Austin 5 - 3
Good pitching and timely hitting – wait a second, that’s not right. It was a baseball score on a night with heat better suited to that sport than football. Without a jamboree game and just three weeks’ practice, the offenses were a little sloppy. But fourth-ranked Spain Park did what it needed to do to win the game. Crosby Gray kicked through the decisive field goal.
Hueytown 28 - 21
Jags quarterback Mason Duke threw a pair of TD passes to Trent Harper and scored on a run, but it was Wade Streeter’s 2-yard run late in the fourth quarter that broke a 21-all tie and lifted the fourth-ranked Jags to the road win.
Thompson 52 - 28
Hunter Schmith kicked a pair of field goals and Jack Hutcheson connected with Alex Elam on a 68-yard TD pass on the fourth quarter as the No. 2 Bucs beat Mountain Brook for their first win of the season, the Class 7A, Region 3 opener for both schools. The defense held the Spartans to just 80 yards of total offense.
Tuscaloosa Co. 7 - 26
