The Greyhounds were rolling. A gutsy call to go for it on fourth-and-3 at the Mary Persons 37 on their opening drive was followed up with a 50-yard halfback pass from Jo Jo Gibbons to Jared Johnson to set up their first touchdown, a 1-yard run by Undre Williams.

Then the Bulldogs faked a punt on fourth down and failed, and all of a sudden the Greyhounds were starting a drive deep in Mary Persons territory with the prospects of building a big lead.

But just as quickly, the momentum shifted with a fumble and long return for a touchdown by the Bulldogs, and soon Jones County found itself playing catch-up.

And in the end, the Bulldogs came up with more big plays than the Greyhounds to secure a 25-21 victory, dropping Jones County to 1-1 on the season.

“We told the kids after beating Alcovy that we had to keep improving to win again. In some ways we improved, but in others we took a step back, and it cost us,” Jones County coach Dwight Jones said. “We told them we had to be physical and play with focus and concentration. I thought we were physical, but we didn’t come through with the focus and concentration enough. We made way too many mistakes.”
