GAME OF THE WEEK PREVIEW: Madison Central

GAME OF THE WEEK: Madison Central prepares for Northwest Rankin

Madison, MS (WLBT) - This week’s game of the week is a Region 2-6A metro showdown between two top-10 teams.

Northwest Rankin makes the short trip to Madison Central and the Cougars are looking to remain perfect in district play.

A win for the Cougars this Friday would mean they win the division title but, the last time NWR beat MC was back in 2010.

“It’s going to be a great ball game,” Madison Central Head Coach Anthony Hart said. “Two teams that are trying to get that number one spot in the region, so that’s what we’re fighting for.”

Northwest Rankin runs a powerful offense this season, but the Jags say they can slow down the Cougars in “The Jungle.”

“They have speed on their offense and defense,” Madison Central senior Westbrooks Ross said. “They’re just tough. They’re a physical team. We just have to go out there and play our best.”
