Let’s forget the rivalry for at least this week. Forget “The School Up North.” Forget “Cow College.” Forget, even, the Egg Bowl. Heaven knows, we will get there soon enough.
The Bruce Trojans played the best half of football of the season Friday night. Unfortunately, it followed one of their worst in a 28-21 loss to Eupora.
Number one ranked Calhoun City scored the first 20 points Friday night in a 44-18 win over East Webster to remain perfect on the season.
Vardaman is searching for answers, and searching for its first win of the season. The Rams lost an ugly 64-7 game Friday against Coldwater, and coach Larry Gann said he was “embarrassed” by the performance.

We all know what happened last weekend. Call it The Mississippi Massacre. Ole Miss and Mississippi State made the Magnolia State the epicenter of college football.
Vardaman was less than three minutes away from their first victory in almost two years when Biggersville scored two late touchdowns to hand the Rams another heart breaking defeat.
Calhoun Academy Coach Tim Melton isn’t interested in moral victories, but he wasn’t upset with his team’s performance in their 52-36 loss at Briarfield last Friday.
Calhoun City head coach Perry Liles had won seven in a row over the arch rival Bruce Trojans in the Skuna River Rivalry. Junior running back Brieton Sykes made sure the streak would stay alive, rushing for 217 yards on 10 carries to lead the Wildcats to a 56-15 victory at D.L. Harrison field.
