|Vidalia hosts Buckeye Thursday|
Wossman High outscored Ferriday 27-16 in the second half to defeat the Trojans 46-29 Friday in Monroe.
Ferriday fell to 1-3 with the loss.
Wossman's first touchdown came after high snap from center and another after a high snap on a punt.
Four of their touchdowns started in our territory," said Ferriday coach Chad Harkins. "We just made too many mistakes."
Ferriday had hung tight to the Wildcats in the first half, and trailed by a single touchdown, 19-13, going into the locker room.
The third quarter was when fatigue began to show for the visitors, who gave up a total of 264 yards on the ground to Wossman.
"They dressed out 70 players," Harkins said. But there running back (Herdurius Scott) carried the ball 35 times and also played defensive end the entire game. We moved the ball on them, but then we would stall because of a mistake or not executing."
Scott ran for 155 yards and three scores on just nine carries. He also returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown.
Wossman improved to 2-2 with the win, posting a win over Madison (70-6) while falling to Carroll and South Terrebonne.
Ferriday hosts another Class 4A school Friday as Peabody High of Alexandria comes to town.
Vidalia High played keep away from Avoyelles in the first quarter, but the Mustangs were able to get their high-octane ground game going over the final three periods to defeat the Vikings 24-12 in the District 3-3A opener for both team in Moreauville Friday.
Vidalia successfully completed three straight onside kicks, scoring after the first two as Jame Davis scored on runs of 2 and 14 yards.
"Our kids played hard," said Vidalia coach Gary Paul Parnham. "I felt like if we could have scored on our third possession that maybe would have sealed the deal."
When the Mustangs finally got the ball late in the first quarter, they used a 14-play, 97-yard drive to get on the board as Jon Bordelo scored on a one-yard run.
Quarterback Romero Turner ran in hte conversion.Neither team scored in the second quarter. Avoyelles running back Matthew McGee, who ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the game, gave Avoyelles the lead for good as he scored on runs of 17 and 2 yards in the second half.
Avoyelles finished with 373 rushing yards.
"The defense was very solid and credit them for not allowing Vidalia for breaking long runs which has been a problem for us this year," said Avoyelles coach Andy Boone. "This Mustang defense needed this kind of game to build some confidence in their unit and they can only go forward through the rest of the season."
Vidalia returns to district action Thursday at home against Buckeye.
The Vikings play their final non-district game on October 8 when they host Pearl River High School for its Homecoming.Vidalia High first-year head football coach Gary Paul Parnham is hoping history repeats itself Thursday as the Vikings host Buckeye in a District 3-3A contest at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium.
Last year, Vidalia dropped its first four games before defeating Buckeye 6-3 in Deville in the Squirrel Bowl.
