Dadeville traveled to Pike County on Friday to take on the Patriots for Pike’s very first home game in its new football stadium. It was a high-energy atmosphere for the Patriots who left with a 42-0 shut out of the Tigers, who will be looking to find some positives to close out the season.

There were a lot of positives to take from Dadeville’s 8-2 loss last week against Montgomery Academy. The Tigers felt like they played one of their best defensive games of the season, but tonight, they’re going to need to have an even better showing if they hope to come away with a victory.

With Elmore County winless on the season and Dadeville sitting at a disappointing 1-4, Friday night was destined to be a scene of agony and ecstasy at Tiger Stadium. It was in only the final minute of the Panthers and Tigers’ tilt the two roles were assigned. 

When a team plays in a tough region like Dadeville, it’s nice to get a breather with a non-region week. And the Tigers will take a break from Class 3A Region 3 play with one of the lighter teams on their schedule, but a rivalry contest with Elmore County adds a whole new level of importance.

Whatever momentum Reeltown volleyball had in its match with Dadeville on Tuesday was lost when the Rebels gave up a 9-6 start for a 25-20 loss in the fourth set. 

Heads started to turn when Dadeville absolutely dominated Horseshoe Bend to start the season. They turned even more when the Tigers played right there with Class 2A No. 6 Reeltown in Week 1, despite an eventual one-touchdown loss.

Over the last two weeks, Friday nights filled with fantastic football games were overshadowed by some strong disagreement of calls. A week after Dadeville thought it made a game-winning field goal at the last second, Wetumpka did not get the benefit of a flag thrown when a deep ball fell inc…

Benjamin Russell’s cross country team hit the trails this weekend at the Spain Park Cross Country Classic, and Reginald Sweetwyne made a name for himself.

The Dadeville Tigers struggled to stop the run against the Bullock County Hornets in a Class 3A Region 3 football action. A one-play 82-yard touchdown run in the second quarter by the Hornets broke the game open for them in the second quarter and they didn’t look back in a 28-12 victory. 


It's a special episode of ITL this week as Caleb and Lizi are joined by The Daily Home's LaVonte Young to discuss the big games in Class 4A Region 4 this week (20:30).


Caleb and Lizi are back with a quick recap on the biggest moments of Week 1 (5:20) before moving on to this week's Game of the Week between Stanhope Elmore and Benjamin Russell (16:10).

Before the season even started, there were three major season-ending injuries for local teams. Benjamin Russell linebacker Lane Rigby broke his leg and Dadeville’s Josh Taylor and Horseshoe Bend’s Kendall Penwell tore their ACLs.


Last year, Dadeville and Reeltown might as well have not played. The Rebels put up 14 points on Tiger miscues before the Tigers even touched the ball, and from there, it was like Dadeville was already ready to pack it in.


When you’re playing a team that’s not nearly as good as you are and you get off to a dominating start, it can be easy to get complacent. And although Benjamin Russell let Dadeville make some noise in the second set of Tuesday’s volleyball match, it quickly got back and completed the sweep.

Nearing the end of the season in 2018, Dadeville got a new varsity volleyball coach as Jenni Roy stepped up from the JV squad. Now, Roy has a full offseason under her belt with her team and she’s excited to see how the Tigers put it all together.


Heading into the season opener tonight, Horseshoe Bend and Dadeville both have a lot of similarities. They are both hoping for more success than they found a year ago; they both have a lot of unanswered questions remaining; and they both had a key injury during their intrasquad scrimmages la…


Actual football games have finally arrived this week so Caleb Turrentine and Lizi Arbogast are here to preview some of the top games in the area (3:15) while making their predictions for Week 0.
