CHIPLEY — Chipley fans probably got tired of hearing the name Teon Long during the Tigers’ 42-14 loss to the Marianna Bulldogs on Friday night at Philip Rountree Stadium.

Long, a sophomore, accounted for 5 of the Marianna Bulldogs’ 6 touchdowns against the Chipley squad on the Tigers’ home turf, starting with a 49-yard dash less than five minutes into the game to cap the Bulldogs’ first drive. The two-point attempt was good and the ’Dogs led 8-0. With 1:57 left in the first quarter, Long went right and danced through the Tigers’ defense to cap a 70-yard drive that began when Marianna sophomore Roderick Copeland took the handoff from quarterback Herman Williams and raced to the Tigers 34-yard line. The ’Dogs stalled out for three plays before Long found the endzone on a 4th and three. J.T. Meadows’ kick was good and the Bulldogs were up by 15.

With 5:32 left in the half Long once again scored, this time from 10 yards out. Meadows added the extra point and it was 22-0.

But Long wasn’t finished. At the 1:43 mark he scored from 29-yards out to push the Marianna margin to 28-0 going into the half.
