The Pearl River Central defense put in an impressive performance as a group Friday night, holding Pascagoula to 127 yards of total offense in a 17-7 win for the Blue Devils in Carriere.
PRC senior linebacker Steven Gallodoro was one of the players who had a big night with a pair of plays at crucial points in the game. He had the game-clinching sack with less than 2 minutes remaining and had a second-quarter interception to preserve PRC's 7-0 lead at the half.
Gallodoro finished with nine tackles, two for lost yardage and an interception. Fellow senior linebacker David Salser added 11 tackles.
The win keeps the Blue Devils atop Region 4-5A at 5-0.
Never miss a local story.
The Blue Devils return to action this Friday against Hattiesburg and finish up the regular season on Nov. 6 against arch-rival Picayune.
