The Georgiana Panthers traveled to Southern Choctaw High School Friday night, coming off a major win over Bayside Academy, but another win wasn't in the cards.

The 1-1 Panthers got behind early in Class 2A Region 1 action Friday night and just never seemed to be able to catch back up with the Indians.

Southern's Cedrick Foster drew first blood with 5:31 remaining in the first quarter with a 1-yard scamper.
