The Calhoun Tigers fell hard at home to New Brockton, Friday night by a final score of 60-14.
Calhoun head football coach Dewayne Williams said following the contest, “We’ve got to go back to the basics in terms of discipline. We blew a lot of assignments tonight because of discipline.”
The Tigers scored early in the contest on a pass from Jakeem Davison to Je’Marcus Davison and a 2-point play by Je’Marcus Davison. That matched a first quarter score by New Brocton, and it looked like fans were in for a hard fought battle.
But the Calhoun Tigers found themselves down to New Brockton 46-8 at the half and never really got back into this contest.
New Brockton poured a total of 60 points on Calhoun with the Tigers’ final points of the night coming on a Jemarcus Rhimes touchdown run.
Calhoun team captains for the night were Jakeem Davison, Je’Marcus Davison and Arthur Phifer.
Calhoun is now 0-2 on the season and 0-1 in regional play. They will play their final home game of the season Friday, Sept. 11 against regional opponent Zion Chapel. Which means the third game of the season for Calhoun is homecoming.
