Alba-Golden 22,

Celeste 6

  CELESTE — The Celeste Blue Devils gave up multiple turnovers in their 22-6 homecoming loss to Alba-Golden on Friday night in a non-district football game.

  The field conditions were soggy after a day and night of rain and that might have been a contributing factor to the five Blue Devils turnovers. 

  The first quarter was scoreless and the Blue Devils had just made a big defensive stop at their own 15-yard line when their first turnover occurred, a fumble that was recovered by the Panthers Lane Ditto at Celeste’s 45-yard line. The ensuing drive for the Panthers ended with a 1-yard touchdown by running back Dalton Wright. Wright also ran in for the two-point conversion.

  The Panthers then attempted an onside kick which was mishandled by the Blue Devils. A Panther player jumped on the loose ball and recovered for Alba-Golden. Celeste held defensively and went to the locker room at the half trailing 8–0.

  Celeste received the second half kickoff and was driving deep into the Panthers territory when the Blue Devils fumbled again and the Panthers recovered at their own 41-yard line. 

  The Panthers capitalized on the turnover and scored another touchdown and two-point conversion by running back Eddie Salinas.


Leonard 66,

Como-Pickton 0

  COMO — Solomon Titus rushed for 223 yards on just eight carries to lead the Leonard Tigers to a 66-0 victory over the Como-Pickton Eagles Friday night.

  Leonard opened the scoring with a 30-yard TD pass from Justin Bennett to Colson Coheley. Ty McKinney kicked his first of nine consecutive extra points on the night.

  The next three Leonard scores came on runs of 44, 50 and 76 yards by Titus.

The Tigers scored on a 50-yard pass completion from Bennett to Ryan Reid Nixon just before halftime as the Tigers led 42-0 at intermission 42-0.

  Nixon scored on a 30-yard run in the fourth period. McKinney finalized the scoring for the Tigers with a 42-yard field goal with 1:12 left in contest.
