Willie Miller accounted for three touchdowns in the first half and scored another to begin the second half in leading Clay-Chalkville to a 45-17 victory over Gadsden City on Nov. 1 in Clay.
The Cougars (9-1) went up early on Miller’s 8-yard touchdown run and scored less than two minutes later after an interception. Clay-Chalkville extended its lead to three scores on Miller’s 2-yard run to close out the first quarter.
Gadsden City got a 30-yard field goal from Carlos Flores on its next drive but couldn’t muster any more offense the first half.
The Cougars took a 31-3 lead into the break, as Demarcus Burris scored on a 5-yard run and Jaren Van Winkle kicked a 20-yard field goal.
Miller scored his final touchdown on the Cougars’ first drive of the second half and extended its lead to 45-3 on a 9-yard run from Damione Ward.
The Titans (3-7) finally found their offense in the fourth quarter and got in the end zone on a 4-yard pass from DeMarcus Macon to Jakari Embry.
Embry capped the scoring on a recovered fumble after a high snap on a Cougar punt sailed over the head of the kicker and back into the end zone.
Macon finished 15-of-28 passing for 197 yards. Jamontez Woods gained 35 yards on 19 carries and caught four passes for 68 yards.
