For the first half of the football game, it was the worst of times for Madison County’s offense. Try as hard as they might, they still could not score. It was the best of times in the second half as the Cowboys poured some pain on the Jefferson County Tigers in football action played at Death Valley in Monticello.
The Tigers scored first as they intercepted the ball in one end zone and ran it all the way back to the other end zone.
As the Cowboys were tentative and lackluster on offense in the first half, the Tigers smelled an upset as they went into the locker room leading 7-0.
Coming out in the second half, the Cowboys found their groove and went on a tear. Behind strong running by Tommie Young and Deontaye Oliver, the Cowboys racked up 42 points and ended the game winning 42-7.
