|Lightning cuts jamboree short|
Not a lot of people saw the most competitive game of the night at the Vidalia Jamboree as thunder and lightning emptied the stands after Block dismantled Tensas Parish 42-6 and Ferriday blanked Madison Parish 14-0.
After a 45-minute delay, Vidalia and Delhi Charter took the field and the Gators defeated the Vikings 12-8.
Ferriday scored on its first possession as Rodney Lawson teamed up with Alfred Brown on a 43-yard pass play to the Madison 27 on the first play of the game.
On fourth down at the Madison 13-yard line, the Jaguars were called for pass inteference and Ferriday received a first down as the Madison 7-yard line.
Two plays later, Bobby Madison went in from five yards out. The conversion failed.
Following a fumble, Ferriday moved to the Jaguar 1-yard line where the Trojans fumbled the ball back to Madison.
The Trojan defense tackled Madison quarterback Joshua Morris in his own end zone for a safety.
A 32-yard pass play from Lawson to Madison moved the ball to the Jaguar 18-yard line where Julius White broke loose on a draw play for the score with 29 seconds remaining. The conversion failed.
The second quarter was not played because of lightning.
"We saw some good and bad things," said Ferriday coach Freddie Harrison. "We had some mistakes, but that was first-game jitters. I was proud of the way the guys went out there and set the tempo. We need to play at a high level at all times. We don't need to play hard for five plays and take one off. We need to play at the same level."
Block scored early and often in its contest against Tensas.
The Bears recovered seven Tensas fumbles and the four interceptions, including one by Jerome Jefferson that was returned for a touchdown.
Keenan Crumpton and Vashawn Davis scored on TD runs, while Jonson teamed up with Andre Calhoun on a 30-yard scoring paly.
Chris Collins also had two touchdowns.
"The main thing I wanted to do was see if we could come out with some intensity and I thought we did that," said Block coach Benny Vault. "We still made too many mistakes, though."
The delay seemed to hinder Vidalia and Delhi Charter's offenses.
Delhi Charter scored first with five minutes remaining as Ricci Ray went tin from eight yards out.
Randy Julian added a 20-yard scoring play.
Vidalia avoided the shutout as Caleb Vines and Quan Riley connected on a 75-yard scoring play with 30 seconds remaining.
"We've got a whole lot to work on," Faircloth said. "We need more conditioning and we needed to work more against other teams. Right now if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all."
