Bert Thomas scored three touchdowns, one on the first Eagle scrimmage play of the game, and he later added a two point conversion reception as undefeated and fourth- ranked Autaugaville took control early and held on for an area-clinching 28 - 6 victory over the Trojans.

Walter Moss, Trojan starting quarterback, was out of the game with a chipped neck vertebrae.  His replacement, Josh Jenkins, was greeted rudely.  On the second play of the game, Nishanto Carroll forced and recovered a fumble at the Trojan 14, and Thomas scored on the next play.  On the extra point attempt, the snap was bad, but kicker Eric Seborn picked it up and tossed it to a wide open Thomas who cruised into the endzone for two points, and the Eagles were up 8 - 0 just 72 seconds into the game.

Things settled down a bit, but the Trojans could never get much going offensively.  Saint James picked up only 120 yards, 108 of them on the ground, while Autaugaville picked up 320 yards, split nearly evenly on the ground and in the air.  The Trojans only managed 38 yards of offense and a single first down in the opening half.

The Eagles scored twice late in the first half.  Marquis Forge scored on a 6 yard run.  A second two point conversion attempt failed.  Then, just before the half, Thomas broke loose on a 38 yard draw with coincidentally 38 seconds remaining in the second quarter.  This time Seborn kicked the extra point, and the Eagles were up comfortably 21 - 0 at halftime.

Thomas added his final touchdown run midway through the third quarter, a ten yarder.  Saint James scored its only touchdown after a nice kickoff return following the final Eagle touchdown.  Cade Armstrong scored from five yards out just before the third quarter ended.   The Trojans would not score again, but they had broken their eight year playoff hiatus, and looked, extremely warily, ahead to the top-ranked Saint Clair County Saints whom they would face in playoff round one.
