Petal Panthers were Petal Panties, temporarily

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - An act of vandalism at the brand new Petal High School football stadium late Friday night or early Saturday morning temporarily changed the name of the school's gridiron mascot from the "Panthers" to the "Panties." An unknown number of vandals spray-painted over two letters on the home side of the stadium, making the change.

Petal School District police say the paint was scrubbed off this morning. They are now investigating to find out who did it.

The Panther football team will play its first game ever in the new stadium Saturday night against South Panola.
