Oakman routs Hale County for region win

Posted

MOUNDVILLE — Oakman rolled up 42 points in the first half and cruised to a 49-14 victory over Hale County Friday night at Moundville.

Oakman’s Christian Hubbard totaled four touchdowns in the win — two rushing and two receiving — while Malachi Bridges threw a pair of touchdown passes.

The Wildcats took control of the game in the second quarter, putting up 28 points for a 42-7 halftime lead.

Hubbard put Oakman on the scoreboard first with a touchdown run at the 10:16 mark of the first quarter. After another score put the Wildcats on top 14-0, Hale County struck for a touchdown to cut the gap to 14-7 going into the second quarter.

Hubbard added another touchdown with 10:34 left in the second quarter. A long pass from Bridges to Dante Williams set up another Hubbard touchdown later in the quarter.

JT O’Rear closed out the half with an interception return for a score that pushed the Oakman lead to 42-7.

The fourth quarter was delayed when an Oakman player was injured and taken to the hospital.

Oakman Coach Ryan Hall said the player is expected to be OK.

For the Wildcats, Logan Martin and Sean Douglas added touchdowns in the game and Williams had an interception on defense.

Friday’s win gave the Wildcats a win over former coach Mark Hastings, who led the Oakman program for 10 years. He is in his first season at Hale County.

Oakman, which has won two straight games after suffering a two-game losing streak, heads into Thursday’s region final against Greene County in third place in the Class 3A, Region 4 standings behind Gordo and Winfield.

Oakman can lock up the third spot in the region with a win over Greene County.

With Friday’s win, the Wildcats earned a ninth straight trip to the state playoffs.
