Lions lose jamboree game to Phil Campbell


Gage Key (36) hands off to Brodie Porter (12) as Blakes Anthony (28) looks for someone to block.

The Lions opened its 2019 season by hosting the Phil Campbell Bobcats in a jamboree game. The varsity teams competed the first three quarters of the game, and the junior varsity closed out the contest playing the fourth quarter. The Bobcats received the opening kick, advancing the ball from the five-yard line to the Lions’ 46-yard line. Hubbertville’s defense held the Bobcats on its opening possession, turning the ball over on downs at the Lions’ 48-yard line. The Lions could not capitalize on the field position and four snaps later, Phil Campbell took possession on its 48-yard line. Once again, the Lions’ defensive front held its ground and facing fourth down and seven at midfield, the Bobcats punted the ball away.
