WOODVILLE — Tip McKenzie scored four of Wilkinson County Christian’s touchdowns, two on the ground and two through the air, as the Rams defeated Christian Home Educators Fellowship, 52-27 on Friday.

McKenzie’s touchdown receptions came from Todd Gonda, who also had two rushing scores and four extra-point kicks for the Rams.

WCCA led off with a 21-yard run from Gonda, which CHEF answered with an 11-yard pass from Stevie Douglas to Renell Hammond. But the kick was blocked, and McKenzie’s subsequent 69-yard run gave the Rams an 8-point lead.

CHEF scored in the second quarter on a one-yard run from Douglas, but WCCA replied with an 85-yard return from Matthew McGraw on the ensuing kickoff.

The Rams added two more touchdowns on passes of 21 and 16 yards from Gonda to McKenzie.

In the second half, Wilkinson fumbled three times, two of which set up touchdowns for CHEF. One was a 38-yard run from Brandon Smith — the two-point conversion pass from Douglas to Jeremy Arvie was good — and the other was a Ronald Brown 25-yard carry.

But WCCA scored another touchdown in the third and two in the fourth, keeping CHEF scoreless for the rest of the game.

WCCA also welcomed the players, coaches and cheerleaders from the Rams’ 1988 MPSA 2A state championship team during the game.

Centreville 34, Silliman 0

CLINTON, La. — Zack Sinclair ran for two touchdowns and Kyle Brown threw two touchdown passes as the Centreville Tigers defeated the Silliman Wildcats 34-0 in MPSA District 5-AA action Friday night.

Sinclair led Centreville’s potent rushing attack with 11 carries for 108 yards. He had a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and a 2-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Brown had his most productive game of the season, completing 10 of 12 passes for 187 yards.

Brown threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Adam Perry in the second quarter and added a 50-yard scoring pass to Perry in the third quarter. Cliff Hurst had an 11-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Centreville’s defense didn’t give Silliman much of a chance to do anything offensively. The Wildcats were held to 79 yards rushing and 60 yards passing, threw four interceptions and lost two fumbles. Two of those passes were picked off by Colby Lockwood.

In addition to his 71 yards receiving, Perry had one interception. Lockwood had an interception on defense to go with his 59 receiving yards.

Centreville (5-2, 2-1) lost three fumbles of its own. Silliman, which hosts Trinity Episcopal next Friday, fell to 3-2 overall and 1-2 in district play.
