Celebrating homecoming on Friday night, Hubbertville hosted the Lynn Bears in Wiley Hollingsworth Stadium. Unfortunately, the visiting team spoiled the Lions’ homecoming by defeating Hubbertville 31-20. The Bears took the opening kick down the field, utilizing only two plays to move the ball into the Lions’ red zone. Facing first and goal at the 10-yard line, Micah Cagle took the handoff, advancing three yards with Alex Barnes on the stop for the Lions.
Homecoming is always an exciting time of year, full of seeing old friends, remembering great times, and celebrating history. Returning alumni always hope to see their old high school team do well, and the Wildcats’ fans who braved the rain were not disappointed. In a game that saw both teams struggle with penalties and the elements, the Wildcats took a 31–20 victory over the Brilliant Tigers.
