The tale of two halves was not a pretty story Friday.
Madison County soared to a 20-7 first half lead over Apalachee on Homecoming Friday night. But after the band, balloons and all the Homecoming candidates in shiny, pretty dresses left the field, Apalachee returned from the locker room and issued a bitter blow to the Raiders, outscoring the home squad 49-0 in the second half, en route to a 63-20 Wildcat victory.
Madison County couldn’t stop the Apalachee ground game, which tallied 485 yards on 63 carries, a 7.5 yard-per-carry average. Meanwhile, the Red Raiders struggled to hold on to the football, throwing two interceptions and giving away one fumble.
Cedrick Bush heads for the opening down the field during one of his 13 carries last Friday night. Bush racked 172 rushing yards during the game. Zach Mitcham/staff
