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.

    Since the EF-3 tornado landed last year, William Carey University has spent the entire year working to rebuild their campus. “The feeling that we couldn't recover was pretty widespread but they didn't know our students, faculty and employees and our determination,” says President Dr. Tommy King. William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."

    The campus of William Carey was calm as the clock struck midnight and the date turned to January 21, 2017. Then-freshman soccer player Taylor Gautreaux turned in at about 1 a.m. She would be awoken two hours later to the sounds of a violent tornado just outside her dorm room wall.
