The Auburn High Tigers (2-1) come off a loss to the number-one team in the state last Friday night against Central-Phenix City (recap) and travel to Prattville (2-1) this Friday for a region 7A match-up. Last season at Duck-Samford Stadium, Auburn defeated Prattville 31-14 in a game where running back Garrett Morris scored three touchdowns, two on the ground and one receiving. Morris’ great performance was part of the Tiger’s offensive showing that night, as Auburn finished the game with 317 rushing yards and 433 total offensive yards.

 

Prattville-lions-logoPrattville finished their 2016 season with a 1-8 overall record (1-5 in region) and missed a spot in the AHSAA 7A playoffs. Things are looking better for the Lions this season, however, as they have bounced back from an early loss to Wetumpka to win two in a row against Stanhope-Elmore and Enterprise.

 

AHS on WingsAuburn High is ranked eighth in this week’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll and hopes to prove worthy of a much higher ranking in Prattville on Friday night. Airtime will be 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey and Noah Gardner providing coverage. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com and on the Wings 94.3 app.

The Auburn High football team kept it close with the number one team in the state of Alabama, but fell to the Central Red Devils 34-28 on Friday night. Central took an early 7-0 lead over the Tigers in the first, but Jay Walker evened the score with a 36 yard touchdown later in the first. Auburn senior Brooks Fuller then connected with JaMarcus Knight to give the Tigers a 14-7 lead. The first quarter ended with a 5 yard run by Central’s A’montae Spivey to once again tie the game at 14. With time expiring in the second quarter, Trey Elston caught a 5 yard touchdown from Fuller to give the Tigers a 21-14 lead at the half.

 

But the number one team in the state had a huge third quarter, especially A’montae Spivey. Spivey had a 43 yard touchdown run followed by a 79 yard touchdown run to put the Red Devils back in front 28-21. Spivey struck again in the fourth with a 22 yard rushing touchdown to make it 34-21. Auburn scored to make it 34-28 and recovered an onside kick to give the Tigers offence a chance, but they were unable to score and lost by a 34-28 final.

 

Auburn quarterback Brooks Fuller finished the game 16 for 34 passing and 186 yards while Auburn running back Jay Walker had 24 rushes for 169 yards and a touchdown. JaMarcus Knight was the Tigers leading receiver with 6 receptions for 89 yards. For Central, quarterback Peter Parrish went 11 for 17 passing and 96 yards and A’montae Spivey had 10 rushes for 197 yards and four touchdowns.

 

AHS on WingsNext Friday night Auburn will travel to Prattville to take on the Lions who were victorious over Enterprise on Friday, 45-21.

AHS vs Central

Auburn High Plays Number One Central-Phenix City on Friday Night at Duck-Samford Stadium

 The Auburn High Football team escaped with a 17-13 win over their arch-rival Opelika on Friday night with the help of a stellar performance by the Tiger defense. Auburn safety Cally Chizik had two interceptions in the game, linebacker Mahamond Diabate had two sacks, and the Tigers blocked a punt in the fourth quarter. The Tiger’s win on Friday night was their first win over the Bulldogs since 2013 and the first in the Coach Adam Winegarden era. With the big rivalry game in the books, Auburn moves to 2-0 and now focuses on a new challenge, Central- Phenix City.

 

Red-Devil-LogoCentral is currently the number one ranked team in AHSAA class 7A according to the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll, and their play over the first two games proves that they are worthy of that title. The Red Devils beat Bob Jones 33-7 in week one, then soundly defeated Fairfield 62-0. In last Friday’s game against Fairfield, Central quarterback Peter Parrish threw for three touchdowns and defensive back Devonte Mathews had a pick-six.

 

The Tigers hope to have more success against Central than they did last season. In the 2016 regular season, Auburn traveled to Phenix City for their first road game of the year and lost 42-14. The Tigers then returned to Phenix City to take on the Red Devils in round two of the 7A playoffs, but again lost by a 48-9 final score.

 

AHS on WingsAuburn High was ranked eighth in Wednesday’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll, and hopes to take the momentum from the Opelika game into Duck-Samford Stadium on Friday night. Air time will be at 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the Auburn High broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey, and Noah Gardner. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com or on the Wings 94.3 app.
