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.

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.
