Wilkinson County shuts out Prentiss

WOODVILLE — The Wilkinson County Wildcats decided to change their offensive game plan to take some pressure off quarterback Devin Voorhies. And it worked so well, Prentiss had no answer for it.

The change was that Wilkinson County went from its aerial assault to the ground game and the Wildcats racked up 25 first downs and 303 rushing yards in their 41-0 win over the Bulldogs in an MHSAA Region 7-3A game Friday night.

“The staff worked hard and put in some stuff. That’s what we went with,” Wildcats head coach Kenneth Brown said. “The offensive line played well and we were able to sustain a running game. This was a good game plan.”

Nicholas Hull led the rushing attack with 105 yards on 13 carries. La’Darian Peterson had two touchdown runs during a 20-point second quarter that opened up the game and finished with 52 yards on five carries. Even Voorhies got in on the act with 88 yards and one touchdown on seven carries. He also completed eight of 21 passes for 95 yards and one touchdown, a 14-yarder to Trae McKenzie in the second quarter.

Dwayne Anthony came in for Voorhies in the second half and completed four of six passes for 52 yards and one touchdown. Allenzae Staggers had three catches for 38 yards and one touchdown. Wilkinson County’s defense also had an outstanding performance.

The Wildcats improved to 8-2 and finished second in Region 7-3A with a 3-2 mark. They host the MHSAA Class 3A South State Playoffs first-round game at 7 p.m. Friday.
