Junior running back Gary Quarles gained 193 on 17 carries with three scores to lift Paul Bryant to their first victory of the season.

Demopolis            44          Central          0

The struggles continue for the Central Falcons as the Demopolis Tigers took control early and never looked back. Demopolis running back A.J.
