McComb vs. Brookhaven
It was an electric start between the Tigers and the Panthers in McComb.
A double reverse play on the opening kickoff of the contest led Ole Miss commit and McComb Tiger Sanfrisco Magee on an adventure down the sideline and into the end zone to give McComb an early 6-0 lead.
On the ensuing kickoff, Brookhaven decided it was their turn to take one to the house as Jaden Allen weaved through McComb and over the byline to give the Panthers an early 7-6 lead.
It was the only lead of the game for Brookhaven as the Tigers of McComb scored 18 unanswered points to stay undefeated on the season and improve to a 4-0 record.
“They played great,” McComb head coach Alden Foster said. “Offensively, we moved the ball all night, we just didn’t finish. There’s stuff we have to clean up. We got a little impatient as coaches to just try and hit the big play. Hats off to the defense. We have only given up 13 points in four games. That’s lights out!”

They believe in themselves, and if they keep doing that, we’re going to be fine. We play great teams every week, and man, these kids deserved [the win]. They worked hard for this and they owe it to each other and I’m proud of them.”
