That don't seem to make foolish mistakes and the defense was solid best I could tell, played very disciplined football on both sides of the ball. Good kids.

Sorry y’all took one on the chin. Time to regroup and get after those Tigers!

Might have been the best thing that could have happened, sometimes ya gotta get dusted to find out how hard you can become. We'll see next week against Troup. I saw two weaknesses maybe three last night in our defense. Two of those weaknesses can be corrected quickly in practice, the third I'm not so sure about with available personnel, maybe the youngster that becomes eligible Monday can contribute to that resolution.. Our boys are just gonna hafta get salty and play with more discipline.. Chain out..

Alto holds on to edge Palestine Westwood, 28-20

 

ALTO — It looked like Alto was on its way to a season opening blow out at halftime, but Palestine Westwood had other ideas.

The Yellowjackets managed to hold on late to stop the upset-minded Panthers 28-20 on Friday evening at Cam'Ron Matthews Field at Jacket Stadium.

Alto led 22-7 at the break, but the Panthers made a game of it in the final half. It has now been 46 years since Westwood last beat Alto.

2nd quarter, that was quick! I saw footage on the Red Zone. Looks like NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE from Big Sandy made the long drive. Not even the band....unless they were just late. Those boys probably felt defeated before they got off the bus just from seeing the “crowd.” Why did y’all meet halfway last year but not this year? That IS a long way to go!

It got a little better.  They fought hard though and didnt quit.  We met in Beckville last year.

Beckville got a new AD and didn't want to host from what I heard.

I just thought it was weird how SA didn’t go to Big Sandy last year (met half way at Beckville....on a Thursday night!) and BS had to go all the way to SA this year. 

Surprised they didn’t look for a different venue halfway again.

My peeps said Alto dropped 22 in the 2nd quarter because they played penalty free. That’s gotta make Swarmin & StingEm excited about the potential. 

The potential is there! We saw moments of greatness! Bottom line: we gotta CLEAN IT UP.

I can’t recall whether or not we were penalty free in the 2nd or not but it def was a good qtr. You’re gonna have the occasional holding calls every now and then in every game, but false starts (especially at home) and unsportsmanlike conduct penalties are what you’ve gotta eliminate and are the easiest for you to control. I’m sure there will be an emphasis on just that in the coming days and we should see a game this Friday with substantially less penalties. Like Sting said, we have no choice but to clean it up.

From my understanding Beckville didnt want to host.  Big Sandy tried their best to cancel the game.
