Brandi!

On Thursday night the Opelika VG basketball team took on Beauregard and carried the game and took home a win with the score of Opelika 63 to Beauregard’s 15.

In VB Basketball, Opelika and Beauregard went head to head throughout the game. With 3.6 seconds on the clock, Beauregard throws the ball down court to Porterfield, where he hit a 3 pointer at the clock. That gives Coach Johnson his first win as a Beauregard coach by the score of Beauregard 79 Opelika 76. What a game on both sides.

2019-11-15 FB Opelika vs St Paul

On Friday night at Bulldog Stadium, it was a wet & cold place as Opelika & St Paul took the field in the second round of the AHSAA playoffs. And only one of the teams will advance to round 3 as they march to the Super 7. Opelika was behind in the first half as St Paul lined up for a field goal with only seconds on the clock as Jalen Stinson came from the left side of the line and caused a blocked kick and run over and picked up the ball and raced 70 yards to the other end zone for an Opelika TD the clock on “0” and 1st half over.

Eric Watts had a 1 yard run in the 3rd and another 1 yard run in the 4th quarter to nail the door closed for St Paul, who only in the 1st Qt and an FG in the 3rd.

Opelika will be traveling next week to take on Hueytown in round 3 of AHSAA playoffs.
