9th Grade Football Team Falls to Tift on the Road

The Ware County 9th Grade Football Team traveled to Tift Co. High School to take on the Blue Devils. The young gators reached the red zone 5 times to come away with only 10 points and lost by a score of 26-10. 

 
To start the game, Tift got off to a fast start with a touchdown on their first drive. The gators next drive got down to as far as the 3 yard line. Penalties backed them up for their freshman kicker, Henry Bates, to kick a 30 yard field goal straight through the uprights to make the score 3-7. That would be the score going into the half. In the second half, Tift County scored 19 unanswered points to make it a score or 3-26. The gators would keep fighting, scoring another touchdown in the 4th quarter to make it a final score of 10-26.
 
Come out and support the young Gators next week as they take on Glynn Academy next week in Brunswick at 5:00.
