"Our effort was real good," said Madison Academy head coach Eric Cohu. "We did really well offensively. We were hoping for the shutout but it didn't happen. A lot of guys contributed tonight. That's what happened."
After stopping the Yellow Jackets on their first possession, Madison Academy needed only one play to get in the end zone. Following a 44-yard punt return by Nick Haas to the 4-yard line, Malik Miller scored on the Mustangs first play from scrimmage. Chandler Trach's PAT made it 7-0.
On the Mustangs' next possession, quarterback Blake Coward connected with Haas on a 32-yard touchdown reception. Trach booted a 37-yard field goal on the second play of the second quarter to give Madison Academy a 17-0 lead.
With 7:30 remaining in the first half, Kerryon Johnson raced 43 yards for a touchdown. The PAT lifted the lead to 24-0.
Winston County replied with an 82-yard touchdown pass from Seth Blanton to Cody Henderson. The PAT was good to make the score 24-7.
LeMarcus Martin scored on a 40-yard scamper and Haas scored later in the second quarter giving the Mustangs a 37-7 halftime lead. Miller and Johnson scored their second touchdowns each in the third quarter for Madison Academy. Logan Hamlett added on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
Winston County's second half scores came on a Cole Haygood touchdown reception on the first possession of the fourth quarter and another touchdown reception by Austin Lewis, both from Blanton.
Winston County closed the season at 5-6, losing its last five games.
