228 Sports: Ocean Springs, Gulfport are 3-0 in Region 4-6A play

Biloxi came into Thursday’s home Region 4-6A match-up against defending league champion Ocean Springs somewhat surprisingly tied with the Greyhounds at 2-0 atop the region standings.

It didn’t take OSHS senior stand-out signal-called Bray Hubbard long to change all of that, however.

Hubbard accounted for four first-half scores, throwing three scoring strikes and running for one touchdown, as the Greyhounds won their 16th consecutive regular season game and remained unbeaten at 6-0 on the season with a  48-28 win.

The win moves OSHS to 3-0 in league play, as they shared the top spot in the standings with Gulfport.

Hubbard hit stalwart wide receiver J.P. Coulter on a pair of touchdown tosses early in the game as the Greyhounds took a quick commanding lead they would never relinquish. He hit Coulter on a 39-yard throw seven plays into the game, and then followed that up with a 16-yard fade route for a 14-0 lead six minutes into the game.

Will Gray then added a three-yard scoring dash less than two minutes later, as OSHS took a 21-0 lead heading into the second stanza.

Hubbard himself kept on a two-yard sneak to make it 27-0. He then hit Christian White on a 28-yard scoring pass to wrap up the first-half scoring for the visitors.

Biloxi got a short scoring run from Damaryion Fillmore and also scored on a bit of a trick play on a 4th and 8 situation from its own 16 just before halftime as Troy Suddeth pulled in a lateral from Indian quarterback and hooked up with Tristain Haynes on an 84-yard scoring pass to make it 34-14 at halftime.

Biloxi is now 2-1 in region action.

Speaking of Gulfport, the Admirals sailed into Brett Favre Field in the Kiln to take on home-standing and upset-minded Hancock and took care of business with a solid 41-6 win.

Standout GHS running back Emmanuel Bentley recorded a pair of touchdown runs in the first half, and quarterback Jacob Palazzo hit Tavaris Henshaw on a 10-yard touchdown toss as well to put Gulfport up 21-7 at halftime.

Bentley then added yet another scoring run midway through the third frame to basically end any upset hopes by the Hawks. Palazzo added yet another scoring pass in the fourth period to close out the scoring.

Gulfport remains tied with OSHS at 3-0 in the league race and the Admirals stand 5-1 overall with their only loss coming to mighty Picayune. Hancock meanwhile, coming off of a big 14-point win over Hancock last week, drops to 1-2 in league play and 4-3 overall.

And speaking of St. Martin, Harrison Central moved to 2-1 in Region 4-6A action with a 28-14 win over the visiting Yellow Jackets at Earl Phillips Stadium in Lyman Thursday night.

St. Martin is now 0-3 in league play.

Also in Region 4-6A action Thursday night, D’Iberville pulled out a 44-37 win over homesteading Pascagoula in double overtime at War Memorial Stadium.
Warriors quarterback Gage Peterson scored the game-winning score on a one-yard sneak in the first possession of the second extra session. D’Iberville then turned the Panthers away on four downs to pick up the much-needed win.
 
Pascagoula led 27-7 in the third quarter. D’Iberville kept its playoff hopes alive moving to 1-2 in league play and 2-5 overall and also snapped a five game losing streak in the process. The Panthers fell to 0-3 in league play and 2-4 overall.
