The Bobcats trailed West Harrison in the fourth quarter on the road before junior quarterback Landon Hawkins led a game-winning drive in the waning minutes, tossing the go-ahead touchdown pass to give Sumrall a 27-21 win.
Purvis junior running back Moses Cummings’ 200-yard, four-touchdown performance on Friday didn’t just help Purvis beat Lumberton, it set the tone for what the Tornadoes hope is a very successful 2023 season.
