Despite a solid effort by the Calhoun Tigers, the Highland Home Flying Squadron earned a 20-6 win on Friday night.

Jamarcus Davison scored on a 20-yard run for Calhoun to go ahead 6-0 early in the game, and the Tigers also made it inside the one-yard line only to be stopped by the HHS defense.

Highland Home took a 7-6 lead into the locker room with a touchdown in the final minute of the first half.

Midway through the third quarter, the Tigers’ defense earned a stop when a Squadron running back was deemed to have fumbled the ball before crossing the goal line, which resulted in a touchback for Calhoun.

Jamine Jordan broke a 49-yard run to the HHS 24-yard line, and the Tigers moved inside the 10-yard line.

Facing fourth and 14 to go on the HHS 15-yard line, Calhoun was stopped a yard short of the first down.

HHS responded with a touchdown, and though Calhoun threatened in the fourth quarter, an interception ended the scoring opportunity.

Highland Home added another touchdown in the last minute of the game.

“I thought they gave a good effort,” said head coach Bill Williamson. “I was proud of them.”

Next week the Tigers take on Elba.
