Others with long second round victory droughts include: Abbeville (1971), Ariton (1993), Montgomery Catholic (1989) and Good Hope (1997).

   *   Austin was shutout by Mountain Brook 31-0 in the first round. It was the first time in 101 games the Black Bears did not score dating back to the 2010 football season.

   *   UMS-Wright head football coach has an overall record of 299-85 in 30 years at Shaw, Murphy and UMS-Wright. He will be going for his 300th win this week when the Bulldogs take on Trinity in Montgomery.

   *   North Jackson defeated Curry 47-6 Friday. They have scored 664 points in eleven games for an average of 60.4 points each week. The record for scoring in the regular season was over 90 years old set by the Tuscaloosa Black Bears in 1926 when they averaged 59.1 points over a nine game season. The season record for scoring including the playoffs belongs to Linden set in 2016 when they scored 764 points. The Chiefs have a great shot at that record if they can win a few more games.
