NEW AUGUSTA, MS (WDAM) -

Perry Central’s theme in 2016 is to be relentless. That’s exactly what the Bulldogs were in their 48-6 win over rival Richton on Friday night.

Perry Central scored 19 unanswered points to begin the game, facilitating the ball to three different running backs for touchdowns: Senior George Bolton, and juniors Chris Sumrall and Mckail Sumrall.

The Rebels were able to get on the board after a bizarre play put them inside the red zone.

Richton junior running back Daylen Jones received a lateral pass that bounced and was kicked by Jones, causing most of the players on the field to stop all together.

Jones would scoop the ball up and dart down the sidelines before being tackled inside the 20-yard line.

A few plays later, Richton junior running back Rondarius Smith punched it in the end zone for what would be the Rebels only points of the game.

Perry Central would score again right before the half and roll in the second, winning 48-6 and improving to 2-1.

Perry Central (2-1) travels to Resurrection Catholic (2-1) next week, while Richton (0-3) hosts Bay High School (0-3).
