LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

The Laurel tornadoes made a stunning comeback against Picayune in their quest to another state championship. 

Laurel trailed for most of the first and second quarters Picayune leading 27-10 at halftime. 

Laurel's defense made a triumphant return in the third quarter, allowing the team to regain the lead with two plays in the third quarter. 

With just six minutes left in the fourth quarter Laurel blocked Picayune's punt to recover the ball. Ulmer threw to Jones for another touchdown, bringing the tornadoes to a 45-27 lead. 

Ultimately the tornadoes would take the game with that score, now edging close enough to taste the state championship.
