Hamburg and McGehee were both scoreless until shortly before the half when Hamburg kicked a field goal giving the Lions a 3-0 halftime lead in the Hooten’s kickoff doubleheader Tuesday night at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff’s Golden Lion Stadium. Hamburg scored twice more in the fourth quarter on a 59-yard run and a 2-yard run. The PATs were no good. Hamburg defeated McGehee 15-0.
In the second game, Monticello defensive back Jalen Handley’s interception set up a 12-yard touchdown run by Monticello running back Omar Simpson giving Monticello a 7-0 lead over White Hall at the end of the first quarter. But the Billies would not score again until late in the fourth quarter. Monticello fell to White Hall 36-14.
