Lynn stormed back from a 28-0 deficit only to fall just short in a 49-48 shootout loss to Hubbertville at David Posey Memorial Field Friday at Lynn High School.

Behind quarterback Brody Meeks, who totaled 342 yards of offense and six touchdowns, Lynn staged an incredible rally, cutting the gap to a point after a touchdown and 2-point conversion with four minutes remaining.

However, Hubbertville went to the ground and was able to run out the clock and avert the upset-minded Bears.

Meeks had a hand in 46 of Lynn’s 48 points, completing 18-of-32 passes for 268 yards and five scores. He had touchdown passes of 65, 33, 22, 12 and 10 yards. He also rushed seven times for 74 yards and a touchdown. Meeks added one rushing two-point conversions and four passing two-point conversions.

Receiver Ben Cagle had eight catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns, Jeremy Tittle had four catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Brandon Heck and Dylan Murner added touchdown receptions.

Lynn (2-7, 1-6) trailed 22-0 after the opening quarter and cut the gap to 35-16 at the half.

The Bears close the season at home against Meek next week.


Meek 43, Shades Mountain Christian 13

At Hoover, Ty Griffith scored three touchdowns as the Meek Tigers earned a region road victory on Friday, beating Shades Mountain Christian 43-13.

Meek (3-6, 2-5) dominated the first half, taking control with a pair of second-quarter touchdowns. The Tigers led 16-7 after the first quarter and 30-7 at the half. Meek led 43-13 going into the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Seth Hayes also had a big game for the Tigers (2-7, 2-5), rushing for a touchdown and throwing a touchdown pass.

Scott Irving also added two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving.

On defense, Eli Wilson had a pair of interceptions.

Meek plays at Lynn in next week’s season finale.


South Lamar 48, Parrish 0

At Millport, Parrish dropped its fifth straight game on Friday, losing to the South Lamar Stallions in the final region game for both teams.

The Tornadoes, who have been hit hard by injuries, fielded just 14 players for the game and were down early to the Stallions.

Since sustaining a bevy of injuries against Cordova — losing five players — Parrish has managed just 28 points over the last four games.

Parrish (1-8, 1-6) closes the season at home against undefeated Fultondale next week.

South Lamar, which ended a 14-game losing streak in Week 4 at Lynn, is now 3-6, 2-5 on the season.
