HOW THE POWER 10 FARED

No. 1 Greenville Christian was off

The Saints didn’t play Friday night. Their next game is at home next week against Delta Streets.

No. 2 Oak Grove beat Terry 54-28

The Warriors (6-1) rolled over the Bulldogs to move to 4-0 in Region 3 and set up a huge showdown with Brandon (5-2, 4-0 in Region 3) for next week at Bulldog Stadium in Brandon.

No. 3 Ocean Springs beat Pascagoula 42-3

The Greyhounds rolled to a 36-2 halftime lead and pitched a shutout in the second half to move to 7-0. Ocean Springs and Gulfport are both 4-0 in Region 4 games, and appear to be on a collision course for a winner-take-all game on Oct. 29 at Gulfport.

No. 4 Starkville beat Murrah 50-0

The Yellow Jackets are 7-0 after thrashing the Mustangs in Jackson, and coupled with Oxford’s loss to Clinton Friday night, Starkville is now alone in first place in Region 2 and have an inside track to the top seed in the 6A North Playoffs.

No. 5 Madison Central beat Tupelo 35-3

Vic Sutton passed for a career-high 241 yards and three touchdowns as the Jaguars blew past Tupelo at home. MC has now won three games in a row and will be heavily favored the next two weeks against Germantown and Murrah.

No. 6 West Point beat Lake Cormorant 40-21

The Green Wave got off to a relatively slow start and led just 20-14 at the half, but pulled away in the second half en route to their fifth win of the season. They are also 4-0 in Region 1 games, and have all but locked up the top seed coming out of the region.

No. 7 Oxford lost to Clinton 23-6

The Chargers managed just 172 yards of offense and gave up 203 rushing yards to Clinton tailback Jakobe Calvin. But there’s no rest for the weary in Region 2 — the Chargers head east to face No. 4 Starkville next week.

No. 8 South Panola beat Lewisburg 42-3

The Tigers got an early start and dispatched Lewisburg Thursday night. It was the biggest blowout of the season for South Panola, which led 35-3 at the half on the road.

No. 9 West Jones beat Florence 8-0

The Mustangs moved to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in Region 3-5A, keeping pace with Wayne County in the process.

No. 10 Harrison Central lost to Gulfport 13-12

Daxx Dodson hit a 26-yard field goal with 43 seconds left to lift the Admirals past the Red Rebels, handing Harrison Central its first loss of the season in the process.
