LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Prior to Friday night’s kickoff, Laurel head coach Todd Breland challenged his team to put the city of Laurel on their backs following the tragic loss of student Zamerick Drummond.

With Drummond’s nickname “Teeh” painted throughout the stadium and across many of the players’ undershirts, the Golden Tornadoes rolled to a 49-14 win over South Jones between the bricks.

Laurel senior quarterback Tyquan Ulmer tossed for yards and five touchdowns, three of which went to senior wide receiver Je’vah Jones.

However, the Golden Tornadoes would strike first on the ground as sophomore running back Michael Terrell spun his way to an early 7-0 Laurel lead.

South Jones would make the score 7-6 with a pass-and-catch from senior quarterback Will Mitchell to junior Brandon Gordon which set up a short touchdown pass to junior tight end Kameron Flowers.

But after four consecutive touchdown passes behind the arm of Ulmer, Laurel headed into halftime with a 35-6 lead.

With the score 42-12 in the third quarter, Laurel senior Dontario Drummond sealed the Golden Tornadoes’ seventh consecutive win with a 73-yard kickoff return to the end zone.

Laurel (8-1) travels to Provine next week while South Jones (7-3) hosts Wayne County.
