Here’s a look at how the football teams in SBLive Mississippi’s Power 10 fared Friday night.
No. 1 Oak Grove defeated Seminary
The reigning 6A Champs knocked off the rust against a woefully undermanned Seminary team Friday night, but looked as solid as they could look in the process.
No. 2 Oxford was idle
The Chargers opened the season with a solid win over Brandon last week, but they couldn’t find an opponent for Week 2. They’ll return to action next Friday night, when they travel to Shreveport to play Ruston (La.)
No. 3 Madison Central defeated Brandon 42-19
We knew Madison Central was pretty salty on defense, but the offense flexed its muscles and went for 336 yards on the ground against an impressive Brandon front seven.
No. 4 West Point was idle
The Green Wave (0-0) will have to wait another week before opening the season. They are scheduled to travel to Noxubee County next Friday night.
No. 5 Ocean Springs defeated Hattiesburg 43-8
So it turns out Ocean Springs (2-0) might be good. Really good. The Greyhounds held Hattiesburg to negative yardage and rode the arm and legs of quarterback Bray Hubbard, who had four more touchdowns.
No. 6 South Panola was idle
The Tigers will have to wait at least one more week before making their 2021 debut. They are scheduled to play at Cordova (Tenn.) next Friday night.
No. 7 Starkville was idle
The Yellowjackets (1-0) were supposed to play at West Point Friday night, but the game was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols. They’ll return to action next week against Olive Branch.
No. 8 Clinton defeated Northwest Rankin 32-7
The Arrows (1-1) took out the frustration from last week’s overtime loss at Ocean Springs on a suddenly 0-2 Northwest Rankin team Friday night.
No. 9 Harrison Central defeated Morton 35-18
The Red Rebels had to wait an extra week to put on the pads, but they got the win at home to move to 1-0.
No. 10 Ridgeland lost to Pearl 50-13
One week after they looked like one of the top teams in 5A North, the Titans took it on the chin against the Pearl Pirates to fall to 1-1.
