It was Homecoming and it was all Simpson Academy on Friday night against the Columbia Academy Cougars. Simpson’s fast paced offense proved to be too much.
SCA jumped out to a 1st quarter 29-0 lead. Almost scoring at will. Simpson’s Carter Cockrell had back to back touchdown runs of 32 and 7 yards. The defense joined in the fun with a mishandled snap on a punt that resulted in a safety against Columbia Academy. Cockrell soon entered the stage again with another 30 yard touchdown run. Then with 8 seconds left in the half, Brentley Berry broke free for a 78 yard touchdown run.
In the second quarter, Braden Duncan intercepted a pass that later resulted in a 5 yard touchdown pass from Berry to Tyler Stanford. Later in the quarter, with 3:19 left in the half, Colby Womack capped off a drive with a 1 yard TD run. Columbia Academy got the ball back before half but had the attempt spoiled by an interception from Sawyer done. SCA led at halftime 42-0.
In the second half, SCA went scoreless. However, Columbia Academy scored in the 3rd and 4th quarter on a 9 yard run and a 23 yard pass. The final was 42-14.
