Even though the Maroon Tide won, Head Coach Cody Stogner said it was a sloppy game on their part.

“We did a lot of good things and we did a lot of bad things,” said Stogner.

Even with sloppy plays, Picayune stayed ahead of Jefferson Davis County throughout the whole game.

On the other end, Jefferson Davis County’s quarterback Lyric Hall threw four touchdowns.


In this high scoring game neither team had trouble finding their way into the endzone.


“We’d get up by two scores then let them come back in to the game then we’d get up by two, score again but then let them come back. That was kind of how it went throughout the whole game,” said Stonger.


The Maroon tide will face Gulfport on the road this week on Sept. 10 with kickoff being at 7p.m.
