At Hubbertville, the Hubbertville Lions battled back from a three-touchdown deficit to beat Parrish 31-25 in overtime Friday night.

Parrish led by 25-3 with 9:29 left in the fourth quarter before the Lions put together a torrid finish.

Hubbertville recovered an onside kick and scored two touchdowns in the final seven minutes of regulation — including one after a blocked punt — to tie the game at 25-25. Parrish had its chances with a short field goal in the closing seconds, but the Tornadoes couldn’t connect.

In overtime, the Lions scored on two plays to take the lead. Hubbertville held Parrish out of the end zone to get the win.

"We couldn't stop them," Parrish coach Jarrod Wooten said. "It was one of those deals where everything that could go wrong, does go wrong. I have to give Hubbertville credit. Their guys never gave up. It's a tough loss."

Parrish (1-1, 0-1) was led by Jermichael Harris, who had 128 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. He added an 84-yard interception return for a score. Defensively, Brodrick Sanders had 10 tackles, forced a fumble and a fumble recovery.

Reginald Harris had nine tackles, a tackle for loss and an interception.

Parrish took a 6-3 lead in the second quarter after a Jermichael Harris 26-yard touchdown run. Spencer Piper added a 3-yard touchdown run to put Parrish up 13-3. Harris added a 14-yard touchdown in the third quarter and returned the interception for the score in the fourth quarter. Hubbertville got three touchdowns from Aaron Dillard in the game.

The Tornadoes host defending state champion Marion County next week. The Red Raiders beat Berry 62-6 on Friday.
