Kingwood 69, Glenwood 49: Undriel Copeland scores 5 TDs for Gators in loss

Special to the Ledger-EnquirerSeptember 14, 2013 

Alabaster, Ala. -- Kingwood's Gavin Sumrall shredded Glenwood's secondary for 8 touchdown passes and threw for 490 yards leading the home standing Lions to a 69-49 shootout here Friday night in AISA region 1 action.

Sumrall threw three touchdowns in the first half but outdid himself in the third quarter as he threw for four more to give Kingwood a 59-42 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Sumrall's final score went to his brother, Gage in the fourth quarter, this one covering 57 yards. Gage also scored in the fourth period on a 22-yard end around. For the game, Sumrall completed 21 passes on 36 attempts and his eight scores.

Sumrall's outburst overshadowed Glenwood's Undriel Copeland, who had his best game at running back for the Gators. Copeland kept Glenwood in the ball game as he scored five running touchdowns, including three in that wild third period and added a two-point conversion.

Copeland finished with 21 carries for 206 yards and his five scores but the Gators fell to 1-3 on the year despite his efforts.

It will get no better for the Gators as next week they return to Sammy Howard field and host two-time defending AISA Class AA and No. 1 ranked Edgewood Academy at 8:00 p.m.
