St. Al falls against Greenville-St. Joe

Published 1:03 am Saturday, October 3, 2015

St. Aloysius welcomed star running back DeMichael Harris back into the lineup — and then promptly lost two more starters, as well as another game.

Harris, last year’s Vicksburg Post Offensive Player of the Year, ran for two touchdowns in his first game since injuring his ankle more than a month ago, but it wasn’t enough as the Flashes lost 40-14 to Catholic school rival Greenville-St. Joseph.

St. Al (1-6) wide receiver Brandon Teller injured his knee on the opening kickoff, and lineman Cole Yearwood hurt his knee on the first defensive series. Neither returned, and it was uncertain how serious their injuries are.

“We didn’t want to lose anybody, but Cole and Brandon have both been playing really well. Hopefully we’ll get some good news on them,” St. Al coach BJ Smithhart said.

St. Joe (6-1) outscored St. Al 18-0 in the second half.

“I just think they did a good job stopping the run, and they had good players in the secondary that made plays. We needed to make a few more plays,” Smithhart said.

Tallulah Academy 44, Mt. Salus 6

Tallulah Academy quarterback Mason Todd threw two touchdown passes and added 154 yards and two more scores on the ground as the Trojans (5-1) hammered Mt. Salus (0-5) in an MAIS eight-man game.

Herraney finished with 161 yards and three TDs on the ground, and also completed 11 of 16 passes for 148 yards. Cole Delaney ran for 157 yards and two scores, and Colby Clark had 77 yards and three TDs for SIA.
