On paper, it looked like a pretty even matchup, and it probably was, but the final score didn’t show it as Anna-Jonesboro doubled up Massac County, 41-20, last Friday night, Sept. 9.

Things started off well for Massac as the Patriots, with the help of some ill-timed penalties on Anna, held off a scoring threat by the Wildcats and took possession. More penalties, on both sides, and a couple of Brody Smallman passes to Hunter Box and Kris Garnett, got Massac across mid-field, and then on a fourth down and 8, Smallman found Tyrus Riley open for a 30-yard “catch and run” touchdown strike. Massac’s point after kick was short, and the Patriots claimed their only lead of the night with 5:23 on the clock.
