Aliceville wrapped up an 8-2 regular season Friday night with a 38-12 win over rival Greene County. The Yellow Jackets suffered a bad loss last week at Class 6A Selma, but was able to wash the taste out of their mouths before the playoffs with the win over the Tigers.

“We had a fast start and it strengthened our team a lot,” Aliceville head coach Melvin Pete said. “It really helps and that (win) put us back on track.”

Devontae Wright caught the opening kickoff at the 16-yard line and returned it 84 yards for a touchdown to give Aliceville a 6-0 lead before either team had run an offensive play. Zavien Wilkins then ran for a 38-yard touchdown to put the Yellow Jackets ahead 14-0 after one quarter.

Quarterback Kavon McGraw found the end zone on a 16-yard run in the second quarter and then converted the two-point conversion for a 22-0 Aliceville lead. Greene County would get on the board before halftime when Devin Pearson ran for a 6-yard score to cut the Yellow Jacket lead to 22-6 before the half.
