A Look Back at Week 4’s Top Matchups

#8 Hinds (2-1) 34

Mississippi Gulf Coast sophomore running back Antwan Wells rushed for 150 yards and three touchdowns as the top-ranked Bulldogs edged out a 41-34 victory at No. 8 Hinds. Bulldogs freshman quarterback Terrian Page totaled 215 yards of offense and rushed for two touchdowns. Hinds made a late push with freshman quarterback James Summers’ 33-yard touchdown pass to sophomore wide receiver Keithon Redding with 1:56 remaining. Mississippi Gulf Coast secured the onside kick however, sealing the key win in the MACJC South Division.

#10 ASA (0-1) 15
#7 Georgia Military (4-0) 22

No. 7 Georgia Military survived a defensive struggle Sunday, defeating No. 10 ASA 22-15 in Morgantown, W.V. ASA tied the game at 15-15 early in the fourth quarter when freshman quarterback Aaron Young connected with sophomore wide receiver Jesse Yorke for a 6-yard touchdown pass. The Bulldogs quickly responded with a go-ahead rushing touchdown by freshman running back Jovon Robinson from nine yards out. Georgia Military stiffened up defensively in the final 10 minutes to hold on for the victory. 


#20 Scottsdale (3-1) 58
#14 Mesa (3-1) 55

No. 20 Scottsdale and No. 14 Mesa did not disappoint those expecting a shootout as the Fighting Artichokes outgunned Mesa, 58-55. Thunderbirds sophomore quarterback Blake Kemp passed for 556 yards and five touchdowns but was overshadowed by 588 yards and five touchdowns by Scottsdale sophomore quarterback Blake Decker. Despite the offensive fireworks, it was Artichokes sophomore defensive back Patrick Glover who made the play of the game with an interception returned 45 yards for a touchdown.
