Southaven continues its grip on the top spot in the current DeSoto County News football First Four, entering Friday’s scheduled games.
The unbeaten (8-0) Chargers are first among DeSoto County’s football teams, followed in second by Northpoint Christian (6-3), which ends its regular season ahead of next week’s playoffs on Friday in a TSSAA Division II-AA West Region tussle with Lausanne Collegiate of Memphis.
In third, despite a 35-0 thrashing suffered last week at the hands of South Panola, is DeSoto Central, which tonight faces Southaven for the Odis McCord Trophy. Moving up to take the number four spot is Hernando (4-5), which used last week’s 37-7 victory over Horn Lake to enter again the First Four circle.
Here are tonight’s schedule of DeSoto County football games:
- Lewisburg at Olive Branch
- DeSoto Central at Southaven
- Lake Cormorant at Columbus
- Horn Lake at South Panola
- Center Hill at Hernando
- Lausanne Collegiate at Northpoint Christian
