Jeff led 25-14 late in the third quarter.

Fields’ interception of Tyler Fridley didn’t eclipse his great performance — three TD passes and an 82-yard scoring run that had put Jeff (0-1) on top.

* Male 48, Floyd Central 7: Tyler Erny was 6 of 6 in extra points and orchestrated a 668-yard offensive performance in his first start as quarterback as the Bulldogs (1-0) throttled the Highlanders (0-1).

Male was also bolstered by junior running back Marque Northington, who rushed for 133 yards and three touchdowns.

* Valley 42, Holy Cross 39: The host Vikings (1-0) built a 42-24 fourth-quarter lead and held off a late charge of 15 fourth-quarter points to hold off the Cougars (0-1).
