GRIDIRON GUS picks this week’s winners
‘Ol Gus was more than a little worried when Murrah took a 14-7 lead over the Indians on Friday night. But, once the onslaught of scoring by Hazlehurst began, no one could stop ‘em!
Great job by the Indian defense to bottle-up Mr. Dear for Murrah and create 4 turnovers in the Indians’ 55-35 win.
Chalk Lawrence County up as the second most impressive team from Friday. They hung 42 on them Cobras from Wesson, and could’ve broke 50 if they wanted. The Cobras were out-manned, over-matched, out-gunned and were devastated when the Cougars returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.
The Colonels from Copiah–you boys keep on playin’ hard. The wins will come. Defeating Leake was a tall order, and y’all played well. Keep workin’ hard!
The Tigers from Crystal Springs looked much improved against Prentiss in a last minute loss. Gotta play for 48 minutes, though.
