The Black and Gold train just keeps on rolling.
Colter Swafford had a fumble recovery and a key interception to seal the win and lead unbeaten and second-ranked (Class 2A) Dresden to a hard-fought 13-7 victory over No. 8 (1A) West Carroll in a District 13A defensive struggle Friday night.
The Lions improved to 7-0 and remained atop the league standings by beating a state-ranked Single-A foe for the second consecutive week.
An eight-yard touchdown run by Joey Caldwell in the second quarter broke a 7-all tie and was the difference between the two teams that each barely broke the 200-yard mark in total offense.
Dresden forced four turnovers in all to end the five-game winning streak of West Carroll (5-2, 2-1).
Jacob Wynn rushed for a game-high 124 yards and WC’s only touchdown — a nine-yard scamper in the second period that capped a 95-yard drive.

Montavious Lagrone scored twice, including the go-ahead TD in the second quarter for D’burg, which held the Cavaliers to just 166 yards of total offense.
Humboldt 29, Halls 14
Nic McLilly continued to shine for the Vikings, running for 185 yards and two touchdowns as H’boldt won its fourth in a row after an 0-2 beginning to the season.
