Haleyville Lions do well at Brooks 7-on-7 passing camp
By Jesse Lamar
Sports Reporter
KILLEN  -  The Haleyville Lions traveled to Brooks High School Friday, July 11, to compete in a 7-on-7 passing camp.  The Lions did very well in pool play, going undefeated.
Once in tournament play, the Lions put up a big win over Deshler High School. A loss to Sheffield High School in the second round of the single elimination tournament knocked the Lions off the bracket, sending them home.
The Lions started out pool play with a shutout 19-0 win against Shoals Christian. In the next game, the Lions used both a solid defense and offense to beat out Deshler High School’s B-Team 29-9.
Haleyville’s next opponent was Sheffield High School who proved to be a test for the Lions. Haleyville started out the game with a score on the first drive that was answered back by a score from the opposing team. Neither team successfully converted on their extra-point conversion.
The Lions came up with an interception to turn the tide, but a play later, Haleyville turned right around by throwing an interception of their own. The teams swapped hits until a solid defensive stand from Haleyville kept Sheffield out of the end zone on fourth-down. As the buzzer went off to end the 20 minute game, Haleyville held a 13-12 lead.
After a 30 minute break, the Lions retook the field to play against Deshler High School’s varsity team. Deshler put up the first points of the ballgame, but the Lions kept it close, scoring on their first drive. An interception on the first play of Deshler’s next drive gave Haleyville the lead.
The Lions added onto their lead scoring another touchdown the following drive. Another defensive stop from Haleyville allowed them to regain possession of the ball. Haleyville added their final touchdown of the game before the buzzer sounded ending the game in Haleyville’s favor 27-16.
After a lunch break, the Lions started off tournament play with another win over Deshler before being put out of the tournament by Sheffield in their second matchup of the day.
