Central-Phenix City 48, Jeff Davis 13: Red Devils prevail amid possible boiler leak at Cramton Bowl

October 6, 2012 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- A possible boiler leak at Cramton Bowl forced a delay in Friday night's game between Jeff Davis and Central-Phenix City, which the Red Devils won 48-13.

The potential leak was on the east side of the stadium, and officials moved both teams to the west sideline.

Sgt. Jerry Boykins of the Montgomery Police Department released the following statement: "There was possibly a boiler leak according to the fire department. The fire department checked things out and determined everything to be OK. As a precaution all fans in the eastside stands were moved to the west side and the game was resumed. There were no injuries related to this incident."

Central led 35-7 midway through the third quarter when the game was delayed. Central defeated Jeff Davis 48-13.

The stadium, which opened in 1922, recently underwent major renovations. A multipurpose facility was added behind the south end zone and opened this year.

Both teams' locker rooms are under the east stands.

Records: Central 4-1, 2-1 Class 6A Region 3; Jeff Davis 0-5, 0-3. Next: Central, home vs. Auburn, Friday, 8 p.m.
