BOONEVILLE -- Senior, Hunter Henley, picked off a Weston Bobo pass at the 12 yard line, with 1:52 remaining in the game to help Booneville hold off Kossuth in Division 1-3A action at Tiger Stadium on Friday.

The interception stopped what would may have been the go-ahead score for Kossuth.

Booneville went on to win the contest -- which decided the No. 2 seed and home playoff game -- 14-0.

The Blue Devils scored the lone points of the first three quarters in the opening period as they marched from their own 8 and scored off of a Jack Simpson quarterback sneak from the 1-yard line.

After a missed extra point, the score sat at 6-0 until the 1:39 mark of the fourth. Following Henley’s pick, Andrew Lambert sprinted 61 yards into the endzone and after a successful two point conversion on a toss from Simpson to Henley the score sat and would remain at 14-0.

Jacob Meeks, who booted field goals of 40 and 34 yards in last week’s win over Mooreville, had 80 yards on seven carries for Kossuth.

Dejesuse Rogers paced Booneville with 107 yards rushing on 20 carries.

Matthew Stewart came up with a big stop for Kossuth, picking off a Booneville pass with 5:19 left in the third quarter.

The two-touchdown win by the Blue Devils secured second place in Division 1-3A behind North Pontotoc. Kossuth is third, followed by Belmont.

Booneville will host Division 2-3A No. 3 seed North Panola on Friday. Kossuth, making its fourth straight appearance, will travel to face 2-2A runner-up Water Valley.
