With teams finding their identities and meshing together, week 6 of Friday Football Fever brought some of the best action of the season.

Let’s recap some of the week’s top games:

MUS 40, Ridgeway 22

At Hull-Dobbs Field, the Roadrunners got things started early. On the first play from scrimmage, Tyrique Sandusky went up top to Vincent Taylor for a 73-yard bomb to make it 8-0 after the two-point conversion just seconds into the game.

Immediately after, MUS mishandled the kickoff. Ridgeway would recover deep in their own territory, and they’d make the most of it. Sandusky would hit Kundarrius Taylor on the next play to put Ridgeway up 14-0 just 24 seconds into the game.

MUS would bounce back, with Brandon Foley taking the hand off and making his way to just in front of the goal line. Foley would finish off a few plays later and MUS would finish off the comeback win.

Kingsbury 28, Middle College 24

The Falcons took flight early in Orange Mound. Kobe Westbrook took the ball off the bounce and went untouched to the end zone for a touchdown to put Kingsbury up 7-0.

Middle College would respond as Keyshawn Davis rolled out to find Desten Palmer in the end zone for the score. The extra point would be blocked, making it 7-6 Falcons.

Kingsbury went on the move again when Najja Simmons would take a keeper, but he fumbled and wiped out the big play.


CBHS 51, Sheffield 14

The Wave took a big lead early. Up 37-6 in the 2nd quarter, the backups wouldn’t stop the relentless assault. With Reid Voss in at quarterback, he handed off to Sam Stalnaker, who would just miss the end zone. A few plays later, Voss found the open man in John Keyser Moore for the big win.


Southaven 27, Olive Branch 3

In Southaven, the Chargers welcomed their rivals for a mid-season battle. Southaven got the ground game going early with Gabriel Wilson pounding out the yardage with tough running. He’d then make a move on an inside hand off, taking the play outside for 25 yards into Olive Branch territory.

Three plays later, quarterback Jules Holley called his own number, following his blockers down to the 25 yard line. From there, the Chargers took to the air with a pass to Brandon Echols in the end zone for the touchdown.

Southaven would roll along for the win.


West Memphis 22, Marion 10

Cross-county rivals battled in Marion with the Patriots moving the ball early. Quarterback Peyton Walker rolled out for a pass and tried to squeezed it into coverage when it was picked off by linebacker Jerry Edwards, who took the ball back to the 25 yard line.

The Blue Devils would capitalize early, with Devontae Dean taking the ball for a 17-yard touchdown to give West Memphis the first score of the game. The extra point would miss, and the game would go to 6-0.


Center Hill 43, Lewisburg 7

The Patriots hosted the Mustangs in Lewisburg, and in-state rivals battled out the gate. Lewisburg’s Caleb Williams laid out Center Hill’s Justin Buckingham, who was carrying out a fake and got hit hard.

Trailing 7-0, Center Hill would get on the board with a toss sweep to Bryce Evans at the 15. He would hit the sideline and off to the races for an 85-yard scamper and a touchdown to tie it.


North Panola 54, Manassas 6

North Panola Cougars were welcomed to Memphis at Crump Stadium to take on the Tigers.

This game was a blowout early, with North Panola leading 32-6 in the 2nd quarter when the Cougar defense made the gap even larger. Sylvonta Oliver picked off a Tiger pass, and with nobody in front of him, he took it to the house for a 67-yard pick six to make it 40-6.

Late in the first half, Cougar QB Kenneth Jefferson tossed up a pass for Jarvis Echols, who snagged it and made his way to the end zone to make it a 46-6 lead at the half.
