HATTIESBURG – It hasn’t happened since 1967, but redshirt senior Kelsey Douglas did it Saturday afternoon against the Charlotte 49ers. Douglas returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a 66-21 win for the Golden Eagles, and the last time that happened for USM was Nov.
I’m not breaking any news here, but the Hattiesburg Tigers are good. So good, they’re now the clear favorite to win the 5A South and take a trip to Oxford for the state championship. There’s still a long way to go, though, but a record of 9-0 overall and 5-0 in Region 4-5A speaks for itself.
ELLISVILLE – The battle of NJCAA Top 10 teams lived up to its billing here on a wonderful Homecoming Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Stadium/Sim Cooley Field.
The 10th-ranked Jones County Junior College Bobcats used a clutch fake punt and prevailed over the No. 4 Hinds Eagles 41-36 in an entertaining MACJC contest.
