- but lee still likes to spread i- around... this time... hooking- up- with markis hawthorne... and- that's what happens when- you play soft coverage on these- guys... first down moss - point.- and the tigers averaging 36 - points per game... so this- touchdown just felt - inevitable... la-darrius- matthews- running the wheel route... and- lee putting the touch in- touchdown... beautiful pitch an- catch... right into your living- room... tigers go up, 7-6.- - - - but grace... tigers miss a- two-point conversion in - the fourth quarter... and - lose... 20-19.- they beat stone by one point in- the first round, last year... - lose- by one point, this year.- - the other number one seed from- the gulf coast coming - out of region 7 class 4-a:- reigning south state champion - poplarville... hosting florence- in the first round of - playoffs.

- - not everybody kicking off - post-season play, tonight...- with a lot still to be- decided... in the 6-a, 5-a, 1-a- classifications.- the big game that jumps to mind- - - - is another one featuring- harrison central... with the- chance to claim a first - round home game... after an - emotional loss to district- champion d'iberville last week.- but ocean springs is gonna have- - - - a lot to say about that... with- the greyhounds currently holdin- down the second - seed... in region 4 class 6-a.- ocean springs a game up on- harrison central, in the- standings... but the- head-to-head tie-breaker... wil- give the- second seed... to whoever wins- this game.- we pick it up second quarter...- and due to the- nature of when i got to - greyhound stadium... this is- the only ocean springs highligh- we got... but it's a- big one... bray hubbard pulling- back the read option... - definitely the right read... an- the southern miss baseball- commit is a "g" plus one... - that's gone... touchdown- greyhounds ties the game, at 14- all... glad to see him back - healthy.- ensuing harrison central- possession... death by 1,000- cuts... as the red rebels - convert a big third down here..- christian - turner and kaveon tatum getting- it done.- now grace... of all the players- on the gulf coast... the- hardest one to tackle might be- this guy... atavian ray... hear- he's a- - - - beast of powerlifter as well.

- later... fourth and six, for th- red rebels... but this is just- another one of those cuts... as- turner scrambles past - the sticks... heads up play by- the sophomore... just bleeding- down that first half clock.

- and did i mention the guy that'- really hard to tackle... watch- this... woop... woop... two - missed tackles... and that's- - - - another big time run, by the- 5'5" sophomore.

- now we've gotta check in with - jacobi moore... mississippi - state - commit... already with two- touchdowns, in the first half..- and showing up again here... bi- catch across the middle to keep- this drive alive.

- and yet... another fourth down,- for harrison- central... and this is cut- number 1,000... turner doing it- again with his legs... at the - pylon... touchdown red- rebels... with less than a- minute to go, in the first- half... - huge momentum swing... as they- go into the half... leading - 21-14.- and that might've been the game- winning play... before they - knew it was the game-winning- play... 35-28... harrison - central hosting next week.- - - - - - wxxv >> district and district water one for 465 hours a more see also to work 76 the first time since 1980s the handcart was real strong point to some o rosters and really really set regular for started coming off the issues that are offered to 29 lost william almost spider scores shocker.
