Daphne takes the Region Championship over Fairhope

Updated: Saturday, October 19 2013, 12:14 PM CDT

The UTV 44 High School Game of the Week presented by Whataburger was back on the eastern shore for the “Battle of the Eastern Shore” between the Daphne Trojans and the Fairhope Pirates.

Winner of this game will take home the Region 2 Championship.

Fairhope got the ball to start the game first, and wasted no time and getting on the board first.  Quarterback Grey Jackson led the Pirates down the field for 74 yards, and Ernest Andrews got 30 of those yards on the touchdown reception.  The Pirates missed the PAT but had the 6-0 lead in the 1st quarter.

Daphne now got their chance, and in half the plays of Fairhope’s first drive, the Trojans found the end zone when T.J. Reed ran the ball in on a 3 yard run.  The 80 yard drive only took five plays and just over two minutes and Daphne now had the 7-6 lead.

Daphne got the ball back and was able to match their first series, Reed scored his second touchdown on another 3 yard run, this time the drive was 50 yards.  Daphne now had a 14-6 lead with just under two minutes left in the first quarter.

Both teams traded possessions to start the second quarter, until there was about half way through the quarter when Daphne quarterback Zack Morgan found C.J. Yelding for a 42 yard reception.  A couple plays later T.J. Reed found the end zone for the third time in the game on a 38 yard run.  With less than six minutes left in the half, Daphne had 21-6 lead over Fairhope.

The third quarter saw both team trade turnovers, more in particular; Grey Jackson threw two interceptions in one series.  The first was by Daphne’s Kareem Brown but was nullified by a roughing the passer penalty, then Jackson was intercepted again this time by Tanner Lee.

The start of the 4th quarter saw Fairhope close the gap when running back David Kriksy find the end zone on a 30 yard reception.  The Pirates were now only down 21-13.

The Trojans got the ball back and looked to seal the victory.  Reed ripped off a 50 yard run to help get Daphne in scoring position.  Reed capped the 11 play drive with a 4 yard run for his fourth touchdown of the night.  Reed finished the night with 8 carries for 152 yards and Daphne now had a 28-13 lead.

Daphne finished off the Pirates with less than two minutes left in the game when Morgan found Tamaurice Tolbert for a 6 yard touchdown pass.  Morgan was 9 for 14 for 116 yards and Daphne took the 2013 Region 2 Championship with the 35-13 victory over the Pirates.

Fairhope fall to 6-2; 5-1, the Pirates will look to keep the #2 seed in the region for playoffs when they finish region play next week as they will host Northview.

Daphne wins the region which means they will have home field advantage within the region for the playoffs.  They improve to 6-2; 6-0 at will travel to Enterprise to finish up their region play.
