PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

Petal fumbled the opening kickoff of the 6A South State Title and was never able to recover as Pearl ended the Panthers season with a 24-3 win on Friday night.

Later in the first quarter, Pearl’s Willie Brown returned an interception to the end zone and the Pirates led 14-0.

Panther junior Blake Craig would kick a field goal in the second quarter to cut the lead to 14-3 but that would prove to be the only Petal points of the game.

Petal head coach Marcus Boyles and his squad finish the 2016 season with a 9-5 record.
