Centreville 22, Parklane 21

McCOMB — Centreville was on the verge of going 0-2 on the season after trailing Parklane 15-13 at halftime. But the Tigers rallied in the second half for a one-point win over the Pioneers Friday night.

“A different team showed up tonight. The kids played with a lot of fire,” Centreville assistant coach Brian Stutzman said. “The line blocked. Running backs ran hard. We completed a few passes. It was a very emotional game. It’s a rivalry game. It’s a big win. We didn’t want to go 0-2 against Parklane.”
