Virtually unstoppable: DHS Tigers roll over Bibb County 67-0

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, September 11, 2002

The late arriving Tiger fans at Memorial Stadium could hardly get in their seats Friday night until the important region game between the Demopolis High School and Bibb County football teams was practically over.

The Tiger offense was virtually unstoppable no matter how far coach Doug Goodwin went down the depth chart, and the DHS defense did not let the Choctaws get beyond the 50-yard line all night.

The Bibb County Choctaws gave the Tigers a gift of a fumble on the kickoff. DHS took little time in scoring with a six-yard pass from quarterback Dusty Goodwin to Bart Pettus with 10:19 left in the first quarter.

The point-after-touchdown by Matt Chambless was good, and the score right off the bat was DHS 7-Bibb County 0.

Special teams did their part next with a blocked punt by William Scott, and then on the next drive, quarterback Goodwin took the ball himself for a five-yard TD with 7:43 left in the quarter. The PAT by Chambless was no good, however, and the score was DHS-13-BC 0.

Bibb County fumbled again, and the Choctaws paid for it with another great option toss from Goodwin to Marco Rembert for a 19-yard touchdown with 2:21 left in the first quarter.

A two-point conversion by Rembert was also good, and the score was DHS 21-BC 0.

In the second quarter, the offensive onslaught continued with a 15-yard TD pass from Goodwin to Pettus. With 9:30 left in the second quarter, the PAT by Devon Goodwin was good, and the score was DHS 28-BC 0.

The Choctaws were then intercepted by Ezell Braxton, and DHS quickly scored with a 24-yard Rembert TD run. The PAT by Devon Goodwin was blocked, and with 7:28 left in the second, the score was DHS 34-BC 0.

On the next drive, Goodwin passed to Rembert for 75 yards and another TD with 5:16 left in the first half. The PAT by Devon Goodwin was no good, and the score was DHS 40-BC 0.

Rembert contributed another eight-yard TD run with 50 seconds left in the half. The PAT by Steven Padilla was good, and the half ended with the score DHS 47-BC 0.

The third quarter opened with Devon Goodwin as quarterback for the first drive which was capped by a 60-yard TD run by Rod Jones. The PAT by Padilla was no

good, and with 10:31 left in the third, the score was DHS 53-BC 0.

Dontrell Miller was brought in as quarterback and he promptly threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Rod Mays. It was the first Tiger career pass and catch for each player.

The PAT by Padilla was good, and with 5:55 left in the third, the score was DHS 60-BC 0.

Miller continued his good work with his own 39-yard touchdown with 11:00 left in the fourth quarter. The PAT by Padilla was again good, and the final score was DHS 67-BC 0.

And by the way, another Miller TD score was called back because of a holding penalty.
