Phillips High School
BEAR CREEK — The Flame from Shoals Christian rolled into town Friday night, Sept. 8, and came away with a near shut out on Phillips High School with a score of 52-7.
On opening play, it was noticed the scoreboard was malfunctioning, and the time was “kept on the field,” according to the announcer. Phillips received the kick off and began a drive on their 32-yard line, but on second down, the ball was fumbled, and the Flame was there for the recovery.
