After a scoreless first quarter, Pine Hills scored twice in the second quarter as Jeff Whittington threw touchdown passes of 18 and 38 yards to Johnathan Honea.

Whittington completed five passes for 99 yards. Honea had nine carries for 73 yards and caught two passes for 56 yards and two touchdowns.

Chad Covey had a 9-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Chris Guidry had 17 carries for 77 yards for the Wildcats.

Luke Davis and Kenneth Clayton each 38 yards rushing and Barrett Arther had three carries for 25 yards. Tom Milliken completed only three of 13 passes for 48 yards.

Milliken appeared to have scored twice on 40-yards runs, but one of the officials thought someone else had the ball and blew it dead both times.

Pine Hills improved to 8-2 overall and 4-2 in district play and still have a chance of getting to the playoffs as a wild card team. Huntington finished with a 3-7 overall record and 2-4 in district.

Ferriday holds on to defeat Block

The Ferriday Trojans nearly blew a 15-0 first quarter lead, but held on to defeat the Block Bears 21-20 in a Louisian District 3-2A game Friday night at Jonesville.

Ferriday scored twice in the first quarter. Cedric Jefferson ran in from 23 yards. Aron Thomas converted on a two-point conversion run.

Marcus Washington then caught a 31-yard touchdown pass. The extra point was good and the Trojans seemed to be in control.

In the second quarter, however, Ferriday fumbled the ball and Brian Savage recovered the ball at the Trojans’ one-yard line and ran in from there. Ricardo Barber ran in for the two-point conversion and the Bears trailed 15-8 at halftime.

&uot;It was a tough game. Block came ready to play,&uot; said Ferriday head coach James McFarland.

The Bears then scored in the third quarter on a 65-yard run by Barber, who had 25 carries for 217 yards. The extra point was no good.

Ferriday scored on a 10-yard run by Jefferson, who had nine carries for 91 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bears answered again on a 75-yard touchdown run by Barber, his second of the game. The extra point, which would have tied the game, was no good.

&uot;They outplayed us in every area, but we won the game. We scored three touchdowns. The defense came through for us. They kept Block from scoring the go-ahead touchdown,&uot; McFarland said.

Cory Gordon had 12 carries for 70 yards for the Trojans. The defense was led by Marcus Washington, who had 15 tackles, and Jefferson, who had 14 tackles.

Ferriday improved to 5-3 overall and 2-0 in district play and will play McCall next Friday.
