Commerce Tigers drop heartbreaker


GREENVILLE — Pleasant Grove 27,

Commerce 24

  COMMERCE — A nail-biter Friday night saw the 2-1 Commerce Tigers eventually fall 27-24 on Friday to the 0-3 Pleasant Grove Hawks.

  In the waning moments of the game Commerce saw a would-be 66-yard game winning touchdown called back when junior quarterback Sam Wells stepped over the line of scrimmage before delivering the ball. Commerce had one final chance to win with 8.6 seconds left in the game, but the designed laterals play eventually died.

  Commerce received to start the game but gave up the ball on downs near midfield after an unsuccessful fake punt run by senior Buck Wilson on fourth and one. But the Tiger defense stepped up on Pleasant Grove’s first play from scrimmage when Hawks quarterback Casey Rayburn had his pass tipped by senior defensive lineman Blake Madewell and intercepted by junior linebacker Demetric Jennings. The Tiger offense stalled on the ensuring drive, with teams trading punts.

  The first score of the game came with 4:37 left in the first quarter as Wilson hauled in a 10-yard touchdown pass from Wells, capping an 11-play, three-minute drive. The extra point made it 7-0 Commerce.

  Pleasant Grove answered immediately. Hawks quarterback Casey Rayburn ate up a chunk of yards with a 32-yard run and finished off the three-play drive with a 12-yard touchdown run.

Paris Chisum 14

  LONE OAK — The Lone Oak Buffaloes made Haley Hinson, the newly-crowned homecoming queen, Kyle Rabe, the homecoming king and all the returning alumni proud on Friday night, corralling the Paris Chisum Mustangs, 42-14.

  Lone Oak (3-1) is idle next week and will begin district play against the Kemp Yellowjackets on Oct. 5.
