CHIPLEY — The Chipley Tigers had a hearty Homecoming feast, pouncing on the South Walton Seahawks early in the opening quarter to post a 37-6 win at Philip Rountree Stadium on Friday.

Junior Kobe McCrary scored on a 30-yard scamper to put the Tigers on the board just 1:10 into the game, and Fletcher Dilmore’s aim was good, as usual, for the extra point.

A bad snap resulted in the Seahawks putting 2 points on the board for the Tigers with a touchback about a minute later, then on their next possession the Tigers marched 70 yards on 4 plays, helped immensely by Sophomore Carlon Smith’s 60-yard kick return, which put the Tigers on the Seahawk’s 30 to begin the drive.

Smith also took a short pass from junior quarterback Jordan Finch on the second down and was stopped inside the 5-yard line, then McCrary was able to sweep left to score with 8:44 left in the first quarter. Dilmore added a point and the Tigers led 16-0.

In the final minutes of the first stanza, the Tigers started yet another scoring drive, which was capped just seconds into the 2nd quarter with a 5-yard run by junior Jacob Wilson. Dilmore kicked another field goal and the Chipley squad led 23-0 with 11:53 left to play in the half.
