Roundup: Russell Christian blasts KA, sets up Calhoun showdown


MERIDIAN — Lamar        35

Wayne Academy        6

    The Raiders scored four times in the second quarter to turn their MAIS Region 4-AA into a rout on the road Friday.

    Lamar led 7-0 after the first quarter as Corey Skinner scored on a 7-yard run. Then in the decisive second quarter, Barrett Dudley hit Danny Weisner on a 46-yard pass and Chase Davis on a 44-yard pass. Lee Martin added scores of 4 yards on a run and 36 yards on an interception return.

    Dudley completed 12 of 16 passes for 181 yards, while Jonathan Young had eight tackles as Lamar allowed just 73 yards to the 1-8 Jaguars, who fell to 0-2.

    The Raiders, who are now 7-2 and 1-0 in the division, host Sylva-Bay Academy in another division game next week.

Neshoba Central    7

Provine    6

    Trailing by six and the clock running out, the Rockets came up with a big play when they needed it most.

    K.D. Monroe blocked a Rams punt with about two minutes left Friday and Patrick Burrage recovered in the end zone to tie it, and when Caleb Crenshaw connected on the extra point, Neshoba evened its Division 2-5A mark at 2-2.

    The Rockets, who are 4-4 overall and right in the mix of the playoff hunt, host Ridgeland next week. The Titans are 5-3 and 3-1 in the division after beating Callaway 31-20.
