Cordova is in the win column, Addison’s still undefeated and Oakman’s offense stayed hot as high school football teams in the Daily Mountain Eagle’s coverage area hit the midway point of the season.

Addison stayed on track for a region title while Friday’s other winners — Oakman, Cordova, Corner and Winston County — earned non-region wins.

Here are some of the top headlines from week five action:

PILING UP POINTS: Cordova outscored Parrish 33-0 in the second half as the Blue Devils got in the win column with a 54-20 victory over the Tornadoes. The game marked the first win at Cordova for former Parrish coach Jimmy Gay, who led the Tornadoes to the 1A state championship in 2003.

The Cordova-Parrish game was just one of several lopsided scores across the area in Week 5.

Curry dropped a 66-28 game to a winless Sipsey Valley team, Lynn was doubled up by Cold Springs, 68-34, Winston County outscored Carbon Hill 51-28 while Sumiton Christian dropped a 40-0 decision at Falkville.

ADDISON’S WINNING WAYS: In what was expected to be a region test for the fourth-ranked Bulldogs, Addison jumped on Appalachian with two first-quarter touchdowns and never looked back, earning a 48-0 win over the Eagles.

Addison, which avenged its two regular-season losses in the first two weeks of the season, has now outscored Southeastern, Shades Mountain and Appalachian 138-7 over the last three weeks.  

The Bulldogs are 5-0 for the second time in three years. Addison started 5-0 in 2011 before finishing 9-2. Addison is currently tied atop the Class 1A, Region 6 standings with Falkville. The teams will meet in a game that could determine the region champion at Falkville on Oct. 18.

ONE WINLESS TEAM LEFT: After Cordova’s blowout win over Parrish, Carbon Hill is the lone winless team remaining in the Eagle’s coverage area.

Carbon Hill, which held a 22-20 lead over Winston County in the second quarter, wavered down the stretch in a 51-28 loss to the Yellow Jackets. The defeat was the 15th straight loss for Carbon Hill dating to the final game of the 2011 football season.

Coach Rodney Dollar’s team has kept games close through three quarters only to have the opponent take advantage of a depleted Carbon Hill squad in the fourth quarter.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Bulldogs, who travel to top-ranked Calera this week.
