Elba kicked off to Vincent with Rodney Groce taking the ball at his 28 and returning it 72 yards for a touchdown. Fans were still marveling at the back-to-back returns when Elba's Michael Lindsey fielded the next Vincent kickoff at the 13-yard line and rambled 87 yards for a touchdown to complete the feat.
Elba (12-0) went on to win 59-20 and advanced to this week's quarterfinals to face Flomaton. Vincent ended its season at 9-3.
Elba's Shannon James also caused two fumbles, returning one 74 yards for a touchdown in the win, and Martin Henderson had 18 tackles.
