Round #3 TSSAA Class 3A State Playoffs
The 11 – 0 Red Bank Lions roll into Baxter to face the 12 – 0 Bees with their Mr. Football finalist, Calvin Jackson, chopping at the bits to tear the Bees defense apart!
Well, that didn’t happen . . . The swarming UHS defense stopped the Lions in their tracks. What did happen . . . The Bees gave them a big dose of the M & M Duo and Introduced them to Cole “Rocketman” Bush! Enough said final score UHS 50 Red Bank 21.
Lions go home with their tails between their legs licking those Bee stings from the swarm.
Offensively Upperman did what they do best, the M & M duo of Blake Metzgar and Donoven McAlister pounded out yardage. Metzgar gaining 176 yards on 23 carries and McAlister picked up 174 yeards on 15 carries. But it was the Rocketman that broke the Lions back by making one circus catch in the end zone for a TD and a 71 yard Bomb for another TD by out running the defense.
Defensively the swarming Bees were led by Nicholas Stacey with 13 tackles/assists . Sidney Brewington and Caden Nash each picking up 8 tackles/assists.
Next up, the powerful Tornadoes from Aloca will be blowing into town Friday, November 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm.
Be there or Be Square!!
Support the Bees!!!!!!
