Bassfield completes perfect season; Stringer comes back to claim title

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

It was a tale of two different games, but both shared the same ending. Friday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Stadium, Bassfield High School completed a historic season, finishing 16-0 after a dominating 35-0 win over Eupora for the 2A state crown.

Stringer, meanwhile, needed to come back twice to finally overthrow French Camp Academy, and clinch the 1A state championship with a 20-17 win. Red Devils' junior quarterback Tevin Moore faked a hand-off out of the shotgun, bolted to his right and tight-rope-walked the sideline to give his team the go-ahead touchdown.

French Camp had one more chance, and almost made the most of it. After a completing a few short range passes, and watching his bruising tailback get the ball to the Stringer 30-yard line, Panthers quarterback Jesse Hosket looked over the middle and found Red Devil defensive back Mason Avery. The sophomore picked off the pass in the middle of the field, and secured Stringer's first championship since 1992.

Bassfield struck quickly when Rod Williams buzzed 65 yards down the left sideline for the game's first score, but the Yellow Jackets were far from done. A blocked punt for a touchdown, and two more touchdowns later, Bassfield held a 28-0 halftime lead, and never looked back.
