Brackett has big numbers, but JCA falls

Central of Clay County holds on to edge Munford (with scores)

HOOVER – Daylon Brackett opened his senior season with some impressive numbers, but Jacksonville Christian fell behind early and couldn’t recover, falling to Shades Mountain Christian 42-34.

Brackett, the 2013 Class 1A All-State quarterback, had 416 total yards and four touchdowns in the game, but was forced to play from behind all night as the Eagles scored on their first two possessions.

Brackett rushed for 220 yards, passed for 109 and had 87 yards in returns.

His touchdown runs covered 1 and 14 yards. His touchdown passes went to Walker Messer (5 yards) and Kris Armprester (39 yards). Andre Garner had the Thunder’s other touchdown.

“Daylon played very hard,” JCA coach Tommy Miller said. “He never came off the field and the humidity and heat was just draining him. I don’t know if we can ask much more out of Daylon, but we’ve got to get some things going around him.”

Brackett’s final touchdown and subsequent two-point conversion got the Thunder within eight points and it had two chances to get the potential tying scores.

The Thunder drove into SMC territory late in the fourth quarter but Brackett was intercepted inside the 10. The Eagles fumbled on first down with a minute to play, but the Thunder couldn’t recover it and the home team ran out the clock.

“I think we’ve got a long, long way to go, but we knew that,” Miller said. “We made some big, big mistakes tonight … but we’ve just got to learn from that because we’ve got a region counter in two weeks.”

CENTRAL-CLAY 10, MUNFORD 7 — The Volunteers, ranked No. 4 in Class 5A, opened a 10-0 first-quarter lead and used some stout defense to hold on.

Rodney Smith’s 25-yard field goal and Malik Dark’s 13-yard fumble return staked the Vols to their early lead. The defense made it stand by stopping three Munford drives deep in Vols territory in the second quarter, including a missed 27-yard field goal..

The Lions’ offense finally solved the Vols’ defense in the fourth quarter with a 14-play, 89-yard drive capped by Brett Haynie’s 6-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Chapman.

Haynie completed 14 of 26 passes for 130 yards; he also rushed for 37 yards. Chapman had nine catches for 79 yards.
