Marianna, FL---Memorial day weekend may signal the switch to summer, but don't tell that to Jackson County, especially the football players.
Marianna hosted our area's latest spring football jamboree Saturday, with Sneads, Cottondale, and Graceville, the last two, kicking off the action, or lack there of.
The Tigers and Hornets were stuck in a scoreless tie until the last play of their quarter, when D'Angelo Bell returns an interception for a touchdown and the only points of the matchup, winning 6-0.
In the second game, Cottondale also failed to score, while Sneads running back Antwan Durn found the end zone twice, leading the Pirates to a 14-0 win.
Host Marianna took to the field in the third game, facing Graceville first. Neither team was able to reach the end zone, but the Bulldogs kicked home two field goals to win 6-0. They would go on to fall 7-0 to Sneads in the fourth quarter after.
In the highlights attached above, the action starts with Graceville facing Cottondale. Graceville QB Preston Nichols sacked by a swarm of Hornets.
But a similar fate is in store for Justin Lipford, wrestled down by an ambush of Tigers.
Final play of the quarter, D'Angelo Bell comes up with the pick six as the clock runs out.
But Cottondale had a quick turnaround, facing Sneads up next.
Antwan Durn gets the carry, won't be stopped, keeps fighting. TD 7-0.
But Durn's not done, wills his way back in makes it 14-0.
That'd be the final as the Pirates shut out the Hornets in their quarter of play.
In the third game, it's the host Marianna taking the field against Graceville.
The Tigers out of the triple option, pick up the first down on this Gray DeVane run that puts them in the redzone.
But soon after, trouble in the form of a fumble. Misscomunication leads to Marianna taking over.
The Bulldogs get a nice gain when Anton Williams when he decides to keep it and run. They add two field goals to win game three 6-zip.
Marianna falls to Sneads in the final quarter 7-nothing.
