Centreville cruises to win, WCCA falls

CENTREVILLE — Casey Haygood threw three touchdown passes, and Austen Addington scored touchdowns on special teams and offense as the top-ranked Centreville Academy Tigers celebrated homecoming with a 48-16 win over the Amite School Center Rebels Friday night.

Haygood threw touchdowns to three different receivers — Jordan Clark and Tyler Caston in the first quarter, and Colby Shaw in the second quarter. Haygood was 3-for-7 with one interception for 91 yards. He didn’t have to throw the ball much because Centreville’s running game showed up strong for the Tigers.

Addington didn’t take long to make his presence known in this game. After Jake Haygood’s 9-yard touchdown run and Daivd Booty’s two-point conversion run made it a 35-8 game with 5:37 to go until halftime, Addington scored on an 82-yard kickoff return just 13 seconds later. Just like that, Centreville was leading 42-8.

Addington scored on an 18-yard run late in the third quarter to give the Tigers a 48-8 advantage. He finished with 56 yards rushing on 11 carries, and Mark Curry had 96 yards and one touchdown on just four carries.

Centreville ended up with 232 total rushing yards, 19 first downs and 348 yards of total offense. The Tigers’ defense held the Rebels to nine first downs, 12 passing yards and 210 yards of total offense.

Centreville Academy (8-1) finishes its regular season next Friday at 7 p.m. at Oak Forest Academy.

CENLA Christian Academy 40, WCCA 2

PINEVILLE, La. — Dezmond Eddie had two touchdown runs and a touchdown reception as the CENLA Christian Academy Lions rolled past the Wilkinson County Christian Academy in the Rams’ regular-season finale Friday night.

Instead of throwing the ball wildly like it usually does, CENLA Christian had a balanced attack on offense in this game. The Lions had 148 rushing yards, and quarterback Peyton Gauthier completed 13 of 23 passes for 155 yards with two touchdowns and just one interception.

Eddie had touchdown runs of 8 and 37 yards in the first quarter and had a 13-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter. Gauthier also had a 7-yard touchdown run just one minute into the ball game. Jeremiah Jefferson picked off a pass and returned it 74 yards for a touchdown with 59 seconds to go until halftime that gave the Lions a 34-0 lead at the break.

WCCA’s only points occurred when Jamal Vessell made a tackle in the end zone for a safety with 6:03 remaining in the game. He was the only player who could really get anything going against CENLA Christian’s defense with 122 yards on 18 carries.

WCCA (3-6) does not have a game next Friday night, but the Rams will be in the MAIS Class A Playoffs in two weeks.
