DEMOPOLIS — In a game that came down to the last possession, Jasper fell on the road at Demopolis 13-7 Friday night.
Penalties at key moments hurt the Vikings throughout the game, including on a final drive late in the fourth quarter.
“We haven’t had a problem with penalties this year, but we did tonight on both sides of the ball,” Jasper Coach Philip Bailey said. “When you’re playing a good team like that, you can’t put yourself behind the chains. We did that tonight all night.”
Demopolis, the No. 9-ranked team in Class 5A, moves to 6-0 on the season with the win. Jasper drops to 1-4.
