Jackson Prep continues undefeated handing Jackson Academy their first loss in a 37-7 drubbing in the Brickyard.

Prep put all doubts aside surging to 10-point lead in the first quarter of the annual rivalry game and went into halftime with a 24-0 lead. The Raiders would manage a touchdown in the fourth quarter to avoid the shutout but could not keep up with the Patriots' formidable output.

Prep will cross the Mississippi River Friday to face Oak Forest Academy (5-1,0-1) in Amite, La., while JA gets ready to travel to MRA.

Oak Forest is coming off a 42-28 loss to Presbyterian Christian. PCHS (5-2,1-2) dropped a 41-9 loss to Prep, two weeks ago.x
