Chipley pulls away to take 30-24 win from Graceville

In a Tiger versus Tiger matchup Friday night, the Graceville Tigers gave it their all in every quarter, leading the visiting Tigers much of the way.  In the end, it was Chipley on top 30-24.

Joe Claiborne had an MVP night for the Graceville Tigers with two touchdowns and a safety recorded.  Xavian Sorey had a stellar 72-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, lighting up the scoreboard and bringing the crowd to their feet.  

Claiborne finished the night with 16 carries for 79 yards.  

This was Graceville’s second year in a row to battle the Chipley Tigers through to the end.  Last year, in a disappointing season, the home field was switched and the visiting Graceville Tigers came up short just four points in a 28-24 final.  

The Tigers will have an open week next Friday night to give them a little extra time to get ready for a trip to Holmes County on September 14.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
