The 2022 high school football season in West Alabama came to a close Friday night but the second season also known as the AHSAA playoffs starts next week. Here is a look at how things wound up this week:
The Alabama Christian Academy (ACA) Patriots (4-1) put up a dominant performance for its homecoming game and defeated the Hale County Wildcats (2-3) 41-26 on Friday night, claiming its fourth straight win of the season.
The Hale County Wildcats (4-1, 2-1) had a cat fight against the Southside Selma Panthers (1-4, 0-3) on Saturday night. The teams opted for a Saturday kickoff due to Southside Selma quarantining the last two weeks after experiencing COVID-19 exposure. The Panthers played valiantly despite not practicing the last two weeks but the Wildcats won the game 27-16.
