Graceville wins on homecoming in dramatic fashion

The Graceville Tigers have struggled this year, having not won a game through their first seven games.  Two of the games were very winnable but fell just a little shy of a win.  Friday night was homecoming for the Tigers and they were facing cross-county rival Cottondale.  The Hornets came in as a heavy favorite, having lost only one game to the Chipley Tigers.  With the game at 28-8 at halftime, the writing appeared to be on the wall.  But the Tigers took the field in the second half with a different look in their eye and drove for 32 unanswered points to take the 40-28 win.  

Jimmy Price scored Cottondale’s first touchdown of the night in the first quarter of play.  The conversion was good and the Hornets were up 8-0.   Cameron Brooks was the next Hornet to find the end zone with Price making good on the conversion.  The Hornets appeared to be in control with a 16-0 lead.  

Brooks scored the third Cottondale touchdown and the Hornets were coasting to a 22-0 lead in the second quarter of play.  

Demarious Finklea removed the goose egg from Graceville’s side of the scoreboard to narrow the lead to 22-6.  Joseph Claiborne converted for two points and Cottondale’s lead was reduced to 22-8 with time left in the second quarter.  Cottondale answered with a touchdown to go into the halftime leading 28-8.  

Graceville took the field in the second half and quickly put up 18 points in the third quarter.  Trailing 28-26 after three quarters of play, Graceville wasn’t finished.  They added a pair of touchdowns and two conversions to make it a 40-28 ballgame and picked up their first win of the season.

Cottondale concluded their regular season Friday night and await their playoff schedule.  Graceville will take on a very tough 9-0 Baker at home this Friday night with a 7 p.m.
