Friday night had some Haleyville fans headed in opposite directions with two Varsity teams playing at the same time in different locations. At home, it was Senior Night and the Lions Football team was playing host to West Limestone in an Area game. Meanwhile, the Lady Lions Volleyball team, having already won their Area, had their first game of the Super Regionals at the Von Braun Civic Center against the Alexandria Valley Cubs.
The Lions at home scored first against West Limestone with a touchdown pass from Tanner Ivey to Matt Smith early in the first quarter. West Limestone took the lead early in the second quarter but Ivey ran in a 1 yard touchdown at the end of the half to put the Lions back up 12-7. The second half belonged to the Lions with a third quarter field goal, Smith with a 16 yard touchdown and a fumble recovery to end the game with a 29-7 final score.
The Lady Lions on the road came out strong with a 25-17 win to start the match against Alexandria but the next 3 games all went the other way, falling 23-25, 20-25 and 24-26 to end a terrific season for Haleyville Volleyball. We are proud of all of you and everything you acomplished over the season. Roar Lions!
