And then there was one…

Saturday night both Greenville and Georgiana's Termite squads took the field.

For one team, Saturday night was their last night as an undefeated squad.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were that team.

Georgiana posted a 12-8 victory with all scores coming in the first half.

The Panthers struck first blood with a pass that led the receiver into the end zone.

The Panthers then posted a second score to take a 12-0 lead.

Greenville fought back. Fernandez Grey called his own number and found an open spot in the defense and ran for the touchdown. The Tigers tacked on the two-point conversion, but that was as close as they got for the rest of the night.

While the Termites were unable to keep their unbeaten streak active, the Mighty Mites showed that they could.

The seven and eight year old Tigers posted their second shutout of the season with an 18-0 upset of Georgiana.

Two weeks ago, Greenville, Georgiana and Red Level had the only unbeaten Mighty Mites squads.

That changed when Red Level knocked off Georgiana.

Last weekend, the Panthers were looking to do the same. But they were unable to.

"Everybody was talking about how impressive they were," said Elliott Lewis, coach of the Greenville Mighty Mites. "But we shut them down. It was huge, but they just couldn't run on us. We even brought out our second and third string defense on them. The team we are looking for is Red Level. Georgiana wasn't as hard as we thought they were going to be. But we swept them pretty good.

The Mighty Mites scored early and scored often in the first half of the game. Delino Lee took the snap down the field for the first touchdown, the two-point attempt was stopped, but the Tigers led 6-0.

From their, Lee handed off to DeVonte Posey. Posey carried the ball down the field for the score. But, for the second time, the two-point conversion was stopped.

Greenville tacked on their final score of the day when Lee dropped back and connected with Arlyric Knight for the touchdown.

Greenville's Mighty Mites will take a break from the county competition for a week to take on the squads from Atmore.

Then, they will be back in action two weeks in their final game of the regular season against Red Level.

The Pee-Wee squad picked up their first win of the season. The second one, however, has continued to elude them. They were unable to knock off the Panthers, falling 32-6.
