Handley 48 Heard County 13

By: Wesley Kinsey
The Handley Tigers increased their consecutive home winning record to 27 as they toppled the Heard County Braves 48-13 at Wright Field in Roanoke Friday night. Coach Mike Battles notched his 59th win as Handley head coach. The night was destined to be memorable following delivery of the game ball via helicopter to injured senior Kiemon Sanders before kickoff.
Breyon Deberry bolted 68 yards on the first offensive play to score the first of Handley's touchdowns. Duran Zachary added a two yard power TD run with 7:44 to go in the first quarter and quarterback Trae Kyles posted an 83 yard keeper at 1:16 to give the Tigers a 21-0 lead at the end of the first. Deberry added another 38 yard score as did Zachary with a 24 yard jaunt.
Colby Floyd also found the endzone for the Tigers on on 2 yard run in the 4th. Quarterback Cody Foster added a touchdown with only 31 seconds left to play. The young Heard County Braves showed some fire on an odd second half play on a kickoff return.
Senior speedster Tyler Winn saw the ball pop in the air as another Brave tried to field it and hauled it in as he raced 62 yards for a score. Sophomore quarterback Jonathan Hunt looked impressive and added the Braves final score with a 13 yard keeper.
Handley begins their season 1-0 and begins region play next week on the road against B.B. Comer. Heard County has a week off before hosting Bowdon.
