How the SBLive Mississippi Power 10 teams fared Friday night (Sept. 23 scores)

Madison Central and Warren Central picked up statement wins, while Callaway pulled the upset at Ridgeland

Here's a look at how the teams in the SB Live Mississippi Power 10 poll fared Friday night:


No. 1 Brandon beat Terry 41-13

The Bulldogs (4-0) built a 28-13 lead going into the half and shut the Bulldogs out in the second half. Manny Didia iced it with a 27-yard pick-six.

No. 2 Starkville lost to Madison Central 41-21

The Yellowjackets (4-1) fell behind early and never could find their footing, falling on the road in a rematch of last year’s 6A North Final. What’s worse, quarterback Trey Petty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter.

No. 3 Ocean Springs beat Hancock 42-7

The Greyhounds (4-0) led 7-0 at the half, but put up 28 points in the third quarter and enjoyed a running clock in the fourth. Will Gray had an 85-yard pick-six and Will Smith ran for a couple of touchdowns.

No. 4 Madison Central beat Starkville 41-21

What a statement win for the Jaguars (3-1) — they beat No. 2 Starkville handily thanks to spectacular performances from Vic Sutton, Isaiah Spencer and the Big Blue defense.

No. 5 Picayune beat Pearl River Central 49-7

“There goes that man again” — Dante Dowdell ran for 228 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries as the Maroon Tide (5-0) stayed unbeaten.

No. 6 Tupelo beat Grenada 20-7

The Golden Wave (5-0) led it 14-0 at the half, but struggled offensively in the second half until it got a spark from Zech Pratt’s interception. Jeremiah Harrell tossed a 40-yard touchdown pass to J.Q. Witherspoon on the very next play and the Golden Wave hung on from there.

No. 7 Oak Grove lost to Warren Central 42-41 in OT

The Warriors (3-2) got a touchdown to start the overtime period after playing to a 35-35 tie in regulation, but the Warriors gave up a 10-yard touchdown pass and the Vikings converted the two-point conversion for the win.

No. 8 Warren Central beat Oak Grove 42-41 in OT

Josh Morgan pushed all the chips to the middle of the table, opting for the two-point conversion when an extra point would have tied it. That decision paid off, and the Vikings (4-0) walked away with one of the biggest regular-season wins in years.

No. 9 Louisville beat Noxubee County 21-8

Louisville (4-1) led it 2-0 at the half, then trailed 8-2 until Xavier Hunt connected with Swahili Earby on a 20-yard pass for the go-ahead score. The Wildcat defense buckled down when they needed to in the fourth quarter.

No. 10 Ridgeland lost to Callaway 41-26

The Titans (4-1) had looked unstoppable the first couple of weeks, but they got hit in the mouth Friday night and took way too long to respond. Callaway led it 21-0 after the first quarter and 27-7 at the half.
