BUCKEYE, La. — Jeffrey Ivy and Jacob Sinclair each ran for over 100 yards to lead the Buckeye Panthers to a 33-14 win over the Vidalia Vikings Friday night in District 3-3A action.

Sinclair had 106 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 15 carries and Ivy led the way with 121 yards on 16 carries. Buckeye (4-4, 1-2) ran for a total of 298 yards and pretty much had its way with Vidalia’s defense.

“We didn’t execute,” Vidalia head coach Dee Faircloth said. “It was just chaos.”

Vidalia (3-5, 0-3) actually had a 14-13 lead when Kevin Johnson returned a blocked punt 32 yards for a touchdown with 7:03 to go in the third quarter.

Puckett 49, Cathedral 13

PUCKETT — The combination of Matthew Willis and Bobby Williams proved to be too much for Cathedral to handle as the Wolves proved why they are the No. 1 team in Class 1A Friday night.

Cathedral (2-6, 2-6 in Region 4-1A) caught Puckett off guard early on as Preston Edwards threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Braxton Fondren just over two minutes into the game.

Lawrence County 66, Jefferson County 26

FAYETTE — Just one week after upsetting No. 1 Tylertown and moving into the Class 3A polls for the first time in two years, the Tigers were brought back to reality by a good Class 4A Lawrence County team Friday night.

Tigers quarterback Percy Turner completed eight of 20 passes for 211 yards and three touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown late in the third quarter.

Block 15, Northwood-Lena 14

LENA, La. — Curdarius Johnson ran for 141 yards and a touchdown as the Bears held on to upset the Gators Friday night in District 3-1A action.

Akeem Joiner scored on a 16-yard touchdown run for Northwood-Lena (3-3, 1-2) with 2:36 remaining, but the two-point conversion run came up a bit short and Block (2-6, 2-1) won for the second time in three games.
