HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - It had been a few years since the Hattiesburg Tigers got past the first round of the playoffs, and that all ended Friday night as they treated fans to a 42-14 win over Brookhaven.

Up next is a matchup with Laurel, a team the Tigers beat in August.

A touchdown run from Julian Conner gave Hattiesburg its first points. This was followed by a touchdown run from Jarod Conner

The Tigers took a 21-7 lead at the half thanks to an acrobatic touchdown snag from Jordan Murphy.

Conner does it himself for the touchdown, 7-0 in the first.
