Alcoa Dominates Battle of State Champions
The Alcoa Tornadoes put the hammer down on the Falcons of Fulton at Bob Black Stadium in Knoxville to the tune of 46-8.
The game started as the pundits would have thought with neither team gaining an advantage and defense being the order of the day.
Then the turnover reared its ugly head.
Brandon Warren, the top rated prep player in the state of Tennessee, recovered the first of multiple Fulton miscues and two pass plays later Joei Feigler hit Kyrus Lanxter and the Tornadoes led 6-0.
Warren, who has committed to play college football for the Seminoles of Florida State, struck again this time intercepting a pass and taking it in for the score and Alcoa was up 12-0.
It seems so redundant but another Warren fumble recovery and a Feigler to Dustin Lindsey screen but the Tornadoes up 18-0 and that score stood until the half.
The second half belonged to Kyrus Lanxter and the defense. Fulton opening drive of the second half resulted in a punt and Alcoa took one play and Feigler threw 34 yards to the junior Lanxter and Alcoa was up 25-0.
The next few sequences were a blur for the Falcons as Lanxter and sophomore Brian Sommer intercepted passes on consecutive drives and brought them to the house and Alcoa increased its lead to 39-0 in a matter of minutes.
With the game well in hand a late touchdown by junior Chris Shiverdecker and a Fulton score brought the final to 46-8.
The Alcoa defense forced the Falcons into seven turnovers and Fulton was forced to play untested youngsters at the most important position with the pre game suspension of starting quarterback Jack Wagner.
The Falcons will build on this game and finish the season strong.
The Tornadoes finally have their swagger back and now start the long and winding road that leads to Murfreesboro and another AA state title.
