Lions weather visiting Hurricanes for Hall of Fame game victory

Foley 33, Alma Bryant 18


FOLEY, Ala. - The Lions earned a big 7A league win over Alma Bryant at Ivan Jones Stadium last week. The 2019 Foley Athletic Hall of Fame inductees were on hand as the Blue and Gold defeated visiting Alma Bryant 33-18.

LaDarious Roper scored touchdowns on runs from 67 and 16 yards, Andy Quaites finished the opening drive of the second half with a 40-yard touchdown run and Chris Pearson had an interception returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Forrest Taylor kicked two field goals from 39 and 23 yards.

“So proud of the kids’ resiliency right now,” said Foley head coach Tad Niblett. “It might not have been a thing of beauty at times, of course, but feels good to get a win. We had moments when it looked like it could go either way, but they stayed the course and battled for a win. They never let up right down to the last play. Come Sunday, we’ll look at what needs more work and fix it.”

ABHS’ Aydan Adams scored on a 40-yard run and Cedrian Johnson added a 44-yard touchdown run for the Hurricanes. Adams also caught a 43-yard TD pass from Tanner Ewing late in the game.

The Lions (1-2, 1-1) play the Hornets at Baker Friday. The Hurricanes fell to 0-3, 0-2 and host Theodore Sept. 20.
