Canton improved their season to 2-3 with a decisive 35-29 win over Ridgeland in Canton last Friday. This was the first district game for both teams.

Ridgeland (0-6) had two interceptions, one from Mylan Wallace for 23 yards and Jordan Anderson for three. Wallace, a sophomore, also recorded five tackles.
  • Pats fall 1 play short in 3-OT loss
     HATTIESBURG – Herbert Davis fervently paced the sidelines here Friday night, imploring his team on several occasions to rise to the challenge. “We’ve got to have someone step up and make a play if we’re going to win this game!” the third-year MRA head coach yelled. “Somebody has got to make a play!”
  • Canton Academy moves to 6-0 with 42-7 win
    Canton Academy defeated district opponent Central Holmes on Friday night 42-7.  

    The Panther offense accumulated over 400 yards in total offense as two TDs were scored on the ground and two via the passing game. 
  • So, LSU fired Les Miles Sunday and elevated Ed Orgeron to the position of interim head football coach in Baton Rouge.

    We can argue the wisdom of the first half of those two moves all day. LSU, a school famously strapped for cash these days, will pay Miles $10 million not to coach. But in my opinion the decision to elevate Orgeron, the former Ole Miss head coach, makes sense. Orgeron's job will be to keep the seat warm and to make sure recruiting stays on course. He can do that. He proved it at Southern Cal.
  • This past Friday, in this year’s Homecoming game, the Saints defeated St. Patrick in a blowout win 24-0.

    On offense the Saints were led by sophomore running back Warner Speed, who ran for 161 yards and a touchdown. He was helped out by senior Michael Ardelean, who scored on a short run early in the game, and sophomore tight end Joseph Garner, who caught a touchdown from quarterback Holland Townes late in fourth quarter.
  • Madison central loses to Clinton
    Madison Central (2-3-1) has not had an easy season, but no one can say it has been uneventful. This season the Jags served Meridian their single loss in an overtime victory to start the season and featured a road victory against struggling powerhouse South Panola and the rare 17-17 tie while hosting West Monroe.
  • Jackson prep bests MRA
    MADISON – Jerrion Ealy garners most of the headlines for top-ranked Jackson Prep.
       Don't sleep on Jacob Crawley, though.
       Crawley, the at-times overlooked "other" half of Prep's potent 1-2 punch, scampered for 187 yards and three touchdowns on Friday night to lead his team to a convincing 34-7 victory over No. 2 MRA before an overflow crowd at Patriot Field.
  • Anthony Hart and the Jaguars are looking to shake off the oddity of last Friday’s 17-17 tie against West Monroe to get ready for possibly the best team they will play all year.

    Jags Head Coach Anthony Hart explained that before non region games, referees ask both coaches if they would like to play overtime to settle a tie. The decision must be unanimous.
  • Canton Academy picks off Greenville Christian 35-0
    Canton Academy set a new school record for interceptions in a game with 7 interceptions on Friday night during its routing of Greenville Christian 35-0. Two of those interceptions went for touchdowns.  

    Three of the interceptions were made by Tink Ragsdale,  two by Keyshawn Clanton with one being returned 38 yards for a TD, one by Joseph McLean, and one by Nathan Earnhart which went 46 yards for a TD. 
  • This past Sunday wasn't that much different than most days here lately for Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, the Fulton native and former Southern Miss baseball standout.

    Playing in New York, Dozier extended his hitting streak to 22 games, made an unassisted double play in the field – and lost. It is the story of this season – and really of Dozier's Major League career.
  • Patriots feast on turnovers
    MADISON – Have you ever been stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, notice all the other lanes are moving so you change lanes only to have the cars in your new lane come to a dead halt? At a standstill, you notice every lane on the highway, including the one you just left, is now moving – except yours.

    Or waited in a checkout line at Walmart, change to another line because it appears to be quicker, only to have the lane you just left turn out to prove a faster checkout?
