Bears Move to 3-0
For the first time since the 1995 season, Alcorn Central has started their season 3-0.
Falkner won the toss, and elected to receive. The Golden Bears defense would force the Eagles to punt on their opening drive.
The punt was blocked, would be muffed by Alcorn Central and then was recovered by Alcorn Central.
The first play for the Golden Bear offense was a run for Colt Fields. Fields would take it to the house for a 39 yard touchdown. The two point conversion pass would fail and the Bears would lead 6-0 with 10:11 remaining in the first quarter.
With 5:32 to go in the first quarter Chris Nunley scored on a 4 yard touchdown run. The 2 point conversion was NO Good and the score was tied 6-6.
After a Falkner defensive stand, the Bears would punt. The punt had a bad snapped and then the Golden Bear punter would be flagged for intentional grounding which would set Falkner up in the red zone. One play later the Eagles scored on a 20 yard pass from Chris Nunley to Caden Jackson. The two point conversion was NO Good and Falkner would lead 12-6.
This would end the first quarter.
