ACCS found out they have work to do by the way Wilkinson County Christian Academy ran over them 30-0.

Rebel running back Duncan Guedon was injured in the second half Friday night and it is questionable to whether or not he can play this coming Friday when ACCS go to Trinity to renew their cross town rivalry.

The Huntington Hounds were unable to hold on to the lead and fell to Central Private 20-13.

Three fumbles hurt the Hounds.

Central Private scored the winning touchdown just two minutes into the fourth quarter and was able to hold off the Hounds for the rest of the game.

Centreville Academy defeated Brookhaven Academy 27-14.

The Tigers put up 19 points in the first half. Nick Goudeau scored all four touchdowns and rushed for 156 yards.

All the area schools will be in action this Friday.

Centreville Academy travels to Parklane, Huntington will try for their first win at WCCA, Natchez High opens their season at home against Jefferson County, Vidalia High School takes on Block at Viking Field, Ferriday opens at home against Madison Parish, Franklin Academy travels to Tensas Academy, Cathedral welcomes Dexter in a district game and Franklin County goes to Hazelhurst.
