Simpson Academy celebrated Homecoming Week this past week capped off by a Cougar 42-14 win over Bowling Green extending their winning streak to five games. The Cougars jumped out quickly on the Bucs when Ethan Flynt hit Bryce Caughman from 28 yards out, Hooks Harvey added the PAT and with 9:44 left in the first quarter the Cougars led 7-0.
The Mendenhall Tigers fourth quarter shutout streak came to an end, but the more important win streak continues. The Tigers traveled to West Lauderdale to take on the Knights in what many believed to be the District Championship game. The Tigers had not defeated the Knights in the past two seasons.
Simpson Academy’s sofball season came to an end on Saturday afternoon with a 14-3 loss to Jackson Prep in the Overall State AAAA Championship Series. The Lady Cougars have nothing to hang their heads about as they finished the season with a school record 28 wins, a State AAAA DII Championship, and the Overall State AAAA Runner-up.
The Magee Trojans fell to 3-4 on the season and dropped their district opener to Velma Jackson. Very little went well for the Trojans and they struggled on both sides on the ball. The Trojans were kept out of the end zone for the second time this season. The final score was 26-3.
