Thursday Football Scores

Southwest Mississippi- 35 

Jones County- 42

Jones County Junior College pulled away in the second half to earn their second straight win, defeating Southwest Mississippi Community College 42-35 for its final home contest of the season. Tiger Powell lead the way for the bobcats (5-3, 2-3) who rushed for 140 yards and three touchdowns.

The bobcats scored on the first offensive play from scrimmage on a pass from quarterback Ben Stevens to Cortez Cooks.

With four minutes remaining in the half, it looked as if both teams would head back to the locker room tied at 21 all. But Jones scored 14 in the final four minutes to take a 35-21 lead heading into the half. The bobcats travel to Poplarville for the regular season finale next Thursday Oct. 27 to take on Pearl River.
