Friday Football Fever: Week 3

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Friday Football Fever continues in Week 3! Here are some of the best games from across the Mid-South this week:

Whitehaven 29, Cordova 12

The defending Tennessee Class 6-A State Champion Whitehaven Tigers traveled northeast to face the Wolves of Cordova.

It was the 'Haven that knocked Cordova out of the state playoffs in the Semifinal round, and the Wolves say they haven't forgotten.

Midway through the first, Whiehaven quarterback Vincent Guy finds William Gay on the deep out to the Cordova 15-yard line.

Couple of plays later, Guy on the quarterback keeper, refused to go down.

He got in for the Tigers first touchdown of the night, but a missed PAT left Whitehaven with a 6-0 score.

Late in the first quarter, Whitehaven started driving again, running back Chris Witherspoon got the 'Haven rolling again with a big gain.

By the start of the second quarter, Whitehaven was in the red zone.

That's when Witherspoon forced himself into the end zone for another Tigers touchdown.

Whitehaven makes it three in a row over the 'Dova.

Lausanne 48, Harding 21

It's a Division Two duel on Cherry Road as the Lausanne Lynx, the defending D-2 State Champions, head into the Lions Den at Harding Academy.

First quarter, Lausanne star running back Eric Gray took a hand off up the middle and broke away for a 38 yards score.

Lynx took a 14-0 lead.

Later in the game, Gay again broke tackles to an 18-yard touchdown run.

Lausanne up 21-nothing with that score and no looking back for the Lynx.

East 7, Central 13

The defending Tennessee Class 4-A State Champion East High Mustangs grappled with the up and coming Central High Warriors of head coach Lynord Crutchfield.

Fourth quarter, East quarterback Justin Lynn threw a screen pass to an open receiver who took it up the field for the first down.

A few plays later, fourth-and-goal on the 1, Lynn, under center, fought his way for the game tying touchdown, 7-7 the score.

The following drive, Central running back Dontavion Davis took a handoff up the middle, avoiding several defenders all the way to the 10-yard line.

Allen Thornton did the rest as he ran for a 5-yard touchdown that proved to be the game winner.

Sheffield 7, Raleigh-Egypt 47

Raleigh-Egypt hosted the Knights of Sheffield High School.

An offensive field day for the Pharoahs.

Collierville 47, Bartlett 29

The Bartlett Panthers, hosted the Dragons of Collierville High School.

Dragons go up 28-14 early after quarterback Matt Connors hits Marcus Berzosa for a 15-yard TD.
