The Calera Eagles took care of business from the start against county rival Shelby County Wildcats.
The Eagles commanded both halves to finish with a 20-point win.
In the first quarter, Calera’s Tyler Ferguson and Dominic Lily were a dynamic duo. Lily caught two touchdown passes from Ferguson, the first one a 23-yarder in the back of the end zone and the other one off of a backfield screen that went for 31 yards.
Lily also scored a 65-yard touchdown off of a handoff after breaking a tackle on the sideline that would have only allowed him to gain five yards.
West Point commit Kyle Harrell got in the action in the second half. He intercepted a Mason Blythe pass that would have been a touchdown for the Wildcats in the end zone.
Then, from the three yard line, Harrell on a handoff turned on the after burners and displayed his 4.5 speed and took a play 97 yards all the way for a touchdown to seal the victory.
Shelby County’s Jemarius Mayfield had a good night for the Wildcats running the ball, but he and the offense just couldn’t get it going.
Calera improved to 4-1 and Shelby County falls to 2-4 on the season.
