Tomcats fall to Crockett Co. By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com A shorthanded Haywood squad hung with the state’s 10th-ranked Class 4A team for a while Friday night in Brownsville. But in the end, Crockett County had a little too much firepower and defeated the Tomcats, 21-7, in non-district action. Haywood (2-2), playing without an injured Bryce Young, the team’s leading rusher through three games, still managed 292 yards of offense and had more first downs (15 to 9) than the Cavaliers (3-1). But Crockett County’s defense managed to keep Haywood out of the end zone until late in the game when sophomore quarterback Wil Austin scored on a run to trim the lead to 14. Trailing 14-0 early in the fourth quarter, Haywood drove inside the Crockett 10-yard line but was unable to score. Crockett answered with a TD to go ahead by three scores. “It was a great rebound game for us,â€? said Haywood head coach Ernie Jackson, referring to the team’s loss the previous week to Liberty. “We’ve got some small things we need to continue to work on ‌ The defense played lights out. They really only gave up two plays. They kept us in it.â€? Austin had a big game passing for the Tomcats,

completing 18 of 29 passes for 218 yards. Sophomores Denarius Toliver (eight catches, 97 yards) and Dylan Simmons (four catches, 83 yards) were his primary targets. Josh Reed, another sophomore, led Haywood’s rushing attack with 31 yards on three carries. Seniors Montravious Currie and Tyverius Jones each had 18 yards on the ground for the Tomcats. The Cavaliers did most of their damage on the ground. Josh Tatum finished with 113 yards on 16 carries and a score and Dachaun Pickens scored a pair of touchdowns. Crockett quarterback Cade Parlow also chipped in with 42 yards rushing. Haywood sophomore Emmit Gooden led Haywood’s defense with 11 tackles, including a sack and another tackle for loss. Currie had eight tackles and Xavier Ballard (six tackles) recorded a sack. “I was really proud of the guys,â€? Jackson said. “They kept fighting until the end and never gave up ‌ This is a process. Rome wasn’t built in a day.â€? Equavious Barbee, one of the team’s top receivers, missed most of the game after being injured in the first quarter. Jackson said he expects Barbee and Young to re-

turn this week. The Tomcats, who are 0-1 in District 15-AA, return to league action tomorrow night at Covington. The Chargers (3-1 overall, 1-0 district) beat Jackson North Side two weeks ago in league play before falling 31-7 last week to Brighton. Friday’s game begins at 7:30 p.m. and is homecoming for the Chargers. “This is a big, big game for us this weekend,� Jackson said. “If we can get this one we’ll be right back in the (district) race.�
