Now, the only thing missing is a football stadium.

After holding Valwood School to minus-15 total yards and without a first down in the first half, no one could have expected Autauga Academy to maintain the same level of intensity in the second half of Saturday’s meeting in the second annual Southeastern Commission of Independent Schools’ Kickoff Classic at Cramton Bowl.

The Generals came out flat in the third quarter and the Valiants took advantage of it, scoring a pair of quick touchdowns to pull back into the contest before the Generals answered with a late touchdown to secure a 38-29 victory to extend their winning streak to 14 games.
