Vicksburg (6-2) at Ridgeland (5-3)

The Gators used a first-half swarm of 42 points with their dominant ground game to secure an easy Region 2-5A victory 42-20 over the Ridgeland Titans.

The Ridgeland Titans could not cope with Vicksburg’s running game on defense with injuries on both the Titan offense and defense definitely not helping the cause.

Vicksburg increased its win streak to six games and remains undefeated in regional play and is chomping at the heels of Neshoba Central for the top spot in Region 2.

“We preach not to give up the big play every week,” said Vicksburg Head Coach Todd McDaniel said after his defense displayed a good performance. “Our kids really hone into the offense’s formations. [Ridgeland] has big plays and is a big play threat. Our guys did a phenomenal job and as you can see, the defense plays lights out each week. If we continue to play defense like that, we can win any football game.”
