JASPER — The Hamilton Aggies were finally able to end their losing streak with a big win against the Curry Yellow Jackets in Jasper Friday, Sept. 30, with a score of 40-24
Hamilton opened the scoring and scored 16 points in the first quarter of the game.
They continued their scoring form with a touchdown in the second quarter of the game but were unable to keep Curry quiet as they scored a touchdown of their own.
The third quarter of the game was full of action, with Hamilton scoring 16 points and Curry fighting back with 12 of their own.
In the fourth quarter, Hamilton let up one touchdown but kept Curry at bay and finished the game out.
“I was real proud of my kids and my coaches. They put a lot into the week, and I was glad to see them get to celebrate the win,” said Hamilton Head Coach Barry Peoples.
Hamilton now has a record of 1-5 going into their game against Dora away from home on Friday, Oct. 7.
Hamilton has just four games left in the season, and they will look to improve on their poor record this year.
Their upcoming opponents come into the game with a 3-3 record and will likely test the Aggies as they have the home field advantage.
Fans and players will also be looking forward to the Aggies’ big rivalry game against the Haleyville Lions in just two weeks in Hamilton.
