(WVUE) - Edna Karr's state title defense got a stiff challenge from Carver Friday night as the Rams' swinging gate offense kept the Cougars guessing much of the night before Brice Brown's team eventually prevailed, 40-35.
If the Cougars can get past Northwood in the quarterfinals, they'll face the winner of Warren Easton-Woodlawn. The Eagles dominated North Desoto, 54-0, thanks in large part to Lance Legendre, who accounted for four touchdowns.
Class 4A's #2-seed Lakeshore continues their Cinderella story after beating Tioga, 40-19. They're on the other end of the bracket from Karr and Easton so their next matchup is #7 Neville, who snuck past McDonogh 35.
