SCOOBA, MS – The Itawamba Community College football team ran into a buzz saw East Mississippi Community College and the No. 2 Lions picked up a 59-13 victory to earn the MACJC North Division championship on Thursday.

Trailing 14-0, Griff Loftis (Mooreville) found Archie Dennard (Hollandale Simmons) on a 4-yard touchdown pass before the Lions pulled away for a 31-7 halftime lead.

Loftis later found Shante Rogers (Itawamba AHS) on a 49-yard scoring strike to make it 39-13 in favor of the Lions after a failed two-point conversion with 6:52 left in the third quarter.

Dontreal Pruitt, the national player of the week, threw three touchdown passes of 12, 85, and 37 yards and rushed for a 9 yard score in the 59-13 victory.

The Indians 13 points was the most points allowed on the season by the Lions.

ICC will look to rebound next week when they travel to Jones County Junior College to take on the No. 4 Bobcats in the MACJC State semifinals on Saturday.
