Red Devils send 2 teams to title games

Three Fyffe youth football teams made it to their conference championship games last week and two of them advanced to play in their league championship games on Saturday.

Fyffe’s youth football program is a part of the North Alabama Football League. The League divides teams into three age groups.

C-teams are comprised of seven and eight-year-olds, B-teams are for nine and 10-year-olds and A-teams are made up of 11 and 12-year-olds.

The C-team got off to a blazing hot start winning their first seven games. The team outscored their opponents 216-12 in those seven wins and shut out five teams during that span.

The young Devils faced their toughest opponent of the year in their final regular season game against Albertville. Both teams battled back and forth but Albertville edged Fyffe 38-37 and handed the Red Devils their first loss of the year.

The team bounced back for last Saturday’s division title matchup with Geraldine. Fyffe dominated from start to finish and beat the Bulldogs 28-0.

The Red Devils finish their season at the NAYF C-team championship game where they face Sardis. Kickoff is Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Albertville High School.

The B-team started their season off with a 27-6 win over Grant before falling flat in their next three games and losing to Crossville, Fort Payne and Guntersville by a combined score of 62-19. The Red Devils fought back to make their record 3-3 by winning their next two games over Gaston and Arab. They fell to Albertville 7-0 in their final regular season game and then defeated Gaston again to reach their division championship game against Crossville. The Red Devils put up a better fight against Crossville this time, but they lost 14-6 and ended their season with a 5-5 record.

Fyffe’s A-team got off to a 2-0 start with wins over Geraldine and Grant before losing to Crossville 33-12 in their third game.

They bounced back with a 40-0 win over Fort Payne Gold but dropped another game the following week to Guntersville 26-6.

The Red Devils have ripped off five-straight wins since then, including two postseason victories where they shut out Geraldine and Crossville by a combined score of 51-0.

Fyffe’s A-team will face the Grant Patriots on Saturday in their league championship game. Fyffe squeaked by with a 27-26 win in their Sept. 3 matchup in the second week of the season.
