WVHS cruises past Dragons in season finale

WATER VALLEY – Water Valley did exactly what it should’ve done Thursday night. Quarterback Jonathan Kent accounted for three touchdowns, the defense produced some points of its own, and the Blue Devils continued their surge toward the postseason with a 44-8 rout of Marks Palmer on Senior Night at Bobby Clark Field.n The win gave the Blue Devils (7-4, 4-1 Region 2-3A) their fourth straight entering next week’s MHSAA Class 3A playoffs after a 3-4 start. It also capped a winless season for Marks Palmer (0-9, 0-5), which lost by at least 20 points for the seventh time in nine games. (October 31, 2014, Page 6A)

    Chargers, Commodores have plenty to play for

    Will it be a trick or a teat for the Oxford and Lafayette football teams tonight? The two area prep teams are preparing for their respective showdowns on All Hallow’s Eve. For the Chargers, they hope there is a treat in their bag by night’s when they host Center Hill with the chance to claim the Region 1-Class 5A title for the second consecutive season. The Commodores will be on the road looking out for any tricks from a winless Byhalia team that has plans of spoiling Lafayette’s chance for a perfect record in region play. (October 31, 2014, Page 6A)

                  Tunsil practicing, Still will try for Ole Miss

                  During fall camp and through the course of the regular season, the lack of depth on Ole Miss’ offensive line has been a concern and was the one group that had to stay healthy. Not only did the Rebels suffer two injuries last week, they occurred to starting center Ben Still and arguably their best player at the position, left tackle Laremy Tunsil. Still missed the game against LSU, but Tunsil injured his bicep during and was missed badly. (October 30, 2014, Page 7A)
