HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

It had been a season of firsts for the PCS Bobcats and it was their first loss that ended the historic season.

Jackson Prep (12-1) knocked off PCS (11-1) 24-21 in the MAIS AAAA Semifinals on Friday night in what was a rematch of an October contest. The Bobcats won the first meeting 28-16 in Jackson before the Patriots returned the favor in PCS’ first home playoff game in school history.

The Patriots jumped on the board first when Jerrion Ealy took a screen pass from Chance Lovertich 70-plus yards for a touchdown.

Bobcat senior quarterback responded with a long pass to Brandon Thornton which set up a short touchdown run by senior running back Isaiah Woullard to knot things at 7-7.

In the second quarter, Jackson Prep pulled out a flea-flicker, as Lovertich found Tate Fowler near the goal line setting up Ealy’s dive over the end zone to make it 14-7 Patriots. Jackson Prep would score 10 points in the third quarter to break the lead open and never looked back in its 24-21 road playoff victory.

Woullard would do his best to keep PCS in it, carrying the ball 40 times for 265 yards and three touchdowns including an 85-yard score to make it a 14-14 game at halftime.

Early in the third quarter, Woullard became Mississippi’s all-time leading rusher with a 12-yard run, surpassing the previous record of 8,254 career yards held by Ruleville Central’s Noah Ingram. Woullard now stands at 8,333 career rushing yards.
