Andalusia youth football teams complete season

The Andalusia Termite 9- and 10-year-old football team was victorious Saturday for the second consecutive year in winning the Super Bowl. The coaches leading the team were Marcus Jones, Sammy Mahaffey and Wayne King.

The Super Bowl was played at Red Level on Saturday, Nov. 1 with Andalusia defeating Red Level by the score of 12-0 in the Western Division Championship. Andalusia went on to defeat Florala 20-14 to capture the league championship in the Termite division.

Both the Red Level and Florala teams played very well. The Florala team scored a late touchdown with six seconds remaining in the game. Andalusia fumbled on the first play of their next possession.

Andalusia's Johnny Jones stopped Florala's Vickers for a 10-yard loss to end the game.
