Andrews High's offense struggled to move the ball for most of the game last week, falling 30-20 to Lee Central.
“They had the better team,” said Andrews coach Scott Durham. “We didn't play well on either side of the ball.”
The Stallions jumped out to a 22-0 lead, scoring touchdowns on the first play of the second quarter, 1:20 into the third quarter, and on the first play of the fourth quarter.
The Yellow Jackets cut the lead to 22-8 with 9:48 left in the game when Cecil Murphy ran it in from 23 yards out and Ethan Wright scored the two-point conversion.
Lee Central recovered the onside kick and extended the lead to 30-8.
Murphy grabbed a Stallions' fumble and raced 70 yards to cut the lead to 30-14 with 2:32 left in the game.
After Andrews' defense forced a Lee Central punt, the Yellow Jackets got the ball back with a little over a minute left. Murphy had a 31-yard run and Wright hit Jaqwon Wright in the end zone as time expired for the 30-20 final.
“I don't think we were ready to play at kickoff,” Durham said. “For whatever reason, we had a weird look in our eyes. We did practice well, but I don't think we had the mental preparation we needed.”
Ethan Wright was 9-for-29 passing for 127 yards. Jaqwon Wright had 82 yards and Eleon Bruce had 27. Murphy led the ground game with 50 yards. Kalin Hudson added 27 yards.
Murphy has 63 yards on kickoff returns.
