DeQuincy, Basile scrimmage
By Chris & Laurie Mueller
The DeQuincy Tigers and Basile Bearkats got together last Thursday evening for a controlled scrimmage at G. Dalton Faircloth Stadium.
Both teams looked good as Basile scored twice and the Tigers scored once, with each team running 35 plays in the scrimmage.
DeQuincy scored on the 9th play of their first round of 15 plays. Adrian Gates scrambled straight up the middle for 43 yards and a touchdown. It turned out to be the Tigers only score of the night, but there were lots of things to be positive about. Jake Cooper did score for the second team offense on a nice run.
Basile scored on the 12th play of their first possession on a 15 yard run. The Bearkats also scored on their second possession on a 56 yard pass play.
DeQuincy's second possession was a rough one as Basile sacked Gates three times and the Tigers gained only 18 yards on 10 plays. DeQuincy ran into a little trouble on their last round of 10 plays as Gates was picked off twice. Gates was 4-12 for 17 yards in the contest. He also ran for 40 yards. Javion Leday had some nice runs and ended up with 35 yards.
The Tiger defense battled hard all evening, registering a couple of tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Delvin Baker had an interception to turn back a Basile drive.
The second team for DeQuincy did well. Jake Cooper hooked up with Noah Aultman on several nice pass plays and Cooper did a good job running the ball. The second team defense was outstanding as Basile never came close to scoring.
