A 31-point outburst that stretched from the midway point of the second half to the midway point of the fourth quarter propelled the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 38-13 win over Holmes Thursday night.
The win kept the Rangers undefeated on the season (8-0) but it also earned them at least a share of the MACJC North Division title. NWCC, which is 5-0 in the North Division, will finish up the season at home Thursday against Itwabama and a win over the Indians would give them the title outright. (October 22, 2010, Page 7A)
Another strong defensive effort proved to be the difference in a win for the No. 7 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers on Thursday night at Bobby Franklin Field.
NWCC defeated Southwest 24-7 thanks in large part to a Ranger defense that held the Bears to under 200 total yards and out of the end zone until the game had been decided. It was the third straight game the Rangers (6-0 overall) held an opponent to a touchdown or less and under 200 yards. (October 8, 2010, Page 6A)
A stranglehold on the MACJC North Division standings is what the No. 9 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers secured Thursday night with a 26-6 win over Northeast.
The Rangers (5-0 overall, 3-0 in the North) battered the Tigers (3-2, 2-1) from start to finish by forcing six turnovers and holding them to just 117 total yards. NWCC, which has now won five straight in the series, is now plus 10 in the turnover column and only allowed 32 points in three games to North Division teams. (October 1, 2010, Page 6A)
The Rangers mauled their way to a 27-17 win over No. 13 Pearl River by clamping down on the Wildcats when the going got tough and utilizing a team-first concept that coach Ricky Woods has tried to instill into his players all offseason. (September 3, 2010, Page 8A)
