JCJC downs PRCC 39-34 in annual 'Catfight'

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

It looked more like a game more fit for the baseball diamond at the start of things, but Jones County Junior College started put points up, and Pearl River Community College simply couldn't keep up. The Bobcats left Poplarville with a 39-34 win over their arch-rival Wildcats in the 82nd annual 'Catfight.'

After allowing a safety and trailing 3-2 in the first quarter, PRCC (1-2, 1-0) responded. Mississippi State transfer quarterback Dylan Favre showed off his ground game, powering through and bouncing off several defenders for a 16-yard rushing touchdown that gave his team a 10-6 halftime lead.

With under ten minutes to play in the ball game, the home team found themselves out of it. The visiting Bobcats (2-1, 1-0) outscored their rivals 22-3 though the third and into the fourth quarter, and won their third of the last four meetings with the Wildcats in the series.

JCJC returns to Ellisville for a Saturday night matchup with Mississippi Gulf coast on Sept. 22, while PRCC will host Coahoma Sept. 20.
