Paris with the rematch we all wanted to see. Sports brought to you by RENO TIRE AND SERVICE CENTER.
On Friday night, the Paris Wildcats advanced past the Area Round of the playoffs with a 38-28 victory over Midlothian Heritage, as heard on 101.9 KBUS. The Jaguars scored on the Last play of the first half to take a 28-21 lead into the half. Paris’ defense stepped up in the second half, though, as they shut out Heritage. That sets a matchup with district opponent Melissa this Friday night in Commerce. Melissa and Paris were to play earlier in the district before they canceled the game due to a COVID forfeit by the Wildcats.
In other football action, Rivercrest fell to Crawford 44-6 while Cooper lost to Bosqueville 44-12. In six-man, Fannindel got by Gordon 60-40.
