North Sunflower scored 22 points in the third quarter to regain the lead. Stewart then capped the scoring for both teams with a 10-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and a subsequent two-point play.
Nate McManus finished the game 4-for-11 for 91 yards through the air and 68 yards rushing on just five carries.

Oxford traveled to New Hope’s Trojan Field with the hopes of getting retribution for last year’s sloppy showdown while also opening its region schedule with a win.
Instead, the Chargers solemnly loaded their yellow school buses following the defeat and couldn’t help but feel like they gave the Region 1-5A game away. (September 27, 2010, Page 4B)
A more reserved, business-like approach proved to be the key to earning a win for the Water Valley Blue Devils in their final non region game of the season Friday night. Instead of the swagger and attitude that the team displays at the start of each game each week, the Blue Devils executed at a more subdued, methodical pace in their 33-6 win over Independence. Instead of hitting the gas early in the game, the Blue Devils found themselves hitting the accelerator more as the game wore on.
The main reason for a little less passion resided in the fact that two energetic starters on defense, Eric Buckley and Chris Conard, were held out for injury and illness. For junior linebacker C.J. Jackson, not having the two in the game meant a little bit slower start and feel overall from the team. (September 27, 2010, Page 5B)
