the catch and a pickup of about 3 and maybe 4. As number 9 was over to make up another third and long. And that is probably going to be the last play of the first quarter. A good one for Park Crossing. They get a 32-yard field goal from Park plate and then at 30 -year-old run. They take a 10-0 lead as we -- We are in the third round of the 6A , Park Crossing on top. The path to the playoffs is brought to impart by jacks. We are all about the South. We start the second quarter with The birds trying to get on the board. They have got it third and 7 and they will throw it. Let's check the number. That is Steve Thomas he made the If you look on the replay , if you seen the ball near. That ball actually hit him in the hands.
A popped out. So now fourth and 7. They have gone for it on fourth down once on this drive so I guess they are 1-1. They've got to get to the 21 for Some pressure, down he goes. Tony is caught and that will go as a fact. Marya Davis and also Langford. Bright was one of the first guys in his face that made him step up and get out of the pocket. You see break they ball rush. He's going to come from behind him and he's going to get caught from both sides . After near touchdown. So that stopped the drive and gives the ball back to Park Crossing. I made a point earlier in the week , and I think we seen early, can force him personally he will nice hole on that side of the offensive line. We will call it a long three. Cunningham throws it in the flat flat. And he will have the first down.
Still gets the first down. First and 10. Broadnax is going to be wrestled down after they the gain of a yard. And the tackle turned into a wrestling match. He actually's did on his. When you get, three points for that? I don't think that the shoulders were square to the ground I will take your word for it. And it is caught at the 20. It is a foot race. Touchdown Thunderbirds. 59 yards on the catch. That was from Malik Cunningham. He just laid that right out on the fingertips. Never broke strong and won the foot race to the goal line. So the lead is 16. About to be 17. The point after. Fans are happy. You've got to understand this is a brand-new school as the kick is good. We will watch it one more time. Just a great throw, great touch on this throw. Obviously I think some confusion confusion, who had the guy going
him to get separation be in the throw was right where it needed Another touchdown for the Thunderbirds. I believe that is 3-3, 3 possessions, three scores. And that was a 71-yard drive and it only took them for plays. We talked about it at the beginning, the explosiveness that Park Crossing had and they just weren't they are. Both of these teams have that explosiveness. This could be a game where the winner or loser comes on how many explosive plays to happen how many they give up. and making plays. Blount had a touchdown catch in the end zone and couldn't hold on. This was going to make the end zone. That is news in itself and up close to the 30 it will be first and 10 for Blount. Twenty-fifth appearance in the playoffs. We have a flag or Dooley. Yes, we do. It is against Park Crossing. I believe that they contacted on
make. I was about to say it was procedure penalties automotive is going to be a re- kick I believe they're going to re- kick it. And some taking the ball at the 28, they're going to back them up 5 yards and have been kick it again. It would be just like Jake Lane . He is already mad. I can tell you he did a kick that in the end zone . I was here one night and he missed the extra point. He missed about two or three out of 50. Let's go see what Kim has. I have Ellis a great from the Alabama Department of Transportation here to talk about something we all need to know about, which is Mickey our Highway safe. Let's talk about your Department Department. the Alabama Department of transportation takes safety seriously. Next week with think getting coming up, we are all concerned about the safety of our residence. I want to make sure that people are practicing safe driving habits so they can get the turkey different -- Did are safe on time. What he doing to make the roads favor. We have areas where we are getting the medium --
And as the holidays approach, any words we need to know. It's the most important thing you can do. Back to you guys. Jake Lane and I don't think that Graham hit the ball well because the tee. It was like one of my shots and goal. Inside the 10 and down to the 5. First down. That is Jones. , 55 yards. That was well thrown football as . Do we have a flag? I see that they have that move the chains. That a flag at about the 36-yard line coming down the better of this is going to be against the defense. It is a sideline warning so that The play is going to count. The next one will be a penalty. of the soup be marked at the 5- 5-yard line. We talked about it, the explosiveness and you cf. there from Blount. They're sick and tired of watching Park Crossing go up and down the field and you see coach Holly trying to inspire the troops. I think he is little upset because some of his players rushed up to the edge of the field on that and one of the
morning was about. So first and goal, Toney will take it himself. Touchdown. Out of the get up and he was going to die him anything on that carry. So the leopards get on the board with 9:40 left in the half. 6 yards away on that touchdown. You are bright, but he was the going to get into the end zone. Let me do this one. Toney. That's all you need to know. Good job. I've been working on that for years. Really, he pretty much did that by himself and then he carried the tackler in the end zone. That kick is good and it is 17-7 with 9:40 to play in the first half. People take a timeout as Blount gets on the board next to their quarterback, Toney. They still trail by 10. Blount stops the bleeding now down 17-7 after that drive. It was one big play and one little play. The big 55-yard strike to set up Toney's 6-yard. And so the leopards will kick off in . A short kick and comes down to the 20. He's got some blocking in front
of him and gets up to the 47. First down Park Crossing pretty want to keep you up-to-date on what is happening around the state with some of the scores in the AHSAA and 7A, they are in the semi final action tonight . So far the latest update that I have is Hoover and Gaston city are tied at 7 and down in Mobile Mobile, it is McGill-Toolen 14 and central Phoenix city 7. Both of those -- The second in a rematch of Lester semi final. McGill-Toolen went on to win and Broadnax on first down gets across to the 48. Hand me is up on bunt Thomasville 15-0 in the second quarter . Lafayette and five, that is a good when into a Mac, both undefeated. It is 14-14 in the second quarter. And then I will court enough that matches the two that we have here tonight. That the low kids just great athlete. If you've seen him play basketball, he's a pretty good basketball player as well. a 6-yard gain on that play. Broadnax has his feet come out
from under him and he will do's a couple. Madison shot through there and make sure that play didn't go anywhere. Watch this on the replay. He just fired through and hit him about the kneecaps. That is all loss of the cups so third and 5. Park Crossing 1 out of 2 on third down conversions. Twenty inside. This is what Cunningham likes to run. This time he is looking to throw throw. He needs a block and another and won't get it. He goes out of bounds. A couple of times earlier, he let him get the edge. That time he can spread in the field, spreading the field, spreading the field, and he didn't have anywhere to go except for out of bounds. Soap will see line. The first time. 'S averaging about 41 yards per punt and his hang time, if he catches one right, he might bring rain, and, boy, we need it it.
A little cloud seeding. Something. Another high end of rant kick in that one goes out of bounds around the 15-yard line. So Blount will get it back and they stop Park Crossing. Of the first time we said that tonight. No return. We will see Toney to get any See if I can find any more score updates here. Piedmont is up on Weaver 15-14. Another good game up at Piedmont Piedmont. Austin Lee's muscle Shoals 14-0. And the net leads ten or 13-7 . And I believe we have up like that that is going to go against Blount for early movement . That will be first and 15 at the 10 so the leopards have an extra 5 to go here I'm not sure exactly. Couple of players, one on either side. If you want to know where to go
after the game, we just tell them Baumhowers. That's where you go. So from the 10, first and 15. Over the middle and caught. Jeremiah Lowrie the linebacker, almost did a great play on that. That was just out of his reach and great concentration by Burroughs to make that catch. Second and 1 , gets the first down. That might've gone for 7. Patterson over there. So first down from Blount at the 33. Winner of this game gets either Opelika or Spanish for it. I think there and a 0-0 game right now. Just like in the backyard. This one is out of bounds. Way over the head of the intended receiver. I tell you when that is not 0-0, Beauregard, who gave up and early touchdown to Carol to go down 7-0 and has scored 28 unanswered. They're up 28-7 in the second quarter. A couple top three teams in the state, at least his of the last ranking. 7:05 left to go in the first half.
A ten-point lead for the Thunderbirds. Outstanding. I see the score. It is not 0-0 Opelika anymore. It is no 7-3 Opelika. What a nice move. Look at this. This was going to go. 67 yards, touchdown Blount. I'm that was just an escape route. He does help Tony out to keep from getting sacked. Here's a flag at about the 16- 16-yard line. There is a flag back at the 16- 16-yard line. Looks like that. Talking to Blount players I know they're going to say touchdown. I guess they will Mark that off on the extra point. How quickly this game has turned around. And that kick is up and good. Just like that, we've got a three. Game with 6:49 ago. Two big plays have got to Blount There was one missed tackle. There are two missed tackles. And now watch the interference. It was a Blount coach. It was out of the screen on that that.
We did see it and that means that Blount will kick from the 25 . So we will see, can come you're just getting us some information information. We've had quite a few warnings along the sideline a Park Crossing side. They're watching very closely. That's a safety issue. You know why, because he's going need to worry about whether or not he's going to run into somebody. That is why they have those big wide white boxes on the sideline sideline. If you ever wonder why that white stripe is there, it is for Especially when the plays coming toward the sideline. I've seen and officials get hurt Apparently coaches spoken. He has had enough. He needs to stop the coaches. They're the ones that got in trouble. Green on the return and they will start this drive in good field position. In Blount territory at the 46. Watch it again. It is going to be coming down right at the and of the team box box, rid of the box.
He is telling the runner to come on into the path of the official who is not watching him better don't think is an official member of the coaching staff in the distance penalty from the kickoff. He has got room across the 30 inside the 25. First down. So the penalty on the kickoff. That gives Park Crossing an advantage because the got a great return on the kickoff and it started on the positive side of the field. They are already near the red zone. And that will be a timeout taken by the leopards of Blount. The first night, that Wednesday night, November 30, kicking things off over at Jordan hare Stadium. Will be Hoover? Will it be dancing city is Cinderella? And then you get McGill in central Phoenix city going at it Who we are going to see the first night. I really don't know. You have got the team with the black glass slipper four years and years and you have got to sell it teams including the champion going at it. I tell you, then the fun begins on Thursday and you will have three games Thursday and three games Friday and you and I will
be calling all seven of them. We can do it. We can do it. I am so excited. I am two. I'm very excited last couple of years or more from the going to get to call a game and some of the smaller schools who don't normally could call and give recognition to, it's going to be First and goal at the 9. He is not a very big guy at all. He's a physical runner never gives up. And apparently and Auburn fan. 40 yards for him so far. I think that was a missed medication. Malik Cunningham and his receiver, Tate went out and and nobody in the backfield but Cunningham. He needs help and here comes up flag. He still running and he is loose loose, still loose. And he's going to give back line of scrimmage. Good defense by Blount. That I have a feeling this is going to be holding against something on the Park Crossing line and that is the case. When you start running around like that come he's upset your offensive lineman up because one of those defensive lineman is going to spin off the guy and he
get his arms in the wrong spot and you're going to end up at the holding penalty. That is exactly but happen. I would say that Blount would decline the penalty, and that is This is a chip shot for him. I realize this the sec. thing, especially this time of year, but this one will be about a 24- 24-yard kick. It is from an angle. You've got to kick it from the hash. A good snap and the kick is up and it is through. 5:17 left to play in the first half. We have had a last five scoring drives. Drive might be too strong forward. The longest is 1:2. Hoover and gets and seal not that 7. Ramsey 19 for 20 for minor. The like up 7-3. Muscle Shoals is another type Cinderella type team. Keep an eye on Ramsey. Turner was to lunch at deep. I'm not pulling for anybody necessarily but the Ramsey story
Inner-city school in Birmingham schools have really struggled here in the last several years and here they are, they are possibly at least going to make it into the semi's if they can win tonight. and the Birmingham school, Winona is the Scots for in Scottsboro top-ranked teams for North Alabama. And his son is doing that Scottsboro group. They've been the cardiac kids 7 for coming back in the second half. Especially here in the playoff. Tonic it's not the first down and it will be first and 10 at the 30 Mac . Blomquist on 17-0 early and not just down 6 things to a cup this quick strikes. 6 of ten and 161 yards. Pretty much all season, I've called Park Crossing a couple of number. One of them plays offense and one of them plays defense. Tony on the path of the sideline sideline. Is a caught? Yes. A great diving catch over there. Let's check the number. I believe that number 2. Nice job coming back to the
football. Made a good catch. Thirteen on the play. Tony finds him coming back to the ball up the sideline. Makes a nice grab so the Mark him at the 45, first and 10. Those are some pretty big footsteps. So second and 10. Coach Holly played here in Montgomery and I think he played . Across the middle, complete. Another first down. I believe that is lined up in the slot this time. And almost -- And it was caught. I think it was a one-handed catch. He secured that ball on a tremendous should . That was third and a half yard play. Let's watch the end of this play play. A thinking there's no way he's going to be able to catch the football. The defenders in the right plays and he secures it with one hand . Arm under it, what a play. Unbelievable. And this extra point for the first time tonight gives Blount the lead with 2:57 to play in
the first half. Look at this play. He preaches set and gets the hand on it and keeps control of it and gets it to his body. Gets his arm under the football , unbelievable. And Jalen Patterson , he had perfect coverage. So how do you like that. Blount comes all the way back and now leads it by a. 2120. So there is still about three minutes left on the clock so plenty of time for both of these teams to put points on the board board. Isn't that the truth. Unbelievable. He gets to the 32. And that is where Malik Cunningham and that tapered offense will have it first and and 10. Toney showing how good he has. He was unbelievable. 229 yards in this first half. To passing touchdowns and arrests -- And a rushing touchdown. So all three of these four Blount have come in some way courtesy of Toney. Flag down. This may be on Blount for too many men on the field.
Number 17 just ran off the field and ran all the way over to the bench and sat down. Wasn't me, coach. I'm not really here. Don't panic tension to me. I was just a figment of your imagination so that will be a 5- 5-yard penalty against the leopards and will make it first and 5. He still trying to hide. He's behind everybody. Here I am. He was supposed to be out there all along. It was a false alarm on his part part. At that he might've been doing a It might not have been anything like that but it was funny, nonetheless. Broadnax to the 40 guess he made the tackle? Scott. Yes. Again up a couple I did it will be second and 3. I imagine Park Crossing would look to run out this the clock cannot give it back to Kadarius Toney. What you think? He's got a first down . Fifty-seven was over there to make the tackle. On the screen there, number 70, that is what you call a tank.
330 pounds . Oh, what of play. Oh, my goodness. That was number 19 or is it number eight team. It should be John Deere. That was 19. Watch it again. Like he was shot out of a Canon. So second and 13. Johnny on the spot. That is amended we've heard before from that area down there there. Complete. And out up bounce around the 42. I believe you're right that should be a first down for Josh night. And he also stops the clock with 1:31 play. 16 yards on the play. Oh well thrown ball. A lot of green. Good block right there. Springs him. To get the extra yardage. Smart steps out of bounds and now a timeout for Holly on the leopards I tell you what, you have got to take a timeout to kind of readjust. Both of these offenses really heavily stop themselves up we've seen a couple of nights by the Blount defense or that's part of The lipids are doing the job here . Some halftime scores . Beauregard 42 at Ozark Ozarks sub at the half.
Briarwood and Mortimer Jordan are locked in a battle 0-0 at the half. Opelika 7-3 at the half Ofer Spanish Fort. So wildly talk about the playoffs, let's talk about talking about the playoffs on Facebook. Path to the playoffs Facebook page, you can like our page and watch live streams of our games to catch up by watching archive games and see the schedule of the upcoming games for just give PathToThePlayoffs on Facebook. Now it is downfield. That is Marshall . Anything you can do -- Sorry, like to sing a renowned then. 37 yards on the pass play from Cunningham to Mitchell. Again, that was good coverage. That was really good coverage there was also a really good individual effort by the receiver. The clock is stopped for the second.. I'm not sure why. Look at this throw. Goes down there and that's a great job by the receiver getting under the football and making a play. Broadnax with the 1 yard carry. Remember what I said.
I don't think that Park Crossing months to get the ball back to Blount in this half. So they have to run off a minute here. And try to score at the same time. They've got a second and goal at I think they are about 50 50 percent inside the 10 scoring Cunningham wants a play and I think they're going to wait let the clock were not select take a timeout. Their watching the play clock. He is going to call a timeout right at the one second Mark and remaining. On the game clock. Cunningham was ready to run on the play. That will lead the Thunderbirds with one timeout here in this first half . My goodness, what another great throw and catch. There are about four for each team. They are going to spoil us. Looking at a couple of scores, Jackson leads St. Paul 21-10. No that is going to halftime yet or not. Minor has gone up 20-19 overs RAM see. Andalusia 24 in Tallahassee
nothing at the half. The Bulldogs are tough. We started the season. Medicine Academy is up at the half, by the way. Everybody except for the 7A will be be playing in the semi's. And in a little but about a week and a half, they will be heading Second and goal at the 4. The got the numbers here, a touchdown and five rushes, 75 75 yards another score. They are living up to their billing. He is going to have to go. Did he get in? Broadnax across the line of scrimmage. They are calling it a touchdown. He is calling it a touchdown. The going to say he broke the plane before the ball broke loose. He broke the plane with the football reaching it out and then the ball came loose so it is a touchdown. You will see it again here. Great angle from field level and ground and the ball squirts loose, definitely a touchdown. They say the ruling on the field is confirmed. And we can also confirmed that Park Crossing is back in front 27-21.
Twenty-two seconds left of the way this game is going to present more than enough time for the leopards -- If you are hungry, get what you want to eat at halftime and the future televisions in the second half because you're going to miss something. How about that game last night's Wasn't the crazy. I realize that is probably some people looking at these two quarterbacks, thinking that didn't see them play last night. Lamarr Jackson and he's and stop bad either. Getting up from from our statistician over here. Is he not agree with me on that? That to a whopping 235. That was slow. It is going to go into the end zone. I wish I can make a golf ball stop like that. Of seen them do that a couple of times. I'm sure plenty of lessons and he will be doing it every time you play, which is never, rarely rarely, and you may be taking lessons and I played golf once in the last 18 months, I think. So does it take a plays here or does he score? I don't think that he has a safe
bone in his body. I think he is going to go with this much success he is throwing the football deep to think you're going to see one or two shots here before the half. From the 20 Toney. And an interception. And they are in field-goal range range, Graham. They are in field-goal range. That is Mitchell with the interception. For is a. A backup. Another problem with the jerseys being tucked underneath. We will know here. The first turnover and Blount has an injured player. That is number eight and that is Mitchell a list they have changed it. If a backup, that is number 9. The front of his Jersey, I will vouch for you there. His Jersey was bunched up at the either. There is an injured player and that is number 10 , JaMarcus Alden. It looks like he might have a cramp, which you would think that crimes in November but it is. It is 70 degrees tonight. The weather is supposed to break
Yes, it is. Went and a cool day tomorrow and 30s for the first time. I've got a problem eating my turkey and dressing by the postal I'm kind of glad that we are finally getting some cold weather last year I was at the shores. I really somebody gets travel. Get an opportunity last year we spent most of the week down there. We spent Friday night together at Spanish Fort. and we didn't stay late and not You mentioned that they are in field-goal range. And that was a force to pass trying to make something out of nothing but the talent the half, there is a flag. I believe 11. Martin jumped into the neutral zone. And you are bright, by the way, they are in field-goal range. And not going to call automatic but and he is very good. I think that Park Crossing like to have six instead.
Well thrown football. Well intended for Josh night. Josh night Mac. It will be second and 5. Thirteen seconds left of this little timeout remaining . I've looked out there and there is something on the field right outside the 10-yard line and I thought it was a flag twice. I don't know exactly but it is. and Mullica will take it himself and he gets inside the ten. He gets slung down pretty hard and then I believe that was taken by Greiner and that is enough for the first down so they will stop the clock and now they will get a timeout and they will rush the kicking team onto the field. They're going to call it right with one second left. That was close. So we will see Jake Lamb and look is here. He's got these two guys look at running a similar offense. They are seen some great plate tonight. And they haven't tough task tomorrow of playing at A&M. A nice thing about that game, and Jeremy Johnson gets the start in his final game at charter Stadium. You don't like to see players get hurt and I watch the young man grow up here at Cramton Bowl
I don't know many of them but I got to know many of them. I really felt for him, his time in Auburn. He is just a good strong kid, great personality and it has hurt me a little bit too much but he has to go through. I love the fact that he's going to get the chance timeout for Blount to try to ice the kicker that's going to be fun to watch them and I think he will have success success. I think he will have a good game game. Franklin is going to play like to put Sean white needs to get better. He's obviously the guy that Auburn needs under center to win football games. He played her breast with it was white that everybody saw and loved. You know who we have got next week. I don't know, but I think -- That is not old enough to be coach Garner. That is a joy coach. That is a gentleman that used to coach here in town. Yes, he is now an assistant at Troy and I don't think that they
the comparable but Arkansas state . A lot of talent that will take you to you something right there there, the coaches celebrities as the buzzer sounds. It is good. So three field goals in his first half. A big part of the 30-1 would lead that they will take to the locker room and this 6A matchup between Blount and Park Crossing Crossing. Let's send it down to cam. He told us earlier before the game that these two talented quarterbacks, he was going to be decisions. We've given up some big plays but is going to come down to who makes the fewest mistakes. Smitty Grider, you are right, two big plays. And they got Blount back in this game. It's not because the defense didn't do their job. They were in position but just traffic passes. And we have got a lot happening at halftime. 30-21 Park Crossing. Welcome back. It is halftime and we are here right now with Michael Board held at the mayors office. You're going to give me the title because of this long.
Public information and external affairs director. I'm also a diehard Park Crossing Thunderbirds fan. They're the neighborhood school were live. Some really proud of them.

We've got a few people down the field that going to be represented and also playing in Division I at some point in their future. Lots of action and if you just hold on for another 30 minutes and -- It is 24 minutes. Coach Greiner has got these guys
I've been watching them ever since the summer so I think they And they have got to go down. Thank you so much, Michael. We appreciate it. Stay with this. More action coming to you from the Cramton Bowl at halftime right after this. Welcome back. Is halftime at the Cramton Bowl. It is a good one. Don't go anyone -- Don't go everywhere. Was sick of coming up in a few minutes the first with me I have Randy Jencks. He's with Baumhowers, one of her a makes this broadcast possible. Let's talk a little bit about Baumhowers. I'm glad to be here supporting one of the 81 teams. We've been here since 1981 feeding those great wings and we talk about the greats by city can. Perfect gift cards that make the terrific gift for your shopping list. We are the perfect plays to get the -- I want to mention the website because we have front had that yet. All that information about Baumhowers restaurant and all we Visit our website
and then come up to Baumhowers and enjoy a good meal and a terrific atmosphere. We think you for feeding the crew. Baumhowers takes care the crappy day. Thanks so much. You heard that, get your stuff for holidays and tailgating for Baumhowers. Were not going to enjoy the Park Crossing band. We cover what matters. Graham Dunn and Mike Peacock with your here at Cramton Bowl. I have did look back at the scoreboard to make sure that we It was a bit of a shoot out. That is for sure. We definitely had some fireworks in that first half but it was a lot of fun. We tried not to oversell the quarterbacks, but I don't think we did. Maybe we over sold them a little Maybe we didn't talk good enough about them. It has -- We knew that these two guys were going to be the go to guys. The kicker for Park Crossing has coming and he was pretty good. We've seen him in Montgomery . There is a 42-yard field goal
for the first four and then here is Malik Cunningham, low and behold one of those first quarterbacks. And then a perfectly thrown football for another long score. Park Crossing look like they might be jumping out and then here comes Blount. Kadarius Toney a long pass here. Gets him down in scoring range. He says I will just take it myself can guys but this may be the play of the game. This tackled there, another missed tackle here and then Mr. Mr. Mauldin goes the difference. There is another field-goal. This is the play of the first half. The one-handed grab then goes and gets in the end zone. And then the pick . That would set up the final playoff the first half that gave lead. Let's check in with Coach Ollie with cam. Hey, coach. You and I talked earlier about defense being important in this game and just two teams a great team in group of people. We've just got to go out right now and we talk about
facing adversity head-on. It is a good football team and I just did up to be a great game. It just got to -- We will let you get back to it, coach. Good luck. Coach Holly and his leopards down by 9 . Jake Lane right now is probably the difference in the game. Jake Lane is to have a weapon like that at any level of high school football committee of guy out there and kick the ball through the uprights, sometimes from a great distance, which he did from 42 and you said he had a 50-yard earlier in the year. It is just a huge weapon to have have. Look at the stats. Just drop down to the fourth line. That will tell you everything. 287-285. They have a big eventual passing it off the arm of Kadarius Toney for Blount and you look at that, 287-285, 131st downs to 11. And one stat that is not on there is turnovers. There is one and it lead to
three points for Park Crossing at the half. We will see how big that three points adds up at the end of this game. Blount will get the football to start this half. The winner moves into the semi finals next week and Brett they've applicable will have to wait and see what the other game Opelika, a belief we had Spanish port on top and they went up 107 107. And it is a very to football game in the bowl. Both of those cinnamon come fever all high school football -- And McCracken. Jack when kicks off to start us. The second half, and as he's done all night . First and 10 at the 24 Kadarius Toney, the quarterback for Blount and we had some people were talking at halftime about what he might do in college. I really since sometimes you might go some are hoping to play quarterback but I don't see him not playing quarterback. I don't see how he could do anything but quarterback. You never know if what people do in Florida. If you want to know the truth the penalty goes to Florida, he
is committed outside. First play from scratch is a 2- 2-yard loss. I'm going to have my binoculars out. That is a different hotline. The Duchess the hit. Intercepted. That was a great job, Graham. He was on the outside receiver and we saw that developed, he stepped right in front and a great interception, great play for Park Crossing and puts them in business deep in Blount's territory. That is two consecutive pass interception -- Go back to last pass and then that is the first half in the second half. That one gets away and Cunningham, we are going to have He's going to get lucky. They're going to call a penalty on Park Crossing because that all was throwing back around the Cunningham a study from looking and I think that Smitty Grider had called timeout. You are bright. That is even better if you are a Park Crossing fan. That is a penalty instead. They saved the play with the timeout. That was incredible
. On the staff. Jamie Debose was on that staff who is in the 7A final. Then you have the Blackman brothers on that staff. That is the first down run inside the 15 down to the 13. That is a heckuva coaching staff staff. and amazingly could not win the big one. It just somehow they had their chances. Pretty incredible. That was the run of Hoover and prep the kind of started.. 63 yards rushing now for Broadnax. He shut down again. They just gone up 14-10. Kevin Kennedy on the tackle. Second and 9. What a coaching staff. Grider was also on the coaching staff here at the high school before going onto Beauregard. He really set up what Beauregard was like. I'm glad you said that. He couple regarding the position Broadnax inside the 10 and it will be third and about six . I don't know that the Thunderbirds here are playing
clock. They don't seem to be quite as in figure hurry as they have been for at least in the first half. We played two minutes of the third quarter. Black is got to come back. Is got somebody wide open. He stuck going to throw to. Is going to run out of bounds in believe the Park Crossing was in motion. So smart enough not to throw the past, or even though it would've Hey Siri hey Siri hey Siri bullet pass from Cunningham and I believe that is number 4, Josh night with the score. Very good pass . Thread the needle but that one right on the money . 14 yards and all of a sudden it is 15-point came at the point after coming. We will be back to Montgomery. Stay tuned here on Raycom. They start the early here at Park Crossing. She sang leave me alone, dad, I want to watch the game. I speak baby. Here comes the lanes kick.
This time not at the end zone. Is taken at the 2. And in a hurry. There is the flag coming in late late. Let's watch the hit on Malik Cunningham as he gets rid of the He gets this play in reverse, upside down, inverted. On his head as the case may be. A pinpoint pass, very well thrown football. How about the night for Josh night Mac , two catches and two touchdowns. 73 yards and two touchdowns. The sufficiency at it's best pick you got basically the entire second half to go. We pointed out early on , the flight did go against Blount, the scoring the Park Crossing has been doing and the player. Here comes Lowrie. Tony is in trouble and he saw he zone and people still take the sack right around too. He made a smart move it you are right. He thought he was going into the end zone and when he went to his left from he saw. Jersey right in front of him.
And he went down at the 2-yard line. SoA smart move by Kadarius Toney , second and ten, loss of 20. Who got it. The people may have jumped back on top of that. Blount this make the recovery and they save another turnover, which would've been the third consecutive possession. They gained a couple of yards on the fumble. They still is got about 17 to go go. I think that somebody grabbed this ball? Is Lowrie the one who drifted out. I think he ripped it out of there, right there. I think somebody posted out. Like I said, that actually gained a couple of yards on the fumble. So it will be third and 17 and I noticed the Park Crossing has change their coverage . They're not playing the zone that they were playing earlier. What a great play. What a great defensive play and you have got our player here, the receiver for Blount came down very awkwardly on one of his ankles. That was cam green that made the play. Collin woods.
He immediately when he hit the ground, he came down very awkward. You may not want to watch this. Watch the play. It could not tell. When the player is right there , he came down on that ankle. Sorry, folks. I am a little squeamish . He came down hard. Actually green came down on his left leg and I'm hoping it's just a sprain. It think he's actually sitting up now. He still in a lot of pain. ThatHad a strained a before and a lot of times than a break. And sometimes you suggest, your foot is an awkward angle and if a defender comes down and up like that, it is tough. They're going to see him how much weight he can put on a peer. Of going to say not much . Actually he's doing okay. He's doing all right. 6'3", 185, the wide receiver. So maybe that is going to turn out okay. He is walking much better than I But in the meantime, the lipids are going to have to punt out of Kyle casts will hunt the second punt of the night.
The second one for 30 when yards yards. It did have good hang time. It did stay up in the air long enough for coverage to be there. I don't think Park Crossing even Jackson Tate is deep and he is standing at about the 40. This one is kind of Andover and and take a run it down. He is a little bit of a Lane and gets to the 20 and inside the 20 where the Thunderbirds will have it, another great chance here inside the 20-yard line of Blount all pretty up by 16. 37-21. You know, if Blount is going to make a difference in this game, they have got to flip the field. They have been kind of put in depth on both of their possessions. They have the turnover on their first possession and then they got pinned deep by penalty on the kickoff. And then the second Park Crossing has started in positive territory. Both of their possessions now on this half. We will see what happens on this Broadnax with the carry. He will get about 4. The unsung hero, sometimes those
this guy might be it. You are right. The clock is running, 7:40 left third quarter. Three wideouts on this side and one on the far side. That is take. Cunningham will throw wet looking left. Touchdown. I didn't even see that pass. The pass was thrown so hard, I totally missed that. Mitchell didn't and that is the one that matters most. They have scored again 43-21. It had some his zip on it and again, throw and is going to see him break on the front opening right between just before want and with another coming from the middle. Perfectly thrown and there is a flag on the extra point. The kick was good but I don't know if it's going to be -- Is going to be off-center on Park Crossing. And that is going to be on the Thunderbirds. So they will do it again. What a change in this game. You have two great come back from the midway through the second quarter. They took the one point they 21- 21-20. Since then Park Crossing
will have scored 24 on answered and that is the case. They now they do 44-21 with 7:27 still to go here in the third period turnovers the defense, big for Park Crossing and then the kicking game once again not working too well for Blount. Average start position 25-yard line. That is Blount's 25-yard line. Not Park Crossing. That is three possessions. So Lane will kick now leaping it by 23 . You're looking at cutting him and his numbers , getting a well-deserved rest. 10 of 14, Hunter 99 yards and a rush for. Not a bad night and he still has a quarter to go. A quarter and a half. And some running room. He has got a seaman who get out close to the 45. So a good starting position this time for Blount. That is what they need. Nichols with the tackle. 34-yard return. I believe that was Nichols. It might've been Josh 9 that made catch.
We do know is that mold and had returned and that is number 4 , Nate Mac. I would say Tony doesn't need to get it all at once. The way he can throw downfield, why not. He seen a couple of big plays. And he was looking deep and instead he is going down. All of a sudden Park Crossing getting a great defensive past. They up in the years back in the I'm going to give Nichols the credit for the sack of the fourth sack of the night. Loss of 6 on the play. Will be second and 16. I don't care how good of a quarterback you are if you don't , it's that going to make a difference and all of a sudden Park Crossing front seven is wreaking havoc Lamarr Jackson just ask him if you don't have time to throw can There is a flight coming in from deep in and in the defensive backed field. I think that is from the going to be some kind of interference. Way back in the back. It does go against Park Crossing
Crossing. The dot have an automatic first down on pass interference so done about seven or eight. Short of the first down. That you could replay. To the call that a holding a no pass interference? Maybe so. Let me see if I can get this out out. The last five attempts by Tony, two interceptions, two sacks and incomplete. Now they're still talking about this penalty I was going to say where he was marking it, they should be a yard short in this case. So second and 1 at the 47. But Tony has struggled in some of it by his own choosing. He will throw it again and instead over the middle, complete. Malden, down inside the 30 to the 29. And he made a great move, maybe defender miss and got the inside move so good that he lost his footing. and they been able to get the ball up the field, they make something happen. He was behind and made a great
move there. First and 10 at the 30 for Park Crossing, another pass over the middle and that is complete for about 5 yards. S Burroughs is got the catch. At this point you figure Park Crossing is laying off a little bit. They are mixing that coverages and there playing some man this happened we didn't see in the first half. And now they are mixing, they've The pick up the blitz on the corner and Tony is going to run right to it and get out of bounds for first down at the 13- 13-yard line. The Thunderbirds that time brought the corner on a blitz see it again here and we didn't quite see it in the camera here. Tony knew what to do once he had the outside and he stepped out. So first and 10 at the 13. 5:30 to play in the third quarter. They flood the second there and he will take it himself. Tony Hart at the 5. That is Jackson Tate. Coach told us that he would see some time on defense tonight and open field tackle on a very good
Jackson Tate. There is a flag at the 22. This is coming back. It will be holding and that is a huge penalty because it is marked off back at the spot. If you're an offensive lineman, you love to have a quarterback Cunningham and sometimes you hate having a quarterback like Kadarius Toney and Malik Cunningham because their ability difficulty when you are trying to hold onto a block and sometimes to get those unintentional holding penalties just trying to keep the then vendor in front of you from getting to it. And he goes down again, this time at the 40. And I believe that was Lowrie again. Lower is going to start paying rent in that Blount backfield. He has found something he likes. Yes, he has. This is the case of the pocket just collapsed again. You see some stunning by the defensive line on -- Of Park Crossing. You see the cross that on this near side where the guys, the
one London one number one point and the other lender went the other side of the duped around causing difficulty for the offensive line. There going to throw it deep. He's got a man complete. Down at the 5 and it is not enough for the first down the it's going to make this a much more manageable third down. We have seen Park Crossing get beat deep a couple of times. This is a the case for guy guy just running by over there. I think that they are in the combo coverage and he just ran by him on the outside and you see that if you're in the position as a defensive back, you are just like, oh. That is Jones with the catch be Cameron green. Third and 3. Twenty looking to throw. For troubled in the backfield and he will get to the line of scrimmage. He dove to the 5 but it is going to be fourth and a yard. No doubt he will go for it. Trailing by 23 with just under four minutes to go in the third quarter.
Are they going to take a timeout timeout? No, they are not. This'll be the third attempt on fourth down. Park Crossing coaches telling the guys stay on side. Don't give them one here. Tony takes it himself. He's got one in the middle and are they going to call it a touchdown? Yes. Touchdown leopards. No review. It was the back of the end zone, the back judge made the call and you call the UC. It's a touchdown. So Blount gets into the lead of Park Crossing. Get a chance to watch again and that is a big play. That was fourth down. Alvarado Amaya will try the extra point. It might be that he has got that under his hand from our angle. The extra point try is good. So another touchdown pass for They stuck at work to do. They trail 44-28. The got 3:20 to left in this third period The fans on hand at Cramton Bowl having a good time, especially Park Crossing. 44-28. Just watch this again.
And I will let you beat be the judge. We will they've done that. We bake your pardon for that. That is not intentional. No come it is not. That been very successful offensive lead and they get stopped in this half. In the back their last three possessions of the last two, they scored. There at their own 45's team is get something on the sideline. We have some major heroes over Park Crossing high school. The driver was crossing the best to rock 'n roll. And he went to check the driver and her head was down and he stared the bus of her to safety into a ditch bit about that time bar instance up and pulls the emergency brakes of these kids up and recognize for the bravery and quick actions. It just wanted to give them a shout out because that was thinking from the students. by all means, thank you. As take breaks three across the 40 to 43. That is an incredible story. That is incredible story. For kids. Schoolkids to have the presence of mind to be up to do something
those two young people and kudos to them for preventing something that could've been catastrophic. How many lives to they say? First and 10 at the 13-yard catch. We had a similar situation that kind of went the other way . The bus driver had a medical episode and it was elementary kids. Cunningham got on the backfield. The initial hits, were going to give them credit for that. That is 34, which is McCann's. Seventy else might of cleaned up up, number 7 for or number 8. Some scores from around the state now, we see central Phoenix city , excuse because I'm sorry. Central Phoenix city is up. They are tied back down with McGill-Toolen. Up now 21-7 . Cunningham goes down again for a This is the way that this game has gone. That is the app and flow. Swung back and forth a couple of So that will be third and about 14. I saw an incredible score on the earlier. Austin has been up on muscle Shoals the entire ballgame. At least three scores and that
set of scores that were just showed that game tied at 27 so muscle Shoals has been a huge come back Cunningham takes it himself. Can't get to the Mark. That is not necessarily what his coaches want to see him do. Cunningham Wiggins to go offense been at the other way around. He will be about through 4 yards Watch this. He's just going to Lori a shoulder and that is not necessarily what you want to see if your quarterback so punting situation for Jake Lane. Second time they that punting tonight and they're going to down inside the ten or 15-yard line and people gathered at the 15-yard line, where the leopards - 44-28. OfA 35 seconds to go in the third period and you mentioned muscle Shoals. Talk about Cinderella. They have come out of nowhere. They beat up very good in very highly ranked Oxford team in the shocked everybody. They won against last week.
They went down at least 21-0 and they have come back and tied the football game and 27. That is incredible. McGill-Toolen in central Phoenix city. He would figure it would be. Twenty shotgun. And here comes the rush. Lauria there and he is going to run away from us but people still get out of bounds at about a yard loss in some time over there on the sideline. I think that might be for Park Crossing. Is that Nichols he was slow to get up and I think he is a little bit woozy. OrOur maybe not. He took a shot over there. Let's watch it. He is so elusive. Watch Nichols here. He got faked and took out the official as Tony went out of bounds. Second and 10. For a quick update, McGill has gone have central 28 this 28 with 7:58 left in the game. What a game. Tony in trouble again. Runs out of it and gets a block. He will get the first down across the 35, close to the 40.
What a player. Twenty-five on the play. Players make plays. And Kadarius Toney is definitely And will he be doing this for Florida next year? I would say probably. Yes. Seventeen seconds left in the third quarter. Holly looking for a spark. He has got a spark but he is going to be just quarterback to make some more of those runs right there if they trail 44-28. Three wideouts on the near side and they throw it on a quick hitter and that is gobbled up. By the quarterback. And that should be the final play of the third quarter. He comes over to make the stop and we are headed to the fourth quarter. The thunder but stick advantage of a couple of turnovers and they extend their lead. Lounge comes back with their own Right now it is Park Crossing on top 44-28. Back with more here on Raycom. 44-20 as we start the fourth quarter
. Kadarius Toney in the blood offense on the field. They have second and 5 of their own 45. That got to make up the deficit and the final 12 minutes and again, we have got a flag. The whistle stops the flag. This is going against Blount. When you get a chance for those of you who are producers of your for you tonight. You don't have to show any other happened here in my, Ray a performance. Six penalties on the leopards. 55 yards. Now second and 10. And a quarter to go. One man in motion. Going deep again. Caught at the 10 and third for Mark them at 14. Actually that was just a great pass. It was good coverage in a perfectly thrown ball. One of the players came across went for the SWAT and missed it. And it went right into the basket where he threw it, right
in the clowns mouth. It was just perfectly thrown. Right on the money. 4-6 yards. This result for the Florida gators have this guy committed. He didn't need to leave because this one is not over. Not by any means it from the 14 . They put him in the backfield that time of at the pickup of about 3. It is almost just to show you that they can run the football. Throwing it so much. But they have been successful. That has got to be right at about 3:40. There he goes again, that has got to be it was going to be a facemask. That he was just the arm was going to come across and grabbed He does pick up about eight and it will be third and 1 from the five. The lone setback, big hit. He's going to get the first down . I think he felt forward to get it. Is that unpolished, was McConico of their to make the stop. Ill be first and goal now at the 4. I would say the one difference between these two teams, although Park Crossing has the lead, when the leopards have gotten the ball outside the 10,
they put touchdowns on the board pits of that right now is a big part of why they are in this one one. 44-28. The going to bring and at different running back. And Samuel Wilson, number 23. He is going to be a blocker and Tony will get close to the goal line. Is going to be a yard short. It will be second and goal. The clock continues to run. Picked got just over ten minutes A touchdown here will make this a much different game going into Obviously you're going to go for it if you can't score on the first three downs. For down territory for the leopards. Tony kicks it outside. That was a come fly with me move freight there. He wanted to make sure he got into the end zone I didn't know you like Frank Sinatra but I like it. I think there was a Michael Jordan highlight tape film that was called come fly with me. And you mentioned Michael Jordan and that brought that to mind. It looks like they are going to go for 2, a ten-point game. This would make it a one possession game within a two-point conversion.
So they will try the two points as they lead the kicker on the sideline. Rolling left, Tony throws it in. Talked and got it. It's only good for 2 but it is a It is an eight-point game with 9 9:D1D121 to go. Here is the touchdown. Watch this leap . I'm flying. I wouldn't know anything about that. I tell you there could be some ESPN height lights in this game tonight, some SportsCenter top tens in this one tonight. We've had some great plays . Too incredible athletes at quarterback and some incredible athletes in the support cast. You are right. And we have had a lot of fun bringing it to you. They're not bringing it to you yet. 9:51 to go. And eight game now that was 26 just a little while ago. You are right. We have got a final. And 17 in that game. I will let you do the honors. McGill-Toolen the defending champ is going back to the championship game. They have to be in central Phoenix city 35-21 with 14 unanswered points after central had thought back to tie the game
21 pits of congratulations to McGill-Toolen as they return to the 7A championship game. So they will be playing not this following Wednesday. That ball was kicked right into an upswing I think that that was 81. And he did a great job of cradling the ball and falling on it. It was smoking when I got to him him. And I have a correction. Will make that in a second. Look at this. That was a line drive. Got a correction. We show the score earlier, That was out is incorrect is the score has been posted now is a final, Austin 27 muscle Shoals 21 pits Austin is in the semi finals. First and 10 , carries for a yard yard. Wenonah has speeded Scott's borrowed from 9-28 so upset there. Up in North Alabama, first and second of the state. Trying to update as many scores as we can as we go to the rest of this quarter. Park Crossing in no hurry. They've got the lead and the
ball. Cunningham looking and friends out of trouble. Not the second man. He's going to go down for a sack sack, 57 is there and that is medicine for the sack. That just took too long for anything to develop and by the time he decided to run at the defense had kind of close the gap. Rushing lanes were closed and he Madison . I don't know that Cunningham just didn't see him but he held his ground. He did. Third and 12. This is a big play. For receivers over to the left and he will throw it to the near side and it is short. Maybe through a little too quickly try to hit Jackson take over here on a little come back row and I think he threw it may be a little too soon or maybe take roundabout a little little too deep . That was one of those throws to a spot and unfortunately for Park Crossing, there was no. In the spot. So Jake Lane is on the punt and Blount is ready to get the ball back. With a little over eight minutes
to go. And a chance to tie. Who would've thought that about That is going into the end zone. For a 53 -- That is the first and he's got in the spin the ball and it started about 3 yards too far. and that myths out to 33 yards because the and of the 20 but here comes Blount. They trailed by 8 of they've got What a night for that young man as Kadarius Toney , he's trying to bring his team back and picked got a chance here as we watch some of these plays. Check this out. Rushing touchdown and back in the first half, here is another big-play. Got good support out of his receiver. And this is just a great play on the other ran. Then he looked like Superman. 16 of 24, 342 yards. Two touchdowns. And took more touchdowns with his legs. And now he's got his chance to tie the game. He was down about three times and he just kept his legs going . And almost broke free.
Watch it one more time. It looked like he was stop there State on his feet and didn't go down again. About four more yards. It is caught. Can he get to the end zone? Yes. Touchdown. No flags . Brian, first catch of the night. And once again , that is going to give him 413 yards passing in this game. It is my math right. 413 yards. I have in my contract that I can't be asked to do math. There learning up for 2 to try to tie it. He just ran by another defender . He got open and there are all kinds of flags everywhere. They're going to call interference on the Thunderbirds . Steve Thomas. They were going after each other but it's going to go against the defense and in that case. They will move that half the distance . I don't know if he is hurt or got his feelings hurt. I think a little bit of both. I think he wrenched his hip a little bit. A little bit of a mismatch height vice on that outside. And we have got a timeout and Blount is going to call it.
The coaches came running out of the field to get the timeout. Obviously a huge call here . The thing about it is there is a football game. Yes. Eighty-six points. One of these teams is moving on to the semi finals and eventually to Jordan hare Stadium at the super 7. November 30, December 1. December 2. The first game will be the 7A championship. I think we know to. Abruptly Cooper was pulling away . People half the last -- He is up 35-7. Don't think there's any way that I hope you like orange and black because that is going to be a bit of it there. McGill-Toolen orange is a little bit different than the Hoover orange. Magill will be looking forward to repeat and her will be looking to move back to the top after being away for a little while. It was odd not seeing them in the championship last year. It was. It was. Both of those programs -- Tony will take it himself. And barely touched. Here comes a flying. What is this flag going to before.
If it is against Park Crossing, they will wave it off and they 50 points and that is the case. Let's start all over again, shall we. 7:41 left and we are tied at 44. Right back where we started. How about that. So the left its make up 826-point deficit in a quarter and a half. This is incredible. That is subject consecutive turnovers, went and the first half and want to start the second. Just amazing. Truly amazing what we are watching here tonight. I said earlier and you've heard this cliché over and over again. Players make plays and Kadarius Toney as is that the other player that Blount has because he's helped the supporting cast that is really helped them out tonight but he has been the guy. He has been the catalyst that has make plays tonight . That is just another 39 seconds. A whopping 39 seconds. Well, you have to wonder about These two defenses have been out here a lot.. They will kick off for the Park
Crossing 45. Do you try an onside kick here? Why not. Or do you just kick it into the end zone. They're not going to just let it And put the ball at the 20. Park Crossing has got to get something going here. They need to sustain a drive in that guy right there is going to already has. He has had a great game as well. Don't forget about Malik Cunningham. Look at this run. And a perfectly thrown ball for another touchdown. And then yet another. Not quite a touchdown. Not quite a touchdown but the very well Pro. And he has got a couple of zips and the coverage. And their troubles continue here as Cunningham goes down. Excuse me, Broadnax goes down for a loss. I daresay -- Actually no gain right at the line of scrimmage. Blount has got there were years. Back. They have got momentum on their side right now and they are trying to keep it from shifting back over second and 10. Cunningham AA and then it closes
Somebody came up from behind and I believe that is 18. I believe you are bright. Number 18 came from the outside and all the way around play and got locked up apply and then cutting have decided to run and he came straight in from behind So third and 10. Have you noticed also about the passing lanes have been nonexistent here lately. He will throw it deep. Jackson Tate has got it. It is a foot race. Twenty, ten, touchdown. I look for flags and I don't see any. I don't see any. You know, Graham, that is two times in the last couple of drives that they have used a smokescreen up for receivers to the left and one to the right and they have thrown it Jackson Tate's way both times and let them he did the good job of getting open and running under the football. I thought for a second that was an under thrown pass and maybe
it was a little bit . You see the speed. That's what it needed for Tate to get through. A good point. And another 32nd driver so . 51-44 . Park Crossing back on top. They're going to take a timeout and try to regroup. I need a drink of water. We will be back. tonight's game is brought to by Baumhowers. Stop by and bombers location across Alabama and puts himself in your mouth. The man is not full but it feels like it pitiless you prune earlier and we but we have some leftovers. It will be first and 10 at the 20. Graham, we've got a difficult job tonight the picking the Baumhowers play of the game. The can't ticket now. Usually by this time in the fourth quarter, six minutes left left, we are pretty sure what the play is going to be. We may have to do. I'm telling you, this has been incredible. Or we could wait until tomorrow and watch the film again.
51-44. If you're not just joining us, first of all where have you been and second of all strap on your seat well. We are not done yet. Is been Toney versus Cunningham. Get yourself a bag of popcorn and assault and watch the rest of this one. People see what Tony has got up the screen -- Obviously been a screen pass. Just a safety valve over there and everything is downfield and he is standing there in the flat flat. Throw to make him I will get you He gets 18. I would say the clock is affect the quite frankly it is not. 6:09 left. The way these two teams are going up and down the field, they need about 15 seconds. From the 39. Tony -- Toney. They flood the right side. And he is going to take it himself. He is got running room. He Texas way out to the 45 in the 46. I see a flight coming. Yes , you did. And that would be a facemask. I am not sure . The Blount coaches say it is.
The officials agree. So that will give them five more and a first down, I believe. They don't need to go. One final know, we talked but this game earlier tonight and it Five pulled away from Lafayette and 53-20 so the perfect season for Lafayette wins tonight and here are some more scores. Look at Ramsey. Ramsey pulled over. From -- Opelika we already said and McGill, we already said. Hoover up big I'm gets in city. First and 10, picking his way for a couple. He took a Lake. Is that Tarver? I believe it is. I will say hello to an old friend Larry strain in handy because they defeated Thomasville tonight 36-16 is the . Everybody except the 7A is heading to the semi's. And one step away from the super Inside Park Crossing territory. Tony looks to throw and caught. Heat is still on his feet and they have got to wrap up. That is Collins who live a
marking of the 31 and that is enough for the first down. If you are defender back tonight tonight, you are going to want to forget this game. It is been a tough night. This is a great throw from Tony. He knows his receiver and, by the way, folks, if you will remember earlier in the third quarter, Colin sports went down to the thought could have been a catch right there. They will only get a couple. That is better than a loss because anybody else would've taken one and instead it will be second and about nine. Unbelievable game. It really is. It could come down to who has the football and their hands at the end of the ballgame. 447 yards . Twenty attempts at 89 yards. Two touchdowns rushing. A pretty hefty night. Here comes the rush. There goes Tony. Outside he goes. A nice tackle. a very nice tackle and it is 13 over there. That is Stephen Thomas. That might have been a
touchstone if it doesn't make that stop. I don't think that there was anybody that was over there. Watch it again. He should up and down twice. Once right there are months right there. Just is so athletic with those big guys coming at him, he was able to duck out of the tackles. Third and 3 . Over the middle, caught first down right at the 15. And it should be woods. And that was the fastball from Kadarius Toney. He needed to set that one in there to get that one to his receiver and did. Got the first down and move the chains as they move toward at least attempting to tie this game. In the end zone, wide-open touchdown. That is boroughs. He just Maple stuck move and left the defender go by and stepped over the goal line. Fifth passing touchdown . With 3:38 left. Into the end zone he goes. I'm telling you, I can't remember, at least in the Stadium watch a game like this. Truly remarkable. The extra point try. It is good from -- We have eclipsed pits combined in this game
. I don't think that they are finish. I doubt it. So 3:38 to go and we are not it up again at 51. Now, let's go back to the very beginning of this game when Park lead it 20-7 and then I'm doing this from memory, folks forgive me if I slightly miss. Lumpkin back to take a 21-20 lead for Park Crossing scored I want to say 16 unanswered points 37-20. Of went up to 26 points . And this is where we are. This is where we come from a total offense offense, so it. 568, number 4 for Mr. Tony. Number four, Kadarius Toney is responsible for 516 yards. I don't know many high school games he covered in your life. Five never seen this. I've never seen one like this. One guy doing what this young man is doing. And it's amazing that Cunningham
He is. From the 13, green. Gets to the 20 may be. Makes us look like we knew what people are talking about in the open. I am not going there. A great still down. Might have -- I don't know. May be he is just tired. He has been playing defense and chasing those receivers all night. I don't know if it is a cramp or if he turned his ankle. He is acting like he might have turned it. We will see. They need him. They cannot afford to lose there In the meantime Park Crossing has got their work to do again . A tight game, they answer the last time for the big 80-yard pass. First on and more for the 31, maybe the 32 bits set down by Winchester. He has quite had a very good night and Park Crossing as well. One of those unsung guys that you talked about earlier. He just picks his way through the line. Picks his way through their to find some green. He tries to deliver a blow and could not quite get low enough.
ThatThe whistle will start -- Will stop this one. I believe the lineman early. First and 15 Mac from -- For some 15 from the 20 or so. I will say this about Park Crossing to mention the fact that they have really struggled the penalties the last few weeks weeks. They haven't had near near is been a tie and this is a good thing because they would be in real big trouble. That Wiggins penalties for 50 50 yards. That is roughly have yardage they have stepped off against last two weeks. So from 26 , crossing pattern off the hands of tape. Maybe backup, that is number 8. And that is Mitchell. Second and 15. Haven't called his name since may be the first half. And the ball had a little zip on it and probably should've been caught. And you also catch your breath your Park Crossing fan. You see the ball go up in the air like that. Looking to throw and now he will run it. And out of bounds at the 31, 32- 32-yard line. Will be third and long. Not to jinx him, one thing that Park Crossing is that then
tonight's turn the ball over were as Blount has 2. Freight now the Thunderbirds need 8 and they also need to move the sticks as if just to get the defense a minute to rest with 2:51 to go. Oh, my goodness, if this game goes into overtime, we not leave until tomorrow morning. Cunningham. Instead he is trained to run and he is run down. That is smart and play. That will count as a sack back at the 30. It is only a yard. That is about a 3-yard loss of the third and 10. Watch it again. He had tape on this near sideline. You can see him in the picture. He decided not to make the throw throw. And so Jake Lane maybe the most important of his high school career right here . They will send him deep and went The clock is running. Two minutes left. No rush. What a bomb. All the way back to the 11th
the drop the football. And Pall Mall didn't will try to escape and he will be down and probably -- That was a howitzer of a pump. Help of 58 yards. And make it to return. That will market at the 13. He said Lane may be that one looked like he is pretty adept at both. Two times he has been Blount inside the 20-yard line, actually the 15. He's got a 51 yarder and a 58 yarder. Now it is that Park Crossing defense that has to come up with ball back or send it over time. Tony has been electrifying here in the second half. Throws one over the middle. They had the defense set and they put looking for that play. They set up to run that route You know what if he doesn't get a hand on that ball, it is six. Second and 10, Tony. Tries to run and does so the first down across the 25 to the 28. Stop the clock to set the chains
1:38 to go. The story of Tony continues to be written in this game. They might've brought the linebacker straight up the gut and 20 ran right where he came from. 112 yards now for the senior quarterback. The clock is moving again. Tony ducks and tackle. Finds a man, complete. And he needs to get out of bounds and they push him out of bounds across midfield. Right for bound to the 45-yard line. Actually it was not across midfield. It is the 45 of Blount. That does stop the clock and moves the chains with 1:16 to go go. As you watch it, the catch and the run. You were wondering if for getting out of bounds, and he did. Here comes Tony skipping a tackle, not the second one. The tackle made by Carson tape and he is slow to get up. That is not what you want to see For Billy anybody else for that matter.
That will be a timeout taken by Blount. 1:07 left and they have to look at this I believe or is he just tired. Is he cramping? No, it is his ankle. Watch him here. He turned that right ankle. You are bright. Let's see what kind of effect that has on him. That stick a shoe off and he is saying, no. Oh, my goodness. How huge is this. He is saying -- I don't know what he is saying. I think that they want a tape jump on him and they have to get that the put somebody in here but I don't think they're going to be able to -- There comes the backup quarterback. Is that number 3. That would be Marcus Wiggins if that is who it is. I see a sophomore, Darrell Williams, listed as the quarterback. But I didn't see any -- Anybody else listed as a quarterback that I believe -- My roster has Wiggins, number 3. So that super he's going going on here. He's got an empty backfield. That is boroughs and he is going down. There was a flag and it is a
dead ball. Is going to be a false start, I believe. That is a. For Blount. Because that was going to be a sack and instead they will produce 5 5 yards, but they get to keep that down. So boroughs has taken the snap. While I'm sure they are trying to get ankle of 20 tape on that sideline. Trying to keep an eye over there there. Seven. He's now on Blount. They will reset the to 1:07. Now second and 14 from the 41 . I'm going to make this after this play. Let's see what happens as they make it the snap. Deep drop. He wants to go deep and intercepted. Tate across midfield and he will go down and protect the football I was just about to get it out of my mouth that they didn't have to score. The could just get it into the overtime period and they have got a much better chance with
Tony on the field. You are right . Conservative playcalling right there would have been the order of the day. Were not questioning Coach Ollie Ollie. Don't get me wrong. The third over the next that is the biggest so far. That was just row basically overthrew everybody bit your backup quarterback as it and he is intercepted a pass knows the last pass he attempted. In turn 2 make planted down the field and give them a chance to win the ballgame. But it ends up being costly in that case. Fifty-five seconds . They will throw it to the near sideline. Complete. That is not enough for the first out as tape makes the catch at the 33. He is right at the marker . They do stop the clock. That was excellent job of making a catch right there. Six receptions down for 135 135 yards . They will move the chains. All of them have been for a least a first down. Every one of them have been for first down and Monday of that being for a touchdown. They need about ten or 15 yards to make it comfortable for check That is a big play. Let's see if they call a timeout
timeout. They have got to left . The clock is running, 30 seconds They will call a timeout. Jake Lane may be the man of the error here if they can get him into field-goal range. He has got a 50 yarder and from disparate right here it would be I think a 52 yarder if they had to kick from here and I pretty much no in recent they put of attempted to try to win the ballgame. They would but he would like to get closer. Again, I've got to go back -- I am just so sad in one way that It is part of football but it is really going to be tough if that is indeed how the leopards lose this one. How they have battle back to tie lead earlier in the game. Right now their defense is got to make a stop and send it to overtime. One time out left for the Thunderbirds. It will be second and 12. Ball at the 35.
Again, think they need at least ten more yards, maybe 15 for Jake Lane. Which would mean another first down. He has a 50 yarder to his credit this year. Cunningham lost his footing. He had a play. That is the thing about it. He made a good read and it had a play in just stumbled and never got his balance back. Twenty seconds, the clock is moving and he will take it himself. He is got the 25 down to the 24 and they will call a timeout with about 5, 6 seconds left. And they also put the ball in the middle of the field. So let's see where they market. It looks like the 23 . Cunningham is a shaken up and he . Very similar fashion to his counterpart. They are actually going to measure this and come apart frankly, -- Grid of the securities first down at this point. He just wants to stop the clock. It will be about a 40-yard try. Is not a first down and they will call timeout and the clock at seven seconds
. He kicked a 49 yarder to beat Sidney Lanier and will wrap up the region championship. The winner of this one will go to Opelika next Friday. They will travel to East Alabama Alabama. They've got another final from 5A. Jackson has the beat Saint Paul 35-9. So we will have a new state champion in 5A this year. and 6A. And possibly 7A. Of the McGill is going back. The regard Beauregard taken Jackson. They are at the winner tonight. Ellis from the beats Alba 52-44 so they will both have I new state champion in 2A. Here we go . All right. 41-yard attempt. That is green with the hold . And they will have a timeout. I saw that coming. by the way, Tyler on a spot, this is a great time to tell the Smitty Grider told us about Oswald, the long snapper for Park Crossing. What a young man he is. You know, there is some great stories around the games that we have. But us fall, when he was talking about the special-teams
-- Bristol called him the consummate teammate. He is a small kitten only plays about hundred 70 pounds and he is just a tremendous guy and he said this kid can get a step off the grid the anybody he has seen seen. He may need to you. You go. A good snap. Good kick. It is good. Oh, my goodness. Jake Lane. And there is the story. He went down the field winding his arm and there is a story behind that with him. He attended kicking camps in your member the two young men who died in a car accident this summer who broke the kicker and punter. It was a Nebraska and Michigan state. He had made friends with those guys kicking kids, tending those and that that I think in the Sidney Lanier game and he just did it again and he said that was a tribute to his friend who died in a car accident and one of those guys that made national
What a football game here at the Cramton Bowl. Unbelievable. And it doesn't have our Baumhowers play of the game. And it is an interception . That is not Tony of the game. And that proved to be the difference in the past him till, With the interception. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. And I doubt you missed that but Kadarius Toney had gone out with an injury to his ankle. He did not return and I think we've got to be handy -- He told me your mother has been let's play one more week. We've got the week. Talk to the kicking game being they could have seats night. A think that is his fourth field goal. I knew we had an advantage. That was a heckuva ballgame. My hats off to blow up in the coaching staff in the kids played their hearts out. And when you got a great kicker like that, you call police have a chance. It's the first time he has done that for you. That is his second game-winner
and I couldn't be more proud for the kids. We found a way and we are fortunate your quarterback went down him a backup to an interception and gave us the chance. We are just happy to play another week. Congratulations. Thank you. Back to you guys. Folks, unbelievable. I hate it for Blount. I hate they have any pitiless ballgame like that. It was incredible. I feel for those young man, for the leopards. That's going to be all long road around daresay, you go back and mentioned to kickers may he has experienced loss in his life with losing his father to battle cancer and a losing two of his friends in the car accident this summer that were mentors of his is kickers and punters and his mom, who has been dedicated to travel with him all over the country, getting him better and better at his craft and to see a kick like that come through and have the opportunity that he had That is a testament to heart and family but I tell you, a
testament to heart is that loved football team tonight, several times in this game, Graham, they back to picture with their tails tucked and they didn't do that. They came back and they fought back and this is probably the most incredible game that I have So congratulations to the Thunderbirds . They are moving on. They are in the semi finals but they will face Opelika next Friday. What a game, folks. We will have one for you next week. Two into your local break on station and we will do you know where we are headed.
