South Jones hosts Laurel in Jones County battle

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - South Jones (3-2) enters region play against Laurel on Friday, riding a three-game win streak.

Laurel (1-3) comes off a bye week after three straight losses to Hattiesburg, Oak Grove and Petal, respectively.

Something’s got to give on Friday night in Ellisville.

“[South Jones is] doing some things offensively that can give you some problems,” said Laurel head coach Todd Breland. “Running the option is something you don’t see a whole lot of so it’s difficult to prepare for. South has had some success in the past few weeks. They got a lot of confidence and it’s homecoming so it will be a challenge to go over there.” “We always get up and play good against Laurel,” said first-year South Jones head coach Roger Satcher. “We just gotta focus and stay the course and play the whole game. Like I tell our kids, ‘When things go wrong, so what?’”
