Data pix.

Memphis, Tenn. -- On a night when Lincoln Pare became the school's all-time leading rusher, it was Houston's defense and passing game that led the Mustangs to a huge Class 6A Quarterfinal win over Whitehaven.

Houston's 27-6 win provides a little payback for the Mustangs, who saw their season come to an end at the hand of the Tigers a year ago.

Covington inched closer to a third straight trip to the 3A Title game, shutting out Wooddale 27-0.

But it was heartbreak for Fairley.  The Bulldogs went toe to toe with unbeaten Trenton Peabody only to come up one point short, 29-28.

MUS only lost twice this year but both times were to Montgomery Bell Academy as the Big Red ended the Owls’ season.

Thanks to a big night from Jaylen Greenwood, ECS won its ninth game in a row and punched a ticket to the Division II Class AA state championship game, knocking off Lausanne 45-24.

In Mississippi, Olive Branch and Lake Cormorant both came up short while over the bridge in West Memphis, and the Blue Devils opened the playoffs with a 33-28 win over Lake Hamilton.
