The Andalusia Tiny Mites defeated Goshen 13-0, and the Red Level to claim the “Big Iron Bowl Championship” this past Saturday.
The Andalusia Tiny Mites shutout the Goshen Tiny Mites 13-0 in game one of the “Big Iron Bowl.”
Spencer Stroud got in the end zone first for the Bulldogs. Stroud took a handoff around the left end, then turned on the afterburners, and out ran the defense to the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown. The conversion attempt failed.
A few plays before the touchdown, Stroud came up with a big interception that halted Goshen’s drive, and gave Andalusia the ball in Goshen territory.
J’Marion Burnette scorched the defense a few drives later, scoring on a spectacular 29-yard touchdown run. Burnette weaved through a few defenders, broke a tackle, and then used his lighting fast speed to out run the remaining defenders.
Brunson Wilson connected with Burnette on the conversion to give the young Bulldogs a 13-0 lead, which would be enough for a Bulldog victory.
The Tiny Mites’ championship game pitted Andalusia against Red Level, and the Bulldogs thumped the Tigers 33-7 to claim the championship.
Burnette picked up right where he left off in the last game. It didn’t take long before Burnette busted out a 68-yard touchdown run to give the Bulldogs and early advantage. His first of four touchdowns in the championship match.
Burnette’s second touchdown came few drives later on another impressive run.
This time Burnette went 35 yards for the scoring, gliding in and out of defenders, on his way to the end zone.
Red Level’s Javin Poindexter added the Tigers’ only score of the day with a 23-yard touchdown.
It was then back to the Burnette show. One play after the Tigers’ touchdown, Burnette raced 54 yards for his third touchdown.
His fourth touchdown came just before halftime, and was his longest touchdown of the day at 73 yards.
Wilson added the Bulldogs’ final score on a 4-yard touchdown run, and Collin Wheeler added the conversion.
