Murphy and McGill-Toolen are consistently two of the best teams in the football-rich state of Alabama. Last season, Mc-T, as they’re known, went to the state championship where they lost to a dominant Hoover team.
McGill-Toolen has dominated the rivalry lately, winning last season 21-14 and in 2016 43-0. Murphy will be looking to get one over on its rival in a rebuilding year for Mc-T. They’ve got a new offensive coordinator this year and will be looking for new stars to lead them to further glory in Alabama. It starts with a rivalry game against arch-rival Murphy.
It looked as if Murphy vs. McGill-Toolen was going to come down to the wire on Friday night. In the third quarter, the game was a tight one, with McGill-Toolen up 7-3. However, the McT offense turned it up in the fourth quarter, scoring 23 unanswered points on their way to a 30-3 victory over the Murphy Panthers. This game marks the 4th straight win for the Yellow Jackets over the Panthers and Mc-T’s 27th straight region victory. It was an ugly game at times, but McT turned it on when they had to. Once again, the Yellow Jackets look like a force in the state of Alabama.
