PCS falls to Jackson Academy in season-opener

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Bobcats interception gave the ball back to Jackson Academy in their own territory with under six minutes to play, and Jackson Academy added an insurance touchdown to seal a 21-12 win.

Presbyterian Christian School struck first on a 15-yard touchdown run from Lee Sigrest to make it 6-0, but the Bobcats then surrendered a game-tying touchdown to Jackson Academy just before halftime. After falling into a 14-6 hole in the third quarter, the Bobcats managed to make it a two-point, 14-12 game.   That's as close as they would get.

PCS Head Football Coach Joey Hawkins raved about his team's speed heading into their season opener. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, a rain-soaked field possibly negated some that speed. Rain and lightning delayed the game, which was originally set to kick off at 7:00 pm, all the way until 9:15.
