Red Bay powers past Hamilton

There was a lot of offense in Red Bay’s Thurs. night win over Hamilton last week. Combined, both teams had almost 800 yards of total offense. It was Red Bay’s power run game and an opportunistic pass game that won the night, however. A three point game early in the third quarter turned into a Red Bay blowout by game’s end with the Tigers on top 54-27.

Red Bay had 463 yards of total offense with 364 yards coming on the ground. Jaxson Vinson accounted for 234 of the Tigers ground game and scored four touchdowns.

Red Bay struck first early in the first quarter on a 61-yard bomb from Gage Edgmon to Holden Inmon. Vinson added the two-point conversion to give the Tigers an 8-0 lead.

Hamilton answered as time expired in the opening period to tie the game 8-8.

Red Bay scored on a 7-yard run by Vinson midway through the second quarter and added a two-point conversion run to give the Tigers a 16-8 lead.

Hamilton answered a second time but missed on the two-point conversion, leaving the trailing Red Bay 16-14.

Red Bay scored again on their next drive on a one-yard run by Vinson. He also tacked on another two-point conversion run to give the Tigers a 24-14 lead.

The back-and-forth continued as the Aggies scored again, but, again, missed on the two-point conversion, leaving the Aggies down 24-20.

Just a few seconds later, as the first half came to an end, Red Bay scored again, on a 35-yard pass from Edgmon to Inmon to give the Tigers a 30-20 halftime lead.

Hamilton scored on their first drive of the second half to cut Red Bay’s lead to 30-27.

Red Bay scored on the ensuing drive on a four-yard run by Vinson to give the Tigers a 38-27 lead.

Red Bay’s defense finally got some stops ending the Aggies scoring stretch. The Tigers scored two more unanswered touchdowns to close out the game, a 38-yard run by Vinson late in the third quarter and a 73-yard run by Cody Carnes midway through the fourth quarter.

Edgmon didn’t throw the ball much, but made the most of the times he did, going 3-for-4 for 99 yards and two touchdowns.

Will West and Kyler Watson led the Red Bay defense with 29 combined tackles, West with 17 and Watson with 12. Both had 10 solo tackles each.

Red Bay travels to Lexington this week.
