Rowdy's Roundup: Week 4
What’s up y’all! Welcome back!
A few of our Top 10 teams rested this week. A few of our Top 10 teams actually squared off on the gridiron. Let’s check out how they all did this week.
#1 Starkville - 72
Columbus - 6
This is what happens when you mess with the nest. Columbus learned the hard way. Elite 10 member Dreke Clark did Drake things and scored a handful of TDs. The Jackets led 45-0 at halftime… and yeah.
I encourage the readers to continue to pray for the family, friends, and the Starkville community as the continue to mourn the loss of videographer Ian Reed. He was killed tragically in a car accident last week. They are all in my prayers.
#2 Horn Lake vs. Washington (Tulsa, OK)
This morning at 11:00am.
The Eagles will represent the Magnolia State in Shreveport, Louisiana. Can’t wait!
#3 Northwest Rankin
#4 Tupelo - 6
#8 Brandon - 34
Prior to this game, the last time Tupelo lost in the regular season was against South Panola in 2015. Let that sink in…
The injury riddled Golden Wave was just overwhelmed by Will Rogers and company in this Top 10 battle. Jonathan Mingo got the party started for the Bulldogs and their defense forced three turnovers before halftime.
I’ve said it before, and I will say it again. Brandon looks legit.
#5 Hattiesburg - 51
#6 Oak Grove - 19
Alright, what more proof do y’all need? Hattiesburg is for real. Period.
Drexlan Allen went off, scoring FIVE touchdowns. Two of those scores came on his first two carries. Oh yeah, Jarod “Snoop” Conner is still putting up big time numbers, with 247 yards through the air and 102 on the ground.
Good luck to any team trying to stop this Hattiesburg offense… you’re going to need it.
#7 Clinton - 42
Germantown - 14
Hello Clinton, welcome to the Top 10.
A great second half start set the tone for the entire night. The Arrows seemed just bigger, faster, and stronger.
Let’s talk about this Clinton defense thus far. They’ve allowed 35 points in four games thus far. Shoot, they even shut down Brandon’s offense last week. Do you know how hard that is to do? Expect that unit to do big things down the road.
#9 West Point
#10 Meridian - 26
Noxubee County - 23
The Wildcats are back to .500 on the season. Don’t let that percentage fool you, Meridian has played some top notch competition. One can make the argument that their non region slate is among the state’s strongest.
It was a nail biter the whole game. The Tigers responded to almost every blow down the stretch. It wasn’t quite enough. Let’s see how Meridian does in region play. They did pretty good against an good defense.
