Tomcats slay Warriors over wet ﬁeld
As the clouds darkly loomed around the High School football stadium, you could see the look of concern of last Friday’s match up between the Haywood County High School Tomcats and the Booker T. Washington Warriors. A half-hour prior to the game, a few drops turned into a light, brief shower and a couple of ﬂashes of lightning. However, the weather had cleared up a bit by the time game time— delayed 15 minutes— rolled around. Still, the wet ﬁeld didn’t help either team, who played each other in a fumble heavy game, that night The Tomcats fumbled four times during the game, with two of them recovered by the Warriors. The Warriors lost three fumbles of their own, with their ﬁrst being recovered minutes into the ﬁrst quarter by the Tomcats.
The Tomcats seized the opportunity by quickly scoring a touchdown and ﬁeld goal, leading the game 7-0. The Warriors however steadily worked their way back up the ﬁeld for a touchdown of their own, but missed an attempted ﬁeld goal kick. First quarter action concluded when the Tomcats gained a safety, bringing the score to 9-6. The Tomcats defense kept Warriors score the same throughout the second quarter. But the same couldn’t be said for the Warriors. The Tomcats managed to pull another Touchdown, bringing the score to 16-6. The third quarter was back and forth between the two teams, with no points scored from either side. The same couldn’t be said for the fourth quarter, with less than ﬁve minutes left in the game, player Terry Grandberry scored Haywood’s ﬁnal

touchdown of the game. After a successful ﬁeld goal kick from the team, the score was 23-6. While the Warriors attempted to score again, they fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Haywood. With only 1:47 left in the game, the Tomcats had pretty much cemented their win. After a heavy August 27 loss to Liberty Tech, and a week off from play, the Tomcats earned themselves the second win of their season. Standout players for the game, included Quintaveous Caldwell who scored for the Tomcats and Terry Grandberry who rushed for 96 yards on 21 carries and scored two touchdowns for the team. The Tomcats will see away game action against Crockett Co. this Friday, who remain undefeated so far in this early pigskin seasons. Crockett pulled out a win against Dyer County last week, 17-10.
