JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Kameron Myers ran for 140 yards and scored two first-half touchdowns to lead Charleston to a 34-8 victory over Hazlehurst in the Mississippi High School Athletics Association 3A state championship on Saturday.

Charleston (14-2) led 14-0 at halftime, but a 25-yard Freddie Nelson touchdown run and a Demetrius Cain 2-point conversion pulled Hazlehurst (13-2) within 14-8 early in the third.

Charleston scored a pair of third-quarter touchdowns, one on a 3-yard direct snap to running back Percy O'Bannon and the other on a 75-yard run by quarterback Antwan Wilson. Wilson scored another 38-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and finished with 123 rushing yards.

Charleston lost to Hazlehurst in the 2005 state championship. Hazlehurst finished the game with minus-5 passing yards.
