The Bainbridge Bearcats seventh grade team held the Washington Middle School Tigers to just 6 points Thursday in a 14-6 win at Centennial Field.

Stingy defenses on both sides kept either team from running away with the score and demanded focus from the seventh grade players.

Fullback Jvon Lee scored first for Bainbridge was a 3-yard run. Kendal Jackson set the score up with a 33-yard kick off return, followed by Reshad Broadnax inching the ball closer to the goal line with a 17-yard run. Lee scored two plays later, followed by Broadnax’s 2-point conversion run to move the score to 8-0.
