UNDATED (WLOX) - The Pearl River Wildcats surrendered only a third-quarter touchdown on the way to a 21-7 win over the Coahoma Tigers in Clarksdale.

White ran for a 1-yard touchdown early in the second quarter. Pearl River missed the point-after try twice in the first half.

Coahoma (0-4, 0-1) finally answered when Domico Ewing caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Quantavious Peterson to slice the deficit to 12-7 with 3:48 left in the third quarter.

The Wildcats (2-2, 0-1) put the game away in the fourth quarter with a 20-yard field goal from Cody Spears and a 6-yard touchdown run from White. Pearl River missed the extra-point attempt again, failing on all three PATs on the night.
