|Ferriday outscores Vidalia|
In a tale of two quarters, Ferriday High defeated Vidalia High 27-13 in the final game of the Vidalia Jamboree Saturday night at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium.
Ferriday led 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.
Each game in the jamboree lasted two quarters.
"I got too satisfied," said Ferriday head coach Chad Harkins. "I was just willing to run the ball and run the clock. But we're still not in game shape. We played well in the first quarter, but we have to be able to go four quarters."
Ferriday's defense held Vidalia to minus -34 yards offense in the first quarter.
The Trojans went 55 yards on their first possession as ZuRaine Thompson and DaVonte Scott accounted for all the yardage, with Thompson scoring on a 1-yard sneak with 7:06 remaining.
On Ferriday's second possession, Thompson passed 43 yards to the end zone where Alfred Brown outjumped two defenders in the end zone for the score. Scott ran in the conversion for a 14-0 Trojan lead with 5:46 remaining.
Following a 34-yard pass from Thompson to Scott, Marques Lewis scored on a 2-yard run with 2:02 remaining to give the Trojans a 20-0 lead at the break.
Vidalia scored first in the second quarter after Walter Jones recovered a fumble on the Ferriday 32-yard line.
Caleb Vines found Tri McCoy on two straight passes, the second one taking the ball to the Ferriday 1-yard line where Vines snuck it in for the score. Josh Fauvre kicked the PAT to put the Vikings on the board.
Scott reeled off a 32-yard run on Ferriday's first play after the score and four plays later Thompson scored on a 9-yard run with 8:23 remaining. Scott kicked the conversion for a 27-7 lead.
After two exchanges of punts, Vidalia pulled to within 27-14. Vines completed a 42-yard scoring pass to Jamale Davis. Fauvre's PAT cut the lead to 13 with 3:21 remaining.
Vidalia recovered a Trojan fumble on Ferriday's next possession, but a dropped touchdown pass kept the Vikings from capitalizing.
"I expected us to come out with a little more fire," said Vidalia head coach Gary Paul Parnham. "But I credit Ferriday, they have a good team. They gave us some different looks than what we expected. We played a little better in the second half, but there's a lot of room for improvement."
In the first game of the night, Block used a tipped touchdown pass with 1:18 remaining to key a 20-13 win over Delhi Charter.
Block wasted very little time scoring after a Gator fumble as VaShawn Davis went 52 yards for a score on the Bears' first play from scrimmage with 10:46 remaining. Trey Vault ran in the conversion.
Delhi Charter got on the board with 41 seconds remaining in the first quarter, completing a 68-yard drive aided by three offsides penalties on Block as Riccie Gray went in from two yards out. Gary was stopped short on the conversion.
Delhi went up 13-8 as Rob Simmons scored on an 18-yard run. The PAT kick put the Gators Delhi seem to have the game in hand when their scored their second touchdown and kicked the extra point to lead 13-8. Gabe Robinson added the kick.After an exchange of punts, Block took over on its 43-yard line. Following a 14-yard run the Delhi Charter 43, Block quarterback Chuck Bowie threw a long pass that was tipped by a Gator defender into the hands of Preston Bowman, who walked untouched into the end zone. The conversion run failed leaving the Bears with a 14-13 lead.
"That's just the way I drew it up," Block coach Benny Vault said seconds after the play.
Bowman then intercepted a Gator pass with 37 seconds remaining and returned it 43 yards for the final score of the night.
"I was pleased with the way it came out," Vault said. "I knew conditioning would be a factor. We were missing six starters, but I was happy with the way our kids performed."
Tensas Parish fell to Madison Parish 16-0 in the second game.
Vidalia faces Block in Jonesville Friday, while Ferriday High opens its season at Natchez High.
