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.
