Booneville pitches shutout over Alcorn Central on Homecoming
The Booneville Blue Devils picked up a big win over the Alcorn Central Golden Bears on Friday night.
Home win over a 3A opponent? Check. Homecoming victory? Check. First division win? Check.
The Blue Devils scored by every way possible during the game: pass, rush, defense and special teams.
The scoring got underway with a defensive score in the first quarter on a punt block recovered for a touchdown. Davian Price then returned a punt for the Blue Devils second score of the first quarter and a 13-0 advantage.
The first offensive score of the night came on a John Daniel Deaton second quarter 1 yard touchdown run. Deaton would also complete a 12 yard touchdown pass to Jackson McCoy.
Amoni Grizzard led Booneville with a pair of 2nd quarter touchdown runs.
The victory moved Booneville to 5-1 (1-0) as they prepare for a conference game against Belmont next Friday.
