South Panola got on the board late in the first quarter on Wiley’s 15-yard run. Hudson then connected with Reggie Morris on the two-point conversion to give the Tigers an 8-0 lead.

On the following kickoff, Shorter recovered a fumble on the Eagle one-yard line to set up South Panola’s next score  two plays later as Ryan Lee plowed into the end zone from four yards out.

South Panola extended its lead to 20-0 midway through the second quarter on Hudson’s 24-yard pass to Boothe that capped a two-play, 68-yard drive.
