|AC improves to 2-0|
ACCS head football coach Paul Hayles called it one of his most heartbreaking losses last year when his team lost to Hillcrest 28-12 after scoring the first touchdown of the night and turning the ball over countless times.
The Rebels avenged that loss playing with a heavy heart Friday in Natchez, defeating the Cougars 28-14.
The AC football team attended the funeral of Hayles' mother, Jeanette Marie Hayles, earlier in the day.
Hayles had to be thinking back to last year after ACCS fumbled the ball on its first play, had a false start on its second play and fumbled the ball on its third play.
Then on its next possession, Hillcrest's Anthony Brooks picked up an ACCS fumble and ran 23 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good and the Cougars led 7-0.
"We had a kind of inauspicious start," Hayles said. "I had a full-blown flashback. I was not a happy camper. But the kids overcame that."
But AC countered as Rusty Blackwell scored two touchdowns in the second quarter on runs of six and eight yards, while Duncan Guedon added a two-point conversion run to give ACCS a 14-7 halftime lead.
"I knew we could do it, it was just a matter of settling down," Hayles said. "We have a brand new quarterback who was starting his first game so when we caught our breath, things started going our way. Fortunately, our defense stayed solid."
Junior Johnny Smith was starting in place of senior Kent Yates, who broke his arm last week.
A 2-yard TD run by Christopher Perry put the Rebels up 20-7. In the final period, Brandon Sanders rambled 76 yards for a score and added the two-point conversion.
Sanders finished with 169 yards rushing on 17 carries to go with three kick returns for 67 yards while Blackwell ran 20 times for 101 yards.
Perry added 12 carries for 58 yards.
ACCS travels to Liberty to take on Amite School Center Friday.
"They have always been a big rival and will be much improved with Ray Olive coaching them," Hayles said. "We just have to take care of the football."
