Ashland loses to Walnut
Ashland kicked off its first football season with a 33-12 loss Friday night at Walnut.
The past few years athletes from Ashland and Hickory Flat played together as the Benton County Buccaneers. This year each school has its own team.
The Blue Devils fell behind 20-0 at halftime.
But Cornelious Jones provided some spark to start the third when he returned the kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown. A try-for-two was stopped short.
