|Ferriday falls at Natchez scrimmage|
Ferriday High may have failed to put any points on the board, but Trojan head coach Freddie Harrison still saw some positives from his team's performance in the River City Classic Friday at Natchez High.
The Trojans fell to Natchez High 19-0 in the final game of the night, with one of those scores coming in the junior varsity scrimmage.
"I saw a whole lot of positives considering we only had about six or seven days of work," Harrison said. "We had some alignment problems, but everything that we messed up on is correctable."
Harrison said he wasn't surprised to see better overall play from his defense.
"Defense is more about reacting," he said. "Ten guys can mess up, but one go can do something to overcome that. When one guy on offense messes up, you can't cover that up."
Natchez marched the ball down the field on its first possession, with William Newman scoring on a 29-yard run around right end.
On Natchez's second possession, the Bulldogs scored on a 54-yard pass from Javon Washington to Melvin Davis.
The final score came on a 5-yard touchdown run by Joey Bruce.
The game ended after a brief skirmish at midfield during Ferriday's second of planned three varsity possessions.
"Tempers flared and that's football," Harrison said. "Football is a physical sport and that kind of stuff happens. I'm just glad it happened before the season so both teams can correct that."
Ferriday hosts a jamboree Saturday with Peabody facing Richwood at 5 p.m. for two quarters, followed by Ferriday against Washington-Marion for two quarters.
"I'm looking for a little more consistency," Harrison said. "We need to sustain some drives. I'm excited about getting the opportunity to look at our kicking game against a live opponent."
In the first game of the night on Friday in Natchez, Cathedral defeated Pointe Coupee Central, 18-12.
"I was pleased even though we got a little tired," said Cathedral coach Craig Beesley.
Cathedral's three scores came on a 20-yard touchdown run by Jeb White, a 14-yard TD run by Preston Edwards, and a 4-yard run by JaDarius Ealey.
Block defeated Wilkinson County 32-12 in the second game.
Chris Collins, VaShawn Davis and Ladarrius Collins each scored touchdowns for the Bears.
"Overall I was pretty pleased," said Block coach Benny Vault. "I wanted to see where we are right now and we have a lot of work still to do. We're working on a spread offense, similar to LSU's 'Pistol' offense, so we're going to continue working on our passing game. We have to get our execution down and get ready for the season."
Block faces Tensas Parish Saturday at 7 p.m. in the first game of the Vidalia Jamboree.
Vidalia High meets Delhi Charter in the finale.
