PLAYOFF TIME – Southwest Broadcasting goes to the postseason

Win and advance. Lose and go home.

It’s playoff time for almost every high school football team in Southwest Mississippi. Here’s where the Southwest Broadcasting family of radio stations will be this Friday night.

Benjie Embry has the call for the Parklane Pioneers, who are on the road to face Jackson Prep in the MAIS playoffs. The game will be broadcast on K106, 105.7, and online at Pregame begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The Southwest Broadcasting Game of the Week is back in McComb, as the Tigers host old-school rival Lawrence County in the MHSAA 4A playoffs. The game begins around 6:45 on WAZA 107.7, and you can listen live to the media player at this link.

Brookhaven Academy has the home field advantage for the MAIS playoffs — the Cougars will host Kirk Academy Friday night. Ken Hollingsworth has the call on B92.1 The Boss, and the game is live online at this link.

Franklin County is in the MHSAA playoffs, too. The Bulldogs host Hazlehurst on two stations — Magic 104.3 the Highway 104.9. You can hear the game online here and here.

Other games of import around Southwest Mississippi:

  • South Pike at Columbia 
  • Sumrall at North Pike
  • Wilkinson County at Raleigh
  • Pelahatchie at Bogue Chitto 
  • Pisgah at Loyd Star 
  • Amite County at Scott Central 
  • Amite School at Centreville Academy
  • Sharkey-Issaquena at Wilkinson Christian 
  • Wesson at Tylertown 
  • Brookhaven at South Jones 
  • Enterprise-Lincoln at Mount Olive 

Brookhaven at South Jones is not a playoff game, but the final game of the regular season in 5A. There is a confusing mathematical mess of a scenario that will determine who in Region 3-5A gets what seed, but the Panthers are 99 percent in the postseason in some way, shape or form.

Even with one more regular season game to go the Enterprise Yellow Jackets are out of the playoffs, however, and it’s a shame. The Jackets have rebuilt their program and had a good year, but after being moved into the max security region of 4-1A with a bunch of well-established killers, they just couldn’t grab one of the four seeds. It would have been wicked to see how the Jackets would have done in their old 7-2A region.
