After the tough Cavalier defense stopped the Harris County Tigers on their opening drive of the game, Callaway went to work on the Cavalier 20 yard line. Eddie Culpepper ran three times in a row reaching the Callaway 33. Dre Martin then hit Braylon Sanders with a pass carried to the Harris 30. Two plays later, Culpepper picked up ! six yards running to the outside and Terry Godwin scampered to the Harris 17. Quarterback Martin pitched the bpll to Culpper, who ran into the end zone. The kick was good and the Cavaliers had taken a 7-0 lead. The Cavalier defense again proved tough, stopped the Tigers ; and forced a punt. Godwin grabbed the kick and sprinted up the field before being brought down on the Harris 34. Culpepper ran up the middle for a first down on the Tiger 11. Cedrin Maynard ran outside and into the end zone. Cameron Spinks kicked the extra point and with over two minutes left in the first quarter, the Cavaliers had taken a 14-0 lead. There would be no more scoring until just before the half, and action was furious. The Tigers had the ball on third and long and tossed a pass that was intercepted by the Cavaliers on the Harris 30. CaUaway fans were cheering loudly as Sanders ran to the 25 on second down. A third down pass fell incomplete and the Cavaliers kicked a field goal to take a 17-0 lead with 44 seconds left in the half. The Tigers started on the Harris 33 after the kick return and put together a five play drive that went 67 yards in 40 sec- onds with the touchdown coming on a 37-yard pass into the end zone. The extra point was good, but at the half ,the Cavaliers were leading 17-7. Harris County is becoming known as a second half team, as they proved that again against the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers had first possession of the second half but fumbled the ball on second down with the Tigers recovering on the Callaway 38. The Tigers needed only a single play as run up the middle was carried into the end zone. The extra point kick was good, and the Cavalier lead had been cut to 17-14. After the kick and return, the Cavaliers started on the Callaway 39. A pitch was stopped for no gain and then Martin was sacked for a nine yard loss. Adding insult to injury, a penal- ty against CaUaway cost the Cavaliers five more yards. A.third pass fell incomplete with 2 scrambling away from pressure. The Cavaliers punted to the Harris 45. Wasting no time, the Tigers put together an 11 play drive that went the distance with a touchdown coming off a two-yard run. The extra point kick was good and the Cavaliers had gone from leading 17-0, to trailing 21-17. After the Tiger kick, the Cavaliers began moving down the field and were approaching the red zone with a first down on the Harris 38. Then a pitch was fumbled with the Tigers recov- ering on the Harris 29. The teams exchanged several possessions and with 7:27 left to play, the Tigers returned a Cavalier punt to the CaUaway 49. Four plays later, the Tigers scored on 20 yard run into the end zone. The kick was good and with just under six minutes left in the game, the Cavaliers were trailing 28-17. Putting the ball in play on the Callaway 45, the Cavaliers were feeling the pressure of the clock. Culpepper carried a screen pass to the Harris 21. Then two pass attempts fell incom- pletp'. On third and 10, quarterback Martin went down in the backfield under pressure from the Tiger defense. On fourth down, Martin tried to pass again but it fell incomplete as he was scrambling away from pressure. The ball went over on downs on the Harris 21. In four plays the Tiger offense marched down the field with the final touchdown of the game coming on a 22 yard run. The kick was good and the Cavalier lost by a score of 35-17. Losing to the Harris County Tigers certainly brings no shame. The Tigers compete in AAAAA level ball and field a very competitive team. The Tigers won their region two years ago and finished second last season, beating some powerhouse teams. Both those seasons, the Tigers went deep into the play- offs before losing. The Cavaliers will now have to get ready to face cross-coun- ty rival Troup County. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Friday.
