The DeKalb Saints put forth a solid defensive effort, but the offense was unable to put up enough points to pull out a victory in the team's season opener, last Thursday night in Baxer. Cornerstone Middle School scored on their first and last full drives of the game, and knocked off the local junior high squad, 14-0.
Sam Cass scored on a one-yard touchdown run to cap off an 11-play, 62 yard drive, which opened the game for Cornerstone. Tyler Winfree ran in the two-point conversion to give the Yellow Jackets an 8-0 lead.
The Saints' offense struggled to move the ball, as the team was able to pick up only one first down in the first half against the stingy Cornerstone defense.
