TIFTON — The Tiftarea Academy Junior Pro Panthers opened their season Thursday, Sept. 5 at home against Deerfield-Windsor. The young team, made up of fifth and sixth graders, did well against the Junior Pro Knights. Both teams struggled to find the end zone until the second half when Deerfield broke a long touchdown run in the third quarter. The Junior Panthers responded with several strong runs by running back Ben Matt and quarterback Logan Crosson (above). The Panthers finally got on the scoreboard in the 4th quarter on a five yard touchdown run by Crosson. The extra point conversion was unsuccessful, resulting in a 6-6 tie game. The Junior Pro Panthers will travel to Thomasville this Thursday to play the Brookwood Junior Pro Warriors.
