CURRY — For a fleeting moment early in the first quarter, there was an air of excitement at Hudson-O’Rear Stadium in Curry Friday night as the home standing Curry Yellow Jackets found themselves in a 7-7 tie with perennial powerhouse Fayette County.
After Fayette jumped to an early 7-0 lead, when Carter Sanford connected with Roc Peoples for an 11-yard touchdown, Curry answered swiftly when Andrew Stewart hit Ethan Wideman in stride down the left sideline for a 76-yard touchdown to knot the game at 7-7.
It didn’t take long for Fayette to deflate any momentum Curry may have enjoyed.
The Tigers would add two more scores over the next 4:34 to go ahead 21-7 and would essentially put the game away with two second-quarter touchdowns to lead 35-7 at the half en route to a 48-23 victory.
Fayette emptied their bench to start the second half and after a scoreless third quarter the Tigers would extend their lead to 42-7 with 9:40 remaining in the game when Jason Robinson scored from 55 yards out.
Curry made the score respectable in the fourth quarter with touchdown runs by Nate South and Aaron Oswalt. South scored from 29 yards out while Oswalt ran it in for a 28-yard score. Consecutive two point conversions closed the gap to the final margin.
Curry, under first year head coach Jeff Foshee, will be looking for their first victory of the season next Friday night, hosting Hanceville in a non-region game.
