The MHSAA football playoffs saw some intriguing results last week.
In Class 4A, Corinth pulled off a big upset of Pontotoc (1:30), rallying from a 21-point deficit and getting a game-winning field goal from Michael Baugus. In 6A, Tupelo saw its unbeaten season ruined in a first-round loss to Warren Central (5:52), as turnovers doomed the Golden Wave. And in 3A, Urriah Shephard and Houston bested Clark Mills and North Pontotoc (9:08).
So, six area teams remain the playoffs. Brad and Dalton preview some of the key games, including Philadelphia at Calhoun City (10:49), which is led by the dynamic rushing duo of Treshon Cooper and Keshun Parker. The host Wildcats are the reigning 2A state champs.
Houston will host Yazoo County (12:51), which is led by 3A Mr. Football Kenny Gainwell. And in 1A, Okolona rides a nine-game winning streak into its home matchup with Brooks (14:19).
On the basketball front, Tupelo’s boys rolled past Shannon on Tuesday, and the girls have lost a key player for the season (15:16).
And finally, Brad presents Athletes of the Week (17:50).
