|Vidalia, Ferriday go scoreless|
When Vidalia and Ferriday meet on September 7 in Ferriday they will have some unfinished business to attend to as the two teams played to a 0-0 tie after two quarters at the Vidalia Jamboree Saturday at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium.
"i was proud of the way our kids played, but I'm not satisfied," said Vidalia coach Gary Paul Parnham. "We made some mistakes, but they are correctable."
"We still have a lot of work to do," said Ferriday first-year coach Cleothis Cummings. "We're still teaching fundamentals. The timing for our quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs has to come with playing time. Our defense did a real good job. We've still got some areas that need correcting. Those are the areas we are going to focus on."
Ferriday started off the jamboree with a squib kickoff that the Trojans almost recovered, but Vidalia fell on the ball at their own 42.
The Vikings were forced to punt and Ferriday started its first possession at its 28-yard line.
The Trojans were forced to punt from their own 44, but Vidalia was forced to punt.
The Trojans threatened as Shannon Morales completed a pass to a diving Trey Hall at the Viking 16-yard line. Vidalia forced the Trojans to turn the ball over at the Viking 11-yard line.
Ferriday threatened in the second quarter as Morales completed a 50-yard pass to Adrian Wiggins to the Vidalia 30.
Morales was sacked for a 5-yard loss, but completed a pass to Wiggins to the Vidalia 8.
An incompletion and two straight penalties moved the ball back to the 19 where an errant snap was recovered by Charles Albert of Vidalia at the Ferriday 37.
Vidalia converted a fourth-and-one at the Viking 48-yard line with five minutes remaining.
Johnny Anderson ran 13 yards and Trashone Mays carried it to the 33. A 5-yard pass from Whitley Jonterrus Townsend moved the ball to the Ferriday 23 with a minute remaining.
Whitley was sacked on the final two plays of the game back at his 30.
Block defeated Tensas Parish 12-0 in the first two-quarter contest.
William Cummings scored on a 3-yard run after Ken Colbert returned the kickoff 57 yards to the Tensas 33.
TyQuentin Bell scored on a 12-yard run in the second quarter.
Vidalia unveiled its new flex offense, using several different running backs.
"I thought Michael ran the option as well as he has run it since he has been here," Parnham said. "He ran the offense well. We just have to do a better job of blocking."
