SEMINARY, MS (WDAM) -

At 5-6, Seminary entered the class 3A playoffs as a No. 4 seed.

The Bulldogs evened their record and advanced the second round after knocking off one-seeded Velma Jackson 21-20 on the road.

"It was a battle," said Seminary head coach Brian Rials. "Tied at halftime, 14-14. They scored to take the lead in the second half, we block the extra point. Get a big turnover, go down and score and make the extra point. It was an exciting game."

Seminary hosts Port Gibson (8-3) on Friday night, hoping to ride its momentum into the second round.

"The season wasn't exactly the record we wanted but right now everybody that's still in it is 1-0 after the first round," Rials said. "Everybody's even, you can throw the records out. They're a No. 2 seed, Port Gibson, coming in here but we've played pretty good at home this year and we feel like we have a chance to give them some problems."

"We all just have to practice hard this week," said Seminary senior nose guard Qvaius Currie. "Stay on everybody, make sure everybody focused and just have a good practice."
