Chelsea and Pinckney renewed an old rivalry and it appears that the two will become big SEC White rivals for years to come as Chelsea scored 10 points in the final 2:46 to defeat Pinckney 10-7 Friday, Septemeber 2.
Pinckney returned to the SEC this season after being in the KLAA conference.
The Pirates took a 7-0 lead on its opening drive on a 1 yard touchdown run by Levi Collins. It stayed that way until late in the 4th when Chelsea’s Thomas Steele hit Aiden Chisolm-Blockton for a 33 yard touchdown. The Bulldogs got the ball back and Cullen Lindsay gave them the lead with a 24 yard field goal with a minute left. Pinckney drove into Chelsea territory, but a hail mary pass fell incomplete in the endzone to end the game.
