Tigers beat Bulldogs, 37-16, in cross-town rivalry game
Following a 37-16 pasting of previously unbeaten cross-town rival Carroll, Neville enjoys a bye this week before battling Ruston at Ruston on Oct. 9 in a key District 3-4A match-up.

Rico Pollard paced Neville with 65 yards rushing on 9 carries, scoring 1 touchdown on the night.
Pollard's score, a 1-yard carry, came with 2:23 remaining in the first quarter. Pollard's TD handed Neville a 14-0 advantage following Matthew Squyres' PAT.
Quarterback Taylor Burch scampered 11 yards for Neville's first touchdown in the contest, but a pass on a two-point conversion attempt failed.
With less than 30 seconds remaining in the first quarter Burch connected with Jeremy Runner on a 26-yard scoring strike. Taylor Stokes hauled in a catch from Runner for the two-point conversion, giving Neville a 22-0 advantage at the end of one quarter of play.
The Tigers added two more scores in the first half.

Less than two minutes later, Runner added a touchdown on a 15-yard run, but the PAT failed.
