    Moore ends NWCC’s playoffs early

    One of the most successful seasons for the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers and head coach Ricky Woods came to an unfortunate end Saturday in the first round of the MACJC state football playoffs.

    No. 12 Gulf Coast, led by the passing of former Ole Miss walk-on quarterback Clayton Moore, defeated the No. 4 Rangers 52-24 in front of a crowd of 1,452 fans at Bobby Franklin Field. The Bulldogs (8-2 overall), who will now square off against Copiah-Lincoln for the MACJC state title next week, scored early and often against the Rangers (9-1), who entered the game with just four defensive linemen to try and stop one of the best offenses in all of  the junior college ranks. (November 8, 2010, Page 5B)

              WVHS, LHS rollto Round 1 wins

              WATER VALLEY — The Blue Devil defense out-shined the Corinth Warriors in Friday night’s Class 3A first round matchup win, earning a 28-0 win.

              The Wrecking Crew bundled up opposing ball carriers throughout the evening and held the Warriors to under 150 yards of total offense on the night.

              Whenever the Warrior (4-7) offense seemed to start to drive the football the Blue Devil (10-2) defense would make a big play causing them to have to punt.

              Along with the stingy defense, the Blue Devil offense relied heavily on establishing a run game for continual positive yardage and to set up the play action pass.

              The Blue Devil offense ran the ball with a slew of different players. Three Blue Devil players carried the ball over 10 times rushing for over 70 yards a piece.

              The Blue Devils look to survive and advance throughout the playoffs. They will have to travel to Ruleville and will need to win to keep their State Championship dreams alive. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m on Friday.

              LAFAYETTE 49, NORTH PONTOTOC 7

              The top-ranked Lafayette Commodores got their playoffs started right on Friday, cruising to a 49-7 victory over the North Pontotoc Vikings at William L. Buford Stadium.

              After posting a scoreless first quarter in which the Vikings were able to control the clock with short passes and draw plays, the Commodores bounced back in a big way by reeling off 49 unanswered scores. The Vikings lone score came with under a minute left in the contest when the Commodores had already pulled the bulk of their starters.

              Lafayette will host the Louisville Wildcats on Friday. Louisville, led by coach M.C. Miller, defeated Amanda Elzy 32-8 in their round 1 matchup.
