A three and out by Leake and punt gave Simpson the ball at the Leake 47 yard line. Munn quickly went off left tackle for 12 yards and then quarterback Sam Cowart hit Cade Eiland for a 34 yard strike to set the Cougars up at the Leake 1 yard line. Kyle Munn then put the Cougars up 13-0 on a 1 yard burst up the middle with 4:30 left in the first quarter. Justin Griffin's PAT put the Cougar on top 14-0.
Leake then mounted a drive that started on their own 30 yard line and ten plays later found themselves on the Simpson 14 when the first quarter ended. A Grant Wilson keeper for five yards to open the second quarter set up a critical 3rd and 1 at the Cougar 5 yard line, but a Leake fumble was recovered by Simpson’s Will Ashley at the 7 yard line with 11:19 left in the half. On Simpson’s first play after the turnover Kyle Munn hit straight up the middle for 93 yards and a touchdown that seemed to take the air out of the Rebels. Justin Griffin added the PAT to give Simpson a 21-0 lead with 11:04 left in the quarter.
Simpson added to the lead at the 4:41 mark of the quarter as Munn scored his third touchdown of the half on a 37 yard run followed by a Justin Griffin PAT to give the Cougars a 28-0 halftime lead. (Right) Simpson's Cade Eiland drags the foot after a 34 yard reception at the 1 yard line.
Simpson opened up the second half the same as they started the game and drove to the Leake 31, but a Sam Cowart pass was intercepted near the Rebel goal line by Leake’s Caleb Burns who returned it back to the Simpson 48. Leake would get on the board on a 15 yard pass from Grant Wilson to wideout Jake Wall with 5:12 left in the quarter. Dylan Alford added the PAT to trim the lead to 28-7.
Leake finished the night on a Grant Wilson strike to tailback Brad Hunter. Dylan Alford’s PAT settled the scoring at 41-14.
Simpson’s Jacob Busby rushed for 65 yards on 9 carries and Cade Eiland had 39 yards on 7 carries and a touchdown. Quarterback Sam Cowart was 2/5 for 46 yards on the night.
Simpson improved to 6-1 and sits atop district 3AA with a 2-0 mark. “Our offensive line played great tonight” said Simpson head coach Billy Hankins. “This is the first time this season we’ve put together a complete game offensively”. When asked about Kyle Munn’s performance Hankins said “Kyle is still not 100% healthy but he’s getting there. He had a solid game and had nearly 200 yards rushing in the first half”. Simpson is part of what most consider the toughest AA district in the MAIS. The Cougars have two district games remaining with a trip to Canton in two weeks, and if the Cougars prevail in that one it sets up a huge battle with #1 ranked Lamar visiting Mendenhall in week ten. “Lamar is a great team and we’re excited about the challenge” said Hankins.
Leake will look to regroup next week when they host a “hot” Copiah Colonel squad that’s coming off an impressive 27-10 win over Presbyterian. The Leake Rebels slipped to 5-1 and 2-1 in district play.
Simpson has leaped three spots to #5 in the latest Southern Sports & Travel Top Ten poll while Leake falls to #10.

LIBERTY, Miss. — Prairie View erupted for four runs in the bottom of the fourth and Kayla Tyson flung a one-hitter as the Lady Spartans blanked Bowling Green 7-0 in the South State finals on Saturday night.
Prairie View (22-3) advanced to the championship game by edging Silliman 2-1 and trimming Bowling Green 3-1 earlier in the day.
Prairie View and Bowling Green both qualified for the MAIS Class 2A State Tournament, which is set for Saturday in Ridgeland, Miss. Pairings will be announced later this week.
In the championship game, the Lady Spartans took charge from the outset.
Caroline Oliphant started off the bottom of the first with a triple and scored on Mallory Hall’s base hit.
After Hall stole second and moved to third on Tyson’s fly out to right field, Kara Burchfield swatted an RBI triple to deep center field. Next up, Lena Kate Thompson tripled down the right field line. Molly Gregory’s RBI groundout to second base brought the score to 4-0.
Prairie View put the game out of reach with three unearned runs in the third.
Tyson and Burchfield walked and Thompson, Victoria Billings and Leslie Spires were all safe on errors.
Pitching her third game of the day, Tyson (16-1) allowed her defense to do most of the work. The junior right-hander struck out only one, but did not issue a walk and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning.
Caroline Oliphant led the Lady Spartans’ seven-hit attack with a triple and a single. Burchfield and Thompson supplied three-baggers and Hall, Gregory and Spires singled.
Prairie View 3, Bowling Green 1
Kara Burchfield slugged a three-run double to back the three-hit pitching of Kayla Tyson as the Lady Spartans advanced to the championship game.
Prairie View loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the third. Leslie Spires singled, Kristen Oliphant reached via error and Mallory Hall beat out a bunt single. With two away, Burchfield delivered the clutch hit to put the Lady Spartans in front 3-0.
Bowling Green broke up the shutout in the sixth, but could get no closer.
Tyson struck out eight and walked three for the win.
Burchfield finished the contest 3-for-3 and Hall, Lena Kate Thompson and Spires singled.
Prairie View 2, Silliman 1
Molly Gregory’s two-out, two-run tripled propelled the Lady Spartans to a Saturday morning victory over Silliman.
Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Kayla Tyson led off with a base hit and Lena Kate Thompson drew a two-out walk. Gregory chased both runners across with a triple.
Silliman threatened in the sixth.
With one out and runners at second and third, Prairie View third baseman Caroline Oliphant fielded a bunt. Rather than throwing to first base and allowing the potential tying run to score, she wisely held the ball. Kayla Tyson escaped the jam with a fly ball to shallow left field and an inning-ending punchout.
Tyson k’d eight and walked three in the two-hit victory.
Gregory tripled and Tyson and Victoria Billings singled for Prairie View.

Columbia has good showing at USM Cross Country Meet
Despite being probably the smallest school entered in the Golden Eagle Cross Country Classic, the Columbia Academy Boys Cross Country team showed they could run with the big boys.

Canton wasted little time getting on top as senior tailback Mackey Simpson put the Panthers up 7-0 on a 3 yard run. Leake’s first possession resulted in a punt that pinned Canton inside their own 1 yard line and with the Panthers facing a 3rd and 10 from the 1, Mackey Simpson broke through with a 99 yard run increasing the lead to 14-0 in the 1st quarter. With the possibility of finding themselves in a hole too deep to recover from Leake answered on a Grant Wilson 5 yard run to close the gap to 14-7. The game had turned as the 2nd quarter ensued and the only score before the half came on a 34 yard field goal from Leake’s Dylan Alford as Canton took a 14-10 lead into halftime.
Leake quarterback Grant Wilson put the Rebels on top for the first time as the junior ran in from 11 yards out in the 3rd quarter. A Dylan Alford PAT put Leake up 17-14.
With Canton facing a 17-14 deficit entering the final quarter the Panthers made a costly mistake as they fumbled near their goal line and Leake defensive end Joshua Crane recovered the ball in the end zone. Alford’s PAT put the Rebels up 24-14, but Canton refused to quit as they scored on a Kyle Warren 22 yard run with five minutes left. Leake’s Hank Coleman blocked the PAT attempt leaving the score at 24-20. Leake burned the remaining time off the clock and earned a hard fought 24-20 win.
Caleb Burns ran for 135 yards on 23 carries for Leake and quarterback Grant Wilson had 74 yards on 6 carries and two touchdowns, along with 46 passing yards. Kannon King led the Rebel defense. The junior linebacker had 9 tackles and another junior linebacker, Ethan Bobo, had 8 stops.
Mackey Simpson led Canton with 165 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns.
Next up for Leake (5-0 & 2-0) will be a road trip to face the Simpson Cougars in another important district battle. The Rebels are currently ranked #4 in the new Southern Sports & Travel Top 10 poll.
Canton falls to 2-4 & 0-2 and will travel to Tri-County.
Columbia jumped out to an early 6-0 lead in the first quarter but couldn’t hold on as Oak Forest beat the Cougars 21-6 in Amite. Columbia got on the board at the 9:48 mark of the 1st quarter on a 3 yard plunge by sophomore tailback Josh Broom. Oak Forest scored twice in the second quarter. Junior Drew Misita returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown with 5:13 left in the half. Landon Curry added the PAT to give the Jackets a 7-6 lead. Two and a half minutes later Misita would find the end zone again. This time he was on the receiving end of a 67 yard pass from quarterback James Peterson that extended the lead to 14-6 after a successful Curry PAT.
Oak Forest sealed the deal with 11:22 left in the final quarter when Denton Hanson scampered 70 yards for a touchdown.
Denton Hanson rushed for 171 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown and James Peterson completed 6 of 15 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown.
Columbia’s Josh Broome ran for 100 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown and wide-out Nick Sanders caught two passes for 52 yards.
Oak Forest racked up 316 total yards on the night to Columbia’s 145.
Oak Forest improved to 3-3 and will host Parklane next week while Columbia slips to 2-4 and will travel to Liberty to take on district 4AA foe ACS.
R.J. Fleming accounted for 4 TD's in a mostly hard fought struggle against Class 2A opponent, Central Private from Baker, LA. Fleming scored on 2 passes from Givonni Dent, 16 yds & 47 yds, ran one in for 23 yds, and returned an interception for 82 yds late in the 4th quarter. Brandon Daggs scored on a 50 yd pass from Dent, and Givonni Dent on defense returned an interception 40 yds for a score with 1:23 remaining in the game. Central Private suffered a 3rd interception earlier in the game by Brandon Daggs. Senior Matthew Rymer had a great game on defense, but much of the defense was a team effort. Both teams were in position to have scored more points, but were hampered by penalties. CP fumbled several times late in the game, and although they didn't lose any fumbles, they lost yards and offensive opportunities. In six games, TE has outscored their opponents 231 to 61.

>District 2AA – 5-13
>District 3AA – 17-7
>District 4AA – 14-11
>District 5AA – 17-8
>District 6AA – 7-13
**Friday night’s game between Brookhaven and Simpson has a few interesting twists. In the newest Southern Sports & Travel rankings Brookhaven is #3 and Simpson is #6. Brookhaven is tied with Lamar with the highest point average per game in AA at 44.2 while Simpson leads all AA teams in points yielded at 4.8 a game. Brookhaven won at Simpson last season 20-14 and in 2007 won 20-17 at Brookhaven.

**Lamar senior quarterback Witt Haggard has a total of 29 touchdowns at the midway point of the Raider’s schedule.
**Silliman’s Florian Doeinck will not be playing basketball for the Wildcats this season. The German exchange student lost his father a few months back and returned to Germany to be with his mother and family. I met Florian at the District 5AA basketball tournament in Centreville last season and saw him play a handful of times during the season. Florian was named to the Southern Sports & Travel AA All South team as a junior. Our prayers and thoughts go out to this exceptional young man.
**Bowling Green and Oak Forest will meet on December 23rd at the New Orleans Arena before a Hornets game. As an avid basketball junkie this will be my Christmas gift.
**Thanks for all the text updates on Friday nights. I received just over 115 this past Friday night and I’m trying to set things up so those updates can be posted directly on the main page as they come in.
**I’ll be covering the Simpson at Brookhaven game this Friday night.
See ya somewhere…………….

If you like an underdog story you need to look no further than Natchez, Mississippi. The Adams County Christian School Rebels have taken on an underdog label this season. Even as they sit at 4-1 on the season you only need to look back a few years to see just where this modern day Rocky was to appreciate where they are now at the midway point of the 2009 MAIS football season.
Paul Hayles took over as head football coach at ACCS in 2007, just one season after the Rebels posted a 6-6 record and a playoff appearance. He also took over a team that was senior laden the previous year which meant the building process was going to be a long and arduous one. The 2007 season for Rebel fans and supporters was one that seemed to have no end as Adams went winless in an eleven game schedule. Not only did they post a season mark of 0-11 they also only managed 3 points a game while giving up 32 to opponents. They were shutout six times and never scored more than 8 points in a game. Holding a team together after being outscored 350-33 on the season is done only by those with the discipline to remain focused.
The following season there were signs of gradual improvement. While the Rebels still struggled defensively they increased their scoring output to 14 points a game and suffered no shutouts but after eight weeks they had yet to win a game. Then in week nine Adams edged Prairie View 20-16 in Batsrop to win their first game since November 3, 2006. To most teams a 1-10 finish deserves little recognition but this win was a huge stepping stone in the rebuilding process.
The speculation as to which teams would contend in their respective districts in 2009 included little, if any, chatter involving Adams Christian. I’ll insert myself into that group. “We believed that we could have a good year. Our talent had matured, and this team had shown leadership that had not been present in the previous two years,” Hayles said. Had it not been for sloppy care of the football during a week two encounter with Hillcrest the Rebels would be sitting at 5-0, but as they prepare to face the toughest stretch of their schedule the thoughts of not only a winning season but a playoff appearance most certainly have to enter the heads of fans and supporters. I asked Coach Hayles what areas the team must focus on during the next six weeks? “Discipline and ball handling. With discipline we will not lose focus on maintaining and improving our strengths. Ball handling has been our greatest obstacle (fumbles),” said Hayles. And when it comes to whom the underclassmen look to for leadership? “My seniors, each one, serve as an example in some form or another."
So as the 2009 MAIS football season quickly marches on, the “Rocky” of AA football prepares for another round with a roster consisting of 10 seniors, 11 juniors and 5 sophomores. Those 10 seniors that endured the 2007 and 2008 seasons deserve much praise but the thing that I was most curious about was how do you motivate a group of kids after two very difficult football campaigns? “What does not kill us makes us stronger and these guys have always given what they have, and that is all you can ask for,” said Hayles.
Round six begins Friday night as the Rebels travel to McComb to take on AAA Parklane.

Central Private capitalized on a turnover on Silliman’s first possession. With the Wildcats facing a 3rd and 7 from their own 11 yard line senior defensive back Kerry Burns picked off a Trent Hornsby pass and returned it back to the Wildcat 11 yard line. One play later the Rebels were on the board as senior tailback Bobby Muse busted through the middle for 11 yards with 6:19 remaining in the first quarter to put Central Private up 7-0.
(Above) Central Private tailback Bobby Muse rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns.
Silliman looked ready to answer on their ensuing possession as tailback Landon Taylor went off left tackle for 44 yards all the way down to the Central Private 37 yard line. The drive stalled after the Rebel defense held Silliman to negative yards on three rushing attempts forcing Silliman to punt back at midfield.
Following a Central Private punt to end the opening quarter Silliman put together a threat after Nick Olinger hit the hole for 9 yards and Jake Parsons broke one for 16 yards as the Wildcats quickly found themselves at the Rebel 32 yard line. The Central Private defense would bend not break once again as they held Silliman on a 4th a 2 from the Rebel 24 yard line. Central Private’s defense held Silliman again on a 4th and 9 from the Central Private 43 with just over one minute remaining and took up shop with intentions of finishing the half with a score. That drive was halted by Silliman as Nick Olinger intercepted a Jason Young pass at the Wildcat 10 yard line to end the half with Central Private up 7-0.
(Above) Central Private QB Jason Young directed the Rebel offense
On Silliman’s opening possession of the second half they wasted little time moving the ball as Trent Hornsby hit Jake Parsons for a 39 yard pass giving the Wildcats a 1st down at the Rebel 23 yard line. After a loss of eight yards and a 5 yard motion penalty pushed the Wildcats back to the 37 yard line, Cody Donze got back 10 yards on a screen pass from Hornsby to the 27. Facing a 4th and 14 from the Central Private 27 yard line the Wildcats rolled the dice once again but a Hornsby pass was intercepted by senior defensive back Steven O’Bryant in the end-zone.
Central Private regained possession at their own 20 yard line and managed to move out to their 40 but stalled. After a Brandt Moore 40 yard punt pinned the Wildcats back on their 20 yard line Silliman went back to work again and quickly moved to the Central Private 44 yard line where the Rebel defense stiffened once again forcing Silliman to punt with two minutes left in the 3rd quarter. The Rebels took over at their own 20 but after two yards in three plays they called on Brandt Moore to punt once again to end the 3rd quarter with a 7-0 advantage.
(Above) Rebel linebacker Travis Richard (#44) with a late game sack on Trent Hornsby
In a hard hitting physical game there was still that feeling that something was about to break loose and it did on Silliman’s opening possession of the final quarter. After a Rebel punt, Silliman had good field position at the Central Private 49 yard line when Nick Olinger broke through the middle for a 7 yard gain that was extended by a horse-collar infraction by Central Private. The result gave the Wildcats the ball at the Rebel 27 yard line with just over 10 minutes left in the game. A five yard delay of game penalty pushed the ball back to the 32 and two plays later with Silliman facing a 2nd and 13, with a solid threat to tie the game, Central Private senior Seth Smith made the biggest play of the night as the linebacker intercepted a Trent Hornsby pass in the flat and returned it all the way down to the Wildcat 9 yard line.
(Above) Central Private tailback Bobby Muse stopped by Wildcat Jake Parsons (#32)
Central Private capitalized on a Bobby Muse one yard plunge three plays later as the Rebels took a 13-0 lead with 8:30 left in the game.
Silliman, after the kickoff, showed little quit as they promptly moved the ball to the Central Private 38 yard line but the trend that hampered them all night made no exception on their last possession of the game. With Silliman looking at a 2nd and 10 the game was all but sealed as Central Private linebacker Travis Richard nailed quarterback Trent Hornsby from his blindside for a loss of 10 yards knocking the junior signal caller from the game. Central Private regained possession and burned 4 minutes off the clock before punting back to the Wildcats. Three plays later Central Private recovered a Wildcat fumble at the Silliman 22 yard line with 1:27 left.
Silliman quarterback Taylor Hornsby went 7/13 for 115 yards and Landon Taylor ran for 54 yards on 12 carries.
Silliman had 231 total yards to Central Private’s 176.
Next up for Central Private (5-0 & 1-0) is a road trip to Natchez to face the #1 team in single A football, the Trinity Saints. Silliman (1-4 & 0-2) has an idle week.

The #1 ranked Lamar Raiders will roll into Canton this Friday night to open up district 3AA play against the Canton Panthers. To use the term roll is quite appropriate after what the Raiders have done the first four weeks of the season. Lamar has averaged 42 points a game en-route to wins over three AAA squads (East Rankin, Starkville and Heritage) and Central Hinds.
The #3 ranked Brookhaven Cougars will also hit the road as they make the trip to Raymond to battle district 4AA foe Central Hinds. The Cougars won their opening district game last week with a 65-0 shutout of ACS in Brookhaven and have lopsided wins over Silliman, Riverfield and AAA Copiah. Brookhaven, like their counterpart in the north, has an explosive offense averaging 46 points a contest.
The fuel that feeds the engines of Lamar and Brookhaven have similarities also. Make no mistake about it, that fuel flows from the quarterback positions. Two of the best at their respective positions will be so close to each other on Friday night that the thought of redirecting their buses to a neutral field to put on a show is alluring.
Lamar quarterback Witt Haggard is already on pace to eclipse the 3,500 yards of passing and 30 touchdowns he racked up in 2008. The senior is averaging 306 yards and 4 touchdowns a game thus far and add on the one rushing touchdown he earns each game and he is on pace to score 50 touchdowns in the regular season alone.
Brookhaven quarterback Chandler Rogers began drawing attention his sophomore season as he led the Cougars to a district
Both Haggard and Rogers had an incredible 7 touchdowns each this past Friday night. Both had 6 by air and one on the ground. After four weeks Haggard leads AA football with 21 touchdowns while Rogers is a close second with 18. Both are the lynchpins to the success of their teams and, as their fans know, are well worth the price of a ticket.

The Centreville Tigers improved to 3-1 & 1-0 in district 5AA with a 21-0 shutout over Silliman in Centreville. Senior running back Zach Sinclair ran for 76 yards on 21 carries and had two touchdowns and sophomore quarterback Cliff Hurst ran for another in a sloppy district opener. Silliman managed to out-gain the Tigers on the ground with 153 yards to Centreville’s 152 yards. Centreville lost two fumbles on a night that produced only 39 passing yards between both teams.
