GAME RECAP: River Posts First Winning Season Since 2010 With 10-2 Victory At East Central

’Cats wrap season at 5-4 overall, 2-4 in division play

with hard-fought South Division win over Warriors

DECATUR -
The Pearl River Wildcats clinched their first winning football season since 2010 here Thursday with a hard-fought 10-2 MACJC South Division victory over East Central in both squads’ regular season finale in Bailey Stadium.

The host Warriors generated 215 yards of total offense (152 rush, 63 pass) and limited the Wildcats to 211 (89 rush, 122 pass), to end their 2014 campaign at 3-6 overall and 1-5 in division play, while The River wrapped at 5-4 and 2-4.

Warrior linebacker Aubrey Bourn intercepted quarterback Kaylon Cooper, an Independence CC (Kan.) transfer who prepped at North Little Rock High School (Ark.), on the second offensive snap of the contest at the ECCC 33 and the Warriors managed to drive to midfield before things stalled and Chandler Powell punted 30 yards to the Wildcat 20.

After a five-yard River penalty. Cooper fumbled on a minus-seven-yard sack and East Central recovered at the eight, but four plays later Brennen O’Keefe’s 25-yard field goal attempt sailed wide.

Three punt exchanges later, Pearl River faced a third and three at its won 35 where Cooper lost a second fumble and the Warriors took over. Seven snaps later, East Central was sitting with a first and goal at the one where Trey Willis fumbled on his quarterback sneak and Alvonte Bell out of Everglades High in Miramar, Fla., recovered for the Wildcats.

Three plays later, the Wildcats drew a holding penalty in the end zone for a safety and the Warriors led 2-0 with 6:20 left before the half.

Three series later, Xavier Grindle of East Marion High intercepted Willis at the ECCC 28. A holding flag pushed things back to the 34 where Cooper kept for 33 to the one, then Darrell Robinson out of Noxubee County High in Raymond followed with a scoring plunge. Jovon Detto’s extra point put PRCC up 7-2 with 1:49 left before halftime.

East Central drove from its own 23 to the Pearl River 43 on the final series of the half.

On Pearl River’s second possession of the third period, the Wildcats drove from their own 36 to the Warrior 32 in eight plays only to see Detto come up short on 49-yard field goal attempt. East Central followed suit with a 10-play, 46-yard drive to the PRCC 25 where O’Keefe’s 39-yard field goal attempt sailed wide.

On the Warriors next possession, Taron Divens of McComb High intercepted quarterback Andrew Dunn near midfield and an incomplete pass later, Cooper connected with Charles Ducksworth of Mize High on a 43-yard pass play to the ECCC five. Three plays later, the Wildcats drew a 15-yard flag and Detto arrived to boot at 35-yard field goal to pump The River’s lead to 10-2 with 4:27 left.

Grindle picked off his second pass of the night on the Warriors’ ensuing possession and Pearl River killed the clock and iced the win.

The Wildcats finished the game with eight first downs to the Warriors’ 12 and were penalized six times for 55 yards to ECCC’s seven flags for 51.

East Central’s Lamarcus Franks led all rushers in the contest with 89 yards on 26 carries, while Marquis Hedge had 77 of 15. Robinson paced River rushers with 32 on 16, while Jerome Keys of Bassfield High had 30 on 11, and Cooper had27 on nine.

Cooper completed six of 15 passes (one interceptions) for all the Wildcats’ aerial yardage, while Willis and Dunn combined for an eight-of-22 effort (three interceptions).

Cody Mikell of Poplarville High punted five times for a 36.8-yard average, while Powell had seven kicks for a 32.3-yard average.

ELSEWHERE AROUND THE MACJC

In other regular-season-ending MACJC action on Thursday, reigning national and state champion, No. 1-ranked and North Division champ East Mississippi (9-0, 6-0) crushed Mississippi Delta (3-5, 2-4) 65-0 in Scooba, Northwest Mississippi (4-5, 4-2) iced the North’s No. 2 seed with a 34-29 win over Coahoma (0-9, 0-7) in Clarksdale, and Holmes (4-5, 3-3) dropped Northeast Mississippi (2-7, 2-4) 37-20 in Booneville.
