CURRY — Fueled by the one-man wrecking crew of Zachary Campbell, the Hanceville Bulldogs spoiled Curry’s homecoming on Friday night at Hudson-O’Rear Stadium, beating the Yellow Jackets 50-22.

Campbell accounted for six touchdowns, four through the air and two on the ground.

Things got off to a positive start for Curry. Ethan Wideman scored the game’s first touchdown when he scored from 42 yards out with 9:09 left in the opening quarter. The two-point conversion gave the Yellow Jackets an 8-0 lead.

The lead was short-lived, however, as the Bulldogs scored 50 unanswered points.

On Hanceville’s first play from scrimmage, Campbell went 56 yards to the end zone. The two-point conversion evened the score at 8-8 with 5:11 to go in the first quarter.

Campbell scored again on a 14-yard run for a 16-8 lead midway through the first quarter. Campbell then took to the air for a 61-yard missile to a wide open Brodie Malcom for another Bulldogs score with 19 seconds left in the first quarter to go up 22-8. Hanceville (3-3) added two more scores in the second quarter.

Campbell threw a 13-yard pass to Malcom at the 7:11 mark and he hit Trevor Shadden with a 24-yard scoring strike late in the late to virtually put the game out of reach as the Bulldogs enjoyed a comfortable 38-8 halftime lead.

Things didn’t get any better for Curry in the second half as Hanceville scored two more touchdowns to increase its lead to 50-8 by the end of the third quarter.

Curry scored the game’s final two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Andrew Stewart made the score 50-14 with a one-yard run with 11:55 remaining and reserve quarterback Chance Luker hit Wideman on a 46-yard scoring pass with 1:10 left on the clock to close out the scoring for both teams.

Curry (0-5) will look to earn its first win of the season next week as they travel to Haleyville for a Class 4A, Region 5 tilt.
