Thursday Night Thunder
We've got mississippi high school football on deck.
A couple of 1a matchups to round out the regular season and set the playoff picture.
First up, nanih waiya and okolona.
There are the okolona chieftains the proverbial david going up against the goliaths otherwise known as the nanih waiya warriors.
======= okolona with the ball first, hand off to daevon johnson, nice stiff arm right there by johnson, gains five, the drive stalled out after that.
======= then the warriors went to work, here's jr coleman weaving his way through the okolona offense, gets ridden down inside the chieftain 20 yard line.
====== few plays later, it's coleman again, muscles his way into the end zone to put the warriors up 7 early in the 1st quarter.
====== nanih waiya goes on to win big, 41 to 20, the warriors finish the season undefeated and their opponent in the first round?
Well that just depends on this next game baldwyn and myrtle, bearcat fans pretty happy, they were up 36 to zero at the half.
====== now 43 to zero, jamaury marshall flips it drelin watson he finds the edge, breaks a tackle and ooo look out matt!
I saw my acls flashing before my eyes, but luckily my cat like reflexes saved me..
====== couple of plays later marshall hand off to kendrick easley and oooo i love me a little contact petey..a little remember the titans reference for ya.
====== and speaking of remember the titans the bearcats left no doubt in this one, they clinch the two seed and a home playoff game with the 57 to 8 win over the hawks.
As the two seed, baldwyn will host french camp next friday.
Myrtle, the loss seats them in the 4 seed, which means they have to make the long trip down to louisville to tangle with the warriors.
Just a little appeteaser to get you ready for a full night of friday night fever coming your way tomorrow night.
A lot of big games with major implications.
Can tupelo take down undefeated oxford and win the district?
Can center hill shock the magnolia state and halt west point's drive for five?
A lot of questions and they will be answered.
Oh yes, alyssa, they will be
