MA-Winston combine for 110 points
There was an October fireworks show Thursday night in Louisville.
Marshall Academy and Winston Academy junior high football teams lit up the scoreboard with 110 points. The Patriots lifted their unbeaten record to 6-0 with a 64-46 win.
MA totaled 550 yards on offense with quarterback Dakota Dailey rushing for 372. He had five runs of more than 50 yards each.
The Patriots’ Devin McGreger returned the opening kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown, and he also scored the two-point conversion.
Hunter Barringer added a 22-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Tucker Fant caught a pass from Dailey for the two. MA was on top 14-6.
MA reached the end zone three times in the second quarter – McGreger on a 2-yard run, Fant on a 32-yard catch and Dailey on a 55-yard run. All three two-point tries failed. Thomas Faulkenbery’s interception led to one of the touchdowns.
The Patriots led 34-6 at the half.
They upped the margin to 48-14 after three periods. Dailey dashed 25 yards for six points, and then after his 55-yard interception return, Colt Lindsey scored on a 1-yard plunge. Following Lindsey’s six, Faulkenbery cashed in the two-point conversion.
Winston, capitalizing on a couple of MA turnovers and successful onside kicks, suddenly sliced the deficit to 48-40 in the fourth quarter.
But the Patriots secured the win with two long scoring runs by Dailey – one covering 58 yards and another 52. McGreger and Dailey rushed for the two-point conversions.
Barringer led the MA defense. He had 10 tackles.
The unbeaten Patriots close the regular season this Thursday. They host West Memphis Christian at 7 p.m.
