Teams build off momentum of victory

By

Cedar Creek got in the win column on Friday with 42-8 win over Delta Charter.

The Cougars (1-1) started with big plays on both sides of the ball which built to a 42-0 lead by halftime.

“We were able to start fast,” Cedar Creek coach Ben Haddox said. “Anytime you can get momentum like that it helps.”

Quarterback Huff McIntosh was 4-of-7 for 70 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cougar offense.

Parker King rushed seven times for 54 yards and a touchdown. Tanner Disotell rushed for 33 yards and one touchdown on only four carries.

“Huff was very accurate,” Haddox said. “I think our front seven on defense did a great job applying pressure.”

Riverfield wins shootout

The Riverfield Raiders survived a shootout 62-61 over Trinity Episcopal on Friday. The Raiders were down 21-7 in the first half when offensive fireworks exploded on both sides. The Raiders were led by running back Cole Morris and his 214 yards and five touchdowns on 22 carries.

“We knew we had to pound the ball,” Riverfield coach Boyd Cole said. “(Morris) ran real hard so I just kept feeding him the ball.”

As a team, Riverfield had 345 yards rushing.

Turner Bridges added 85 yards and three touchdowns rushing for Riverfield (3-1).

“Trinity had a lot of speed,” Cole said. “We had a tough time tackling them too.”

River Oaks game canceled

The River Oaks at Central Hinds game was cancelled due to unplayable field conditions.

The game was in a lightening delay when referees deemed the field too wet to play on.

River Oaks coach Robert Hannah said the team was playing up in classification and could have used the power points for the playoff seeds later this year.

“The game just won’t count,” Hannah said. “We will divide by nine games for the power rankings.”

River Oaks (1-2) visits Tri-County Academy in Flora, Mississippi next week.
