Although the Yellow Jackets managed to put up a respectable performance, the Tigers showed that they’re no stranger to the playoffs. The defending region champions lost in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs last season. However, this year’s squad has a chance at the big prize.

The Tigers played a good game in the first half but were unable to find the end zone. They did manage to take a lead on the first possession of the game, though, as Corey Davis ran for a 73-yard touchdown. The Yellow Jackets also managed a second score, which came from Tray Youngblood. In the end, the Tigers got the short end of the stick.

The team also showed its wares in the second half, as the Yellow Jackets outscored the Tigers 21-0. The Yellow Jackets also displayed their mettle in the trenches, as they recovered a fumble on a crucial Comer play. Comer actually managed to score a touchdown in the final minute, but it wasn’t enough to stave off the Jackets. The Tigers had to settle for three field goals and a tad over 200 yards of offense.

The Tigers also displayed their prowess on the defensive side of the ball, as they held Vincent to a total of only 186 yards and seven first downs. Comer’s rushing attack was led by junior Rykelus Robertson, who tallied 19 carries for 179 yards and an 82-yard touchdown.

In the end, the Vincent Yellow Jackets have their first loss of the season. However, they are still a solid team and are likely to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. If the Tigers can win the final two games of the season, they’ll be on the cusp of making it to the state playoffs. Hopefully, an off week will provide them with some much needed rest.

The big question is whether they can do it again in the postseason. The Tigers face off against Lanett on November 4 and Hale County on November 8. The Tigers are ranked fifth in the state in Class 2A. The Tigers will have a tough time overcoming the defending region champions. In addition, they must continue to keep their ferocious rushing attack on track against the likes of Bouldin and the aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned. If they can do it, they might just be the best team in the area.
