Class A-Private

Fellowship Christian 45, Mt. Paran 13

How the game was won: Fellowship beat Mt. Paran for the second time this season, getting five touchdown passes and a defensive score and expanding on just a 17-7 halftime lead with three scores in the fourth.

Top performers: Paladins quarterback Jack Hardin was a very efficient 8-of-12 passing for 217 yards, with three touchdown passes to Ryan Reid (25, 14, 16) and two to Merrick Haigler (28, 52), his only catches. Hardin also finished with 17 rushes for 126 yards to lead the Paladins. Reid finished with six receptions for 135 yards, and Andrew Minkert had 12 carries for 85 yards. Garret Depew hit a 33-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. Fellowship’s defensive TD came on a 45-yard interception return from Cameron Gill for the last Paladins score.

Prince Avenue Christian 27, Landmark Christian 10

How the game was won: Prince Avenue Christian dominated the second half to the tune of a 20-0 margin to overcome visiting Landmark Christian. The War Eagles scored the game’s first touchdown before Landmark Christian made its push late in the first quarter. A surge of 10 unanswered points by the Wolverines gave them a 10-7 lead heading into the second quarter and it stood through halftime. Prince Avenue Christian, however, used three second-half rushing touchdowns to run away with a victory.

Top performers: Noah Campbell scored both of his rushing touchdowns in the third quarter to help the War Eagles take control. Thomas Huff’s five-yard scoring run with 8:59 remaining in the contest gave Prince Avenue Christian a 17-point cushion. Sam Wessinger set up Huff’s touchdown with a 54-yard run and his 15-yard scamper help put the War Eagles in position for Campbell’s first of two touchdowns. Lofton Tidwell had a two-yard scoring plunge for Landmark Christian, which also got a 38-yard field goal off the foot of Tom Austin.

Tattnall Square 28, Calvary Day 14

How the game was won: With the game tied 14-14 heading into the fourth quarter, Tattnall Square scored twice inside of six minutes to play to seal the road win.

Top performers: Ahmad Barron scored two of the Trojans’ four touchdowns. He had a 25-yard rushing score on the first possession of the second half, capping a drive that also featured a Barron 35-yard run. Barron iced the victory with an 81-yard TD run with 2:07 left to play. The Trojans’ Vasco Sanders blocked a Calvary Day field-goal attempt with the game scoreless in the first quarter, then TSA got a 56-yard touchdown pass from Miles Morris to Antoine Davis to get on the board. Destin Mack scored the 17-yard go-ahead touchdown with 5:43 left to play.
