Troup makes the most of its yards to stop AG


One wouldn’t expect almost 1,000 yards of offense produced in Friday’s rainy conditions. Both the Alba-Golden Panthers and visiting Troup Tigers simply ran amok in Troup’s 42-26 win.

Panther Head Coach Drew Webster commented, “We won practically every aspect of the game, except on the scoreboard.” 

Panther Jon Chadwick churned out 278 yards rushing on 27 carries and teammate Austin Hartley tallied 201 yards on 31 carries. The production was eclipsed by the Tigers who managed to score the points with which such statistics are associated. 

A last second score as time expired in the first half put Troup up by 14 points going into the break. It was perhaps the key play of the game.

“Had we been able to prevent that score with 4 seconds remaining in the half, the momentum would have swung to our favor, and it would have been a six point game,” explained Webster. 

The team fought hard, but the Tigers were too much to overcome. 

The Panthers will face their Wood County rival Quitman Bulldogs Friday.  After traveling to Quitman this week, the Panthers wrap up district play at home against Frankston.
