Vicksburg High School football team pulled off a 14-6 win over Provine on homecoming night.

“I’m glad that we were able to get the win even though our offense didn’t perform all that great but we’re still growing and we’re gonna get back to the drawing board and prepare for Callaway,” Head Coach Todd McDaniel said.

The Gators came out hot as usual on defense with Demarcus Johnson blasting Provine’s running back in the backfield.

A partially blocked punt late in the first quarter by VHS would set them inside the 20-yard line. Collin Johnson and DeCorey Knight Jr. picked up positive yards to setup a one-yard quarterback sneak by Ronnie Alexander for a touchdown. Malik Montgomery got the two-point conversion to give VHS a 8-0 lead.

By the second quarter, VHS still had a 8-0 lead but Provine soon made their way down the field until Caleb Bryant and Wallyeke Curry popped the ball carrier. Kearris Gilliam then came up with a big interception and the score would remain the same going into halftime.

Coming out of halftime VHS forced Provine to punt but Knight mistakenly bobbled the punt and Provine took possession of the ball. The Rams failed to make anything happen offensively and had to punt the ball again where Tyler Henderson picked up 19 yards on the return.

VHS woke up offensively in the fourth quarter when Johnny Smith scored on a 27-yard run making the score 14-0.

Late in the fourth quarter, Provine would gain 41 yards from a punt return which setup a 13-yard touchdown.

VHS remains undefeated in district play with a overall 4-2 record.
