|Vidalia travels to Marskville|
Vidalia High travels to Marksville Friday to take on a Tiger team that Viking head coach Dee Faircloth said has the best talent in the district.
"This is a big one for us," Faircloth said. "They've got a lot of weapons and they are tough to beat down there. We have to come out ready to play for the opening whistle."
Vidalia kicked off district Friday with a 26-12 win over Bunkie.
Marksville defeated Avoyelles 44-14 Friday as freshman Jake Dunbar ran and passed for a combined 324 yards and four touchdowns.
Dunbar is the son of Marksville coach J.T. Dunbar.
"He's as good as their quarterback last year (Alex Brouillette)," Faircloth said. "He puts the ball on the money and he is quick."
Marksville defeated Vidalia 32-0 last year.
"They've got a lot of weapons," Faircloth said. "They've got more weapons than Bunkie."
Marksville picked up its first win of the season last week after missing its first two games because of hurricanes.
The Tigers' losses have come to Jonesboro-Hodge (5-1), Caldwell (5-1) and Alexandria Senior High (4-1).
"We needed that," J.T. Dunbar said. "From an execution standpoint that was our best performance on both sides of the ball."
In leading Marksville, the younger Dunbar rushed for 108 yards on 10 carries with a touchdown and completed 13 of 22 passes for 216 yards and three more TDs.
His combined 324 yards accounted for more than half of his team's 576 total yards while the Tiger defense proved just as capable as they limited Avoyelles to just 93 total yards.
"Jake is still learning, although he played well and gave an overall good performance at this stage of his career," J.T. Dunbar said.
Dunbar was impressed with Vidalia's win over Bunkie.
"Their running back seems to be a load and their offensive line blocked extremely well," he said. "They punched Bunkie right in the mouth and we certainly have some concerns in trying to stop them. Defensively, they really got after Bunkie and with the exception of two short spurts, they really didn't let Bunkie do very much. We run a similar type offense as Bunkie, so it's going to be a real challenge getting ready for them."
