Tigers take control of 2-1A

Published: Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 12:52 PM.

Padgett opened the second period by scoring on the first play, racing from behind the Tiger 36-yard line for a 67-yard touchdown only 25 seconds into the quarter.

Fourteen seconds later, senior Javonte Cotton scooped up a Yellow Jackets fumble at their own 20 and carried it into the end zone, bringing the Graceville lead to 28-0 with 11:21 left to play in the first half.

Senior CJ Miller scored the final touchdown of the second quarter when he broke through the middle of the Vernon line from 42-yards out and dashed into the endzone, capping a 62-yard, 5-play drive.

Vernon’s sole touchdown came with 1:56 left in the third quarter, when senior Nick Porter went up the middle from the Tigers 15-yard line to score. The two-point attempt was no good due to a fumbled snap, but the Yellow Jackets were on the board for six.

The Tigers travel to Jay next Friday and Vernon goes to Northview. Kick off is at 7 p.m.
