|Ferriday wins defensive struggle|
Rodney Lawson hit Davonta Scott on a 9-yard slant for a touchdown with less than a minute remaining to give Ferriday a hard-earned 6-3 win over Jonesboro-Hodge Friday in Jonesboro in a District 2-2A contest.
"I thought we learned our lesson in the Vidalia game about not taking our opponent serious," said Ferriday coach Freddie Harrison. "We turned the ball over and made too many mistakes. But the bottom line is we are 2-0 in district. We're in the driver's seat, but when you know what happens when you put a teenager behind the wheel. We have to take care of our responsibilities."
Bobby Madison led Ferriday with 124 yards to put him over 800 for the season.
"Our linemen fought to the end," Madison said. "These kind of games are where the hard work during the summer pays off."
Jonesboro-Hodge appeared to take the lead in the second quarter, but a 65-yard touchdown run was called back for holding.
The game remained scoreless until Jonesboro-Hodge junior George Palmer made a 51-yard field goal with three minutes remaining to go in the third quarter.
Palmer hit a late field goal to give J-H an 11-8 win over Lake Providence a week earlier.
"It's been that kind of year," said Jonesboro-Hodge coach Joey Pender. "We could be 7-0 or 1-6. We have been in some dogfights."
The Tigers looked as if they were going to be the top dog until the final minute.
"They made the plays when they needed to make them," Pender said. "That was a tough ballgame. We were outmanned big-time up front.
