GOODMAN – Holmes Community College used a devastating ground attack and timely passing to hand Pearl River its first defeat of the season 34-14 at Ras Branch Stadium.
The Bulldogs (1-1) ran the ball 69 times for 368 yards, and added 182 yards in passing.
Holmes set the tone from the opening kickoff, driving for a touchdown. PRCC took a brief 7-6 lead on a 57-yard touchown pass from Mack Lowrie to Cameron Bolton, then got a fumble inside the Holmes 10-yard line.
However, the Wildcats failed to score and a 22-yard field goal attempt was wide right. The Bulldogs took the ensuing kickoff and regained the lead on a 60-yard pass play from Dejerric Bryant to D.J. Montgomery.
Holmes led 20-7 at halftime and dominated the second half.
The Wildcats were held to 16 total yards rushing, and Lowrie was sacked five times for 42 yards in losses.
