Cottondale celebrates homecoming with huge 44-8 win

  • Published in Sports

The Cottondale Hornets were on a mission Friday night and when the final seconds ticked off the clock, it was MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!  They concluded a week of homecoming festivities with a solid 44-8 win over North Bay Haven.  This made the fourth win in a row for the Hornets who improve to 4-2 on the season. 

It was a team effort with their first score of the night coming on an Issac Brincefield run to the promise land. Dalvin Barnes made the two-point conversion look like taking candy from a baby and the Hornets had an 8-0 lead. 

North Bay Haven’s defense hardly had time to catch their breath before Jalen Redding made it into the endzone on a short run.  Just like moments earlier, Dalvin Barnes made good on his second two-point conversion and the Hornets had a 16-0 lead and never looked back. 

It appeared the Redding – Brincefield was the tag team to conquer with North Bay Haven not up to the task.  Both had another rushing touchdown on the night. Dalvin Barnes went to the air to find Brincefield for another touchdown making it a 36-0 shutout at halftime. 

The Hornets took the field following the break and picked up right where they left off, making sure they picked up a win on the seniors’ last homecoming game. Dalvin Barnes went to the air again finding Eriq Hendricks for a 33-yard pass for their final touchdown. Once again, it was Barnes on the two-point conversion making it a 44-0 game before the fourth quarter began. 

Bay Haven scored their only touchdown and conversion in the fourth quarter.

Cottondale will be back on the practice field Monday getting ready for a trip to Wewa to take on the Gators.  Wewa will enter the context with a 4-3 record and the Hornets will have their sights set to make it 4-4.

Sneads Junior Varsity = PERFECT SEASON

  • Published in Sports

The Sneads junior varsity football team completed their season last Thursday with a 33-0 shutout of the Chipley Tigers.  Fans in Jackson County know well it’s always great to beat the neighboring Tigers in any sport and none was more special than this one. It competed a perfect season for them.  

Ric Reed found the endzone and put the first points on the board in the second quarter of play to put Sneads in the lead. That score held till the halfway mark in the game. 

Things took a turn for the better following the halftime break with Sneads adding another pair of touchdowns.  Reed tacked on two more touchdowns in the third quarter making it a 19-0, thanks to Anthony Moran kicking it right through the uprights on one of those touchdowns. 

In the fourth quarter, Donte’ Holden joined the scoring parade with a touchdown of his own with Reed adding his fourth on the night.  Two more kicks through the uprights by Anthony Moran and Sneads had a commanding 33-0 win, solidifying their undefeated season. 

Following the game, a very happy coach Charles Kent summed it up in short rather quickly, “WOW! I am so proud of our guys. They grew up over the last few months. Our guys have built character and overcome adversity at times. To have an undefeated season makes all of coaches feel really good, it makes us feel like our guys bought in to what we were teaching them and that they trusted in us.”  

Sneads finished the season with 20 players and three coaches.

Congratulations to the Sneads junior varsity football team, their coaches, and Sneads High School from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County TIMES!

Blessing of the Fire Engine

The community gathered last Thursday evening to witness the blessing of the newest addition to the Marianna Fire Department. The 100-plus crowd joined hand-in-hand, circling the fire engine as they gathered to welcome in the newest ‘toy’ and offer congratulations to the department. 

Marianna Fire Chief Nicky Lovett felt very blessed, “This is a great day for the Marianna Fire Department. We are still learning about all the bells and whistles on it but it is a great day for our department.” 


Commissioners declare state of emergency in light of Hurricane Michael

The Jackson County Commissioners called a special meeting Monday at 11:30 to discuss the county’s position on preparations for Hurricane Michael. 

Emergency Management Director Rodney Andreasen addressed the board saying emphatically, “To be honest with you, this is one that Jackson County has never experienced before and this is going to be bad. What we are looking at now is this morning we were looking at a category one and as of one hour ago, we are looking at a category 3 coming into Panama City at 120 mile-an-hour wind and exiting the county at as a category 2. The eye is selected to go over between Grand Ridge and Sneads and go up through eastern part of the community.  They say it could reach category 4 level so what we are doing at this time, we had all the department heads and several cities in attendance and to make it the safest we can, we are expecting tropical force winds into the county at around 7 p.m. so we are looking at around 39 miles per hour into the night.  In talking with the school board, we are going to open the shelter at 7 a.m. tomorrow. We are going to open as soon as the schools close at 3 p.m. today, we are going to get the PSN people in there to start setting up and the animal control people as well in case we need a pet friendly shelter. Tomorrow morning, we will start moving the PSNs at 7 a.m.”  

Andreasen said they will be coordinating that with Calhoun and St. Joe because they do house their special needs people. We will get them moved in first. He said general shelters will open at 10 a.m. and after tropical force winds reach 39 miles per hour they will not move any ambulances, anything because it is simply too dangerous. They will activate to level one at that time Tuesday morning on a skeleton crew because Andreasen says it will be a great strain on folks that he has working in there.  At 1 p.m. they will take their whole crew and everybody will be on staff for 24 hours.
