HOLLY POND, Ala. – It was homecoming night for Holly Pond and the Broncos hosted the Vinemont Eagles who played the role of spoiler and left with a 38-12 win. The Broncos received the ball to start the game but that was short-lived when the ball was intercepted on their third play. The Broncos were able to keep the Eagles out of the end zone, but Nacho Salgado was able to put the Eagles up 3-0 with a 27-yard field goal with 5:55 remaining in the opening quarter.

Holly Pond wasted no time answering with a touchdown to push ahead 6-3 when with 3:31 remaining in the opening quarter Andrew Bell punched it in from 20 yards out. Vinemont regained the lead on the first play of the second quarter when Brodie Curvin muscled his way into the end zone from 6-yards out to make it 10-6. Three plays later the Eagles defense forced a turnover to give their offense great field position and two plays after that, Colby Miller scampered in from 8-yards out to put the Eagles up 17-6 with 10:09 remaining until halftime.

Vinemont added another touchdown late in the second quarter thanks to a 6-yard run from Miller to put the Eagles up 24-6 at halftime. The Eagles got another touchdown midway through the third quarter when Brody Speer slashed his way into the end zone from 16 yards out to extend the Eagles’ lead to 31-6. With 5:49 remaining in the game Isaac Moody punched it in from 2 yards away to put the Eagles up 38-6. The Broncos were able to find the end zone late in the game when Austin Marsh found Jayden Perkins for a 6-yard touchdown to give you a final score of Vinemont 38, Holly Pond 12.

Vinemont improves to 6-3 on the year with the win and the Eagles will wrap up the regular season at Cold Springs next Thursday. Holly Pond falls to 2-8 with the loss and will be closing out its regular season on the road against Fairview next Friday night.
