|Block loses heartbreaker|
Block High scored three touchdowns on its first four plays, but fell to Jena 27-26 in Jena Friday.
The Bears appeared to take the lead after coming within a point late in the contest, but officials signaled the two-point conversion was no-good after the one official signaled it was good.
"We thought he got in, but we should never have put ourselves in that position," said Block coach Benny Vault.
Block scored on its first offensive play as LaShawn Davis raced 60 yards to paydirt.
On its second offensive play, John Bloodsaw ran 45 yards for the score.
On Block's third possession, LaDarrrius Collins completed a 44-yard TD pass play to Chris Collins.
Davis and Collins teamed up on a 60-yard pass play to set up the final play.
"We came out and looked better," Vault said. "We had 180 yards passing, but we couldn't get any consistency going on defense because of injuries."
Block hosts Buckeye Friday for Homecoming.
"We haven't beaten Buckeye in a while," Vault said.
Central Academy of Macon scored its second win over Tensas Academy this season, defeating the Chiefs 44-28.
Tensas had a 16-0 lead as Sam Russell scored on a 59-yard run and Patrick Kelly added a one-yard TD run with Jon-Truman James running in both conversions.
Tensas led 28-20 at halftime as Kellen Lee scored on a 5-yard run and James completed a 31-yard TD pass to Austin Emfinger.
Central outscored Tensas 24-0 in the second half.
"That's kind of the way it was when we played them the first time over there," said Tensas head coach Joe Coats, who was more of a spectator because of back surgery. "We won the first quarter, they won the fourth quarter and everything else was pretty even."
Tensas was without running back Jim Lentz with a pulled hamstring.
Patrick Kelly is out with a knee injury.
Lentz may play Friday in a home game against Union Christian of Farmerville, Coats said.
"I don't know much about them," he said. "We just have to keep plugging along and playing hard."
Adams County Christian School fell to 0-5 with a 47-6 loss to Silliman Friday in Natchez.
The Saints had eight turnovers in the contest, including five fumbles.
Trinity Episcopal score two touchdowns in the first and third quarters, remaining unbeaten with a 42-14 win over Prairie View.
The Saints scored on their first possesion as R.J. Fleming passed 10 yards to Kent King. Wells Middleton added to the lead with a 6-yard run. Chas Moroney added the kick on both scores. Fleming added an 8-yard TD run in the second quarter.
Brandon Daggs caught TD passes in the third quarter, one a 49-pass play from Fleming and the other covering 12 yards from Givonni Dent.
The final Trinity score came on a 1-yard run by King.
