The Corinth High School Warriors defeated the Kossuth Aggies in a rivalry game Friday 26-15.
“They played their hearts out tonight,” said Corinth Coach Todd Lowery. “They came together as a team. It was a hard-fought game on both sides. Kossuth played their hearts out, too.”
Kossuth Coach Brian Kelly said Corinth played well.
“Hats off Corinth; they made the plays down the stretch,” Kelly said. “That’s what a rivalry game is about—fighting hard to the end.”
Action picked up in the second quarter with a 5-yard touchdown run by Kossuth’s Adarrius Moore.
Corinth answered on its next drive with two fourth-down conversions and a touchdown run by Jon D. Warren.
On the next drive, Kossuth Quarterback Matthew Bobo had a two-yard touchdown run, but the extra point failed.
In the opening drive of the second half, Corinth had a 27-yard touchdown run by Tameron Patterson.
Later, a bad snap over the Corinth kicker’s head put the ball in the end zone, and Kossuth went up 15-14.
In the fourth quarter, a strong punt by Corinth’s Michael Baugus put Kossuth on its 10-yard line, and the Aggies had to punt on the drive.
Patterson later scored on a 32-yard run to put Corinth up 20-15 after a failed two-point conversion.
On third down and 13 on its next drive Bobo delivered a long, accurate pass that was dropped, and the Aggies turned the ball over to Corinth. The Warriors scored on a 45-yard run by Chris Kelly.
Bobo was intercepted by Warren on the Aggies’ next drive, and the game ended with a final score of 26-15.
