FLASH NOTES: Vinemont makes the first of consecutive visits to Blount County the next two Fridays. The Eagles are in Blountsville this week, meeting a J.B. Pennington squad that was beaten in every way possible by Region 6 leader Fultondale at home last Friday.
Vinemont struggled in its game at Priceville, falling behind by two touchdowns and unable to adjust. The Eagles did get a pair of touchdown drives, but it was too little, too late and the chance to resume regional play with a 3-3 record was denied.
The Eagles will be a factor in determining the playoff positioning the next three weeks as Pennington, Susan Moore and Holly Pond are like Vinemont, contending for a ticket to the November schedule.
The Eagles are going for their first victory away from home for new coach Stephen Robinson. The Tigers are only 1-2 in games played this season in Blountsville.
