ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - Steve Buckley said it felt like the longest week of all time.

But seven days after Jones College’s crushing loss at Hinds, the Bobcats bounced back with a 40-27 win over Southwest Mississippi Community College.

Jones put up 553 yards total offense in Summit on Thursday, led by Quaterius Hawkins' 299 yards passing and two touchdowns on 21-of-29 completions.

Collins grad Markel McLaurin hauled in quite a few of those passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. Freshman Romal Webb once again set the tone rushing with 167 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

Jones (2-1) hosts Pearl River Community College (1-2) for the annual “Catfight” on Thursday at 7 p.m.
