The Jefferson Davis Academy varsity football team got another crack at Andrew Jackson Academy Friday night, Sept. 7, in Ehrhardt.

Last year in the SCISA 1A title game, Jefferson Davis Academy fell to Andrew Jackson Academy in a 34-30 thriller at Calhoun Academy.

Unfortunately for Jefferson Davis Academy, a different season and different venue yielded the same script as a year ago.

The Raiders were plagued by costly turnovers and mistakes in the rematch and fell by a score of 38-22.

The loss was the first for Jefferson Davis Academy. The team drops to 3-1.

Jefferson Davis Academy coach Michael Tindall said the opportunities were there.

"We had our chances, but didn't execute. We started off slow and simply made too many mistakes against a good Andrew Jackson football team.

With the win, Andrew Jackson Academy extended the state’s longest active high school football win streak to 40 games.

The Confederates were led on offense by Clay Brunson with 28 carries for 217 yards. He also scored a touchdown and four 2-point conversions. Tykel Hoover recorded 49 yards and a touchdown. Trey Pulaski had two catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns. Jon Schaffer had 17 yards on two carries and a touchdown.

For the game, JDA finished with 247 yards of total offense. Jimmy Bozard led the team with 185 yards rushing and a touchdown. Nick Darnell had 30 yards and Trent Jamison added 22 yards.

Defensively for the Raiders, Nick Darnell had a team-high eight tackles and a sack. Hunter Beach, Saint Angelo Davis and Jeremy Davis each finished with five stops.

"This was a tough loss, but we have to put it behind us and get ready for the next challenge," Tindall said.
