             The Blount Leopards came up short in defending their state title but did accomplish something no other team had done all season. They scored a rushing touchdown against the Gadsden defense. In the third quarter Gadsden running back Jimmy Williams, who rushed for 107 yards on 31 carries, scored on a 12 yard run to make the score 17-7 in favor of the visitors.
             They later added a field goal to seal the victory. It was Gadsden's second state championship as they also claimed the 1986 title. Blount was led by Farley Love at quarterback. He completed 8 of 22 passes for 153 yards but suffered three interceptions.
