Published 12:00 am Tuesday, September 30, 2003

JACKSON &045; An ineffective Luke Ogden spelled trouble for Adams County Christian School against Hillcrest Friday.

The senior workhorse was contained to just 41 yards on 18 carries by the Cougar defense, as Hillcrest (5-0, 3-0 district 2-AAA) mowed over the Rebels in the fourth quarter for a 28-0 victory.

&uot;They’ve got a good defensive front,&uot; AC head coach Keith Walters said of Hillcrest. &uot;It just finally caught up with us. We’re discouraged, but we’re not down.&uot;

Hillcrest ran a balanced offensive attack, as it totaled 168 yards rushing and 157 passing for 325 total yards, as it scored 21 final period points on the Rebels (4-1, 2-1 2-AAA) after leading 7-0 at halftime.

&uot;They dominated the line of scrimmage. Hillcrest is good,&uot; Walters said. &uot;That’s one thing that’s hard to stop Giroud is a good running back.&uot;

The dagger that added insult to injury was the Cougars knack for the big play. On at least three separate occasions, Hillcrest complete 30- and 40-yard passes in third and long situations.

WCCA 35, Huntington 0

FERRIDAY, La. &045; Steady doses of running backs Duston Dore and Travis Allen early propelled the Rams (3-3, 2-0 MPSA district 7-A) out to a 22-0 first quarter lead, and they never looked back.

Dore ran nine times for 136 yards, while Allen returned from an ankle sprain for 85 yards on six carries and contributed on defense with an interception.

&uot;We couldn’t muster any offense. They have a really good team,&uot; Huntington assistant coach Bo Swilley said of the Rams. &uot;My hats off to Paul (Hayles) and his staff. We worked hard, but we couldn’t stop them. They were tough on defense.&uot;

Huntington (2-4, 0-2 MPSA district 7-A) managed only 28 yards of total offense, registering just three touchdowns in the romp.

Columbia 28, Centreville 6

COLUMBIA &045; It took a while for the Cougars’ engine to get running, but when it did it came in a big way.

Columbia (5-1) score 19 third quarter points to break open a scoreless tie on its way to its second MPSA district 4-AA win of the season.

The Cougars did most of their damage on the ground, racking up 324 yards contrasted with just 90 from Centreville (3-3, 1-2 MPSA 4-AA).

The Tigers missed the services of Blake Devall, who was out with an injury he suffered in last week’s 19-7 loss to Parklane.

In his place Chase Paulk chaperoned the ball carrying duties, running nine times for 54 yards.

Tensas 27, Amite School Center 7

LIBERTY &045; Break out the Chiefs, which collected their first win of the season, in a key Mississippi Private School Association district 7-A matchup.

The win also evens Tensas record in district, while the Rebels fell to 0-2 in 7-A play.

After playing a 7-7 tie through one quarter, the Chiefs got touchdowns in the second and third quarters to inch away from ASC. Tensas added a third in the fourth quarter to seal the Rebels fate.
