The Pine Bluff Zebras ended their season in the quarterfinals of the 6A playoffs after suffering a 34-6 loss to West Memphis on Friday night.
Pine Bluff went ahead of West Memphis early on their opening possession after Elisha Taylor scored a 35-yard touchdown to give the Zebras a 6-0 lead.
Unfortunately, that would be the only score of the game for the Zebras as West Memphis would score on their next three drives.
On the first drive for West Memphis, the Zebras’ defense stopped the Blue Devils inside the redzone on third down, which resulted in a made field goal to get West Memphis on the board 6-3.
After an unsuccessful fourth down by Pine Bluff, quarterback Owens McConnell threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to senior Jatavius Tucker to give the Blue Devils the lead 9-6.
West Memphis intercepted a pass thrown by Shauwn Howell that would later set up a 6-yard touchdown run by Devin Olloway. Olloway later caught a screen pass and took it the distance for a 55-yard touchdown to give the Blue Devils a 21-6 lead at halftime.
After halftime, West Memphis would put the game away with a 72-yard touchdown pass to Olloway once again.
The Zebras end the season with a 5-6-1, and for the first time in the last nine seasons, they will not play in the 6A semi-finals.
