Summary:   
         In 1989, the Indians rolled into the title game against a very strong Pike County team with a perfect 15-0 record. Colbert County was defeated by Pike County in a hard fought 20-19 game that saw the Indians miss on a two point conversion that would have given them a lead late in the game.
         The Indian led 13-7 at halftime before Pike County scored two quick third quarter touchdowns to take a 20-13 lead with 5:58 remaining in the third. Colbert County pulled within a single point on its next possession by driving 72 yards in six plays. Quarterback Jason Clement completed a couple of long passes before Kenyatta Jones scored on a 12-yard run.
         Creasy decided to to attempt a two-point conversion. Quarterback Jason Clement was sacked on the play and the Indians still trailed 20-19 with 10:48 to play. After forcing a Pike County punt, the Indians drove 76 yards to the Bulldogs five before missing a 21-yard field goal attempt.
         A last play interception by Steve Coleman dashed any hopes of a comeback by the Indians. Steve Coleman finished with 194 yards rushing on 28 carries. Kenyatta Jones ran for 187 yards on 27 carries to pace Colbert County.
