Red Level defeats Calhoun with second-half comeback

The Calhoun School Tigers came close, but no cigar Friday night, falling 33-30 to Red Level in a 2A Region 2 contest on the road.

After jumping out to a 22-13 lead in the first half, the Tigers couldn’t stop Red Level in the final two stanzas.

“Couldn’t stop them,” said Calhoun head football coach Bill Williamson. “We just couldn’t hold the lead.”

Williamson said Mark Robinson scored twice, Devel Goldsmith once and Jamarcus Davison once to account for 24 points for the Tigers. He said there were two 2-point conversions scored by Jamine Jordan and Davison.

Like their cross county rivals the Central Lions, the Tigers are 0-3 on the year. However, both teams, the Tigers and the Lions, proved more competitive Friday night with close calls.

While the Tigers fell by 3 points, the Lions came up 6 points short.
