Thomasville vs. Central Tuscaloosa

This game boasts another rematch, albeit one from 2006. Last year’s underdog Central Tuscaloosa found themselves coming into their own towards the end of the season. They were facing a Thomasville team that were supposed to outmatch them.
Coach Melvin Pete’s Falcons pushed Coach Jack Hankins’ Tigers into an overtime duel. Thomasville went up by a score and the Tuscaloosa team matched it, but went for a two point conversion to outright win the match up rather than tying the game with an extra point. The two-point conversion failed, but that loss seemed to have been the start of something special.
Thomasville went on to play in the state championship finals before falling to Guntersville 28-27.
The Falcons haven’t lost a game since that gut wrenching finish. Last week Andalusia was supposed to be a great challenge for the team that outscored opponents 847-135. Didn’t happen. After a blocked punt, a fumble and two interceptions in the first half Andalusia trailed 33-7 and wound up losing the game 47-7.
