WOODVILLE — Justin Foster scored a pair of touchdowns as Donoho won its third straight game.

Fultondale 39, Wellborn 22

FULTONDALE — Although Wellborn was able to take an early lead, it took everything to get back in the game in the fourth quarter and eventually Fultondale was just too much for the Panthers.

Kevin Mixon, who finished with 81 yards, scored a 3-yard touchdown run to open up the game before Wellborn was held off the board the remainder of the first half, trailing 18-7 during the break.

It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that the Panthers got back on the board. Chantz Goodman and D.J. Rhoden both scored on the ground, cutting Fultondale’s lead down to 25-22. However, Fultondale returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown and later score again.

Goodman finished the night with 61 yards, and Rhoden rushed for 64 yards.

Saks 63, Ashville 20

Timothy Hawkins would also have two interceptions for touchdowns, as well. Paul Hubbard had a 24-yard touchdown reception from Hawkins and Forbes also had a 15-yard touchdown run. Chris Troge joined the scoring committee with a 65-yard touchdown run of his own.
