By Wesley Kinsey

Six different Tigers found the end zone and two of those scored twice as Handley emptied the bench early against the Beulah Bobcats Friday night.

The Handley Tigers again went deep into the roster as they whipped Beulah 51-13 at Bobcat Stadium. After the Bobcats received the kickoff and were forced to punt from their own 31, Handley blocked the punt and set up shop near the Beulah goal line.

On the first offensive play of the game for the Tigers, Breyon Deberry took it in and Connor Boyd added the kick to make it 7-0 with 7:50 fo go in the first quarter. Following an interception by Anthony Foster that set the Tigers up at the Bobcat 38, Trae Kyles passed to a wide open Tevin Cook for another TD. The PAT failed and Handley led 13-0 with 6:21 left in the initial stanza.

The Tigers would lead 25 to zip following a snap over the Bobcat punters head picked up and run in by Duran Zachery and a 9 yard TD run by Herbert Staples set up by a dazzling punt return by Dexter Reese.

 In the second quarter, Breyon Deberry added his second TD on a 40 yard pass reception from Kyles 9:35 to go. Herbert Staples exhibited his blazing speed on a 57 yard run from scrimmage and Handley led 37-0.

Beulah managed a touchdown as time expired in the first half to make the halftime score Handley 37 Beulah 7.In the second half, Kyles found Dexter Reese for yet another TD and the third quarter ended 44-7.

Handley would add another score on a 19 yard scamper by backup quarterback Cody Foster. Beulah added a late score in the 4th to make the final 51-13.

 Handley moves to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in Region play and sets up a battle of the unbeatens at Wright Field next week as Clay County defeated Leeds 14-7.
Coach Mike Battles secured his 61st win as Handley head coach with the victory.
