Hounds whip Hampton 48-7

The Greyhounds had a scare Friday night, but not on the scoreboard.

A week after being tested by Eagle's Landing, Jones County had no trouble with Hampton, never punting or turning the ball over as it swatted the Hornets 48-7 at home.

The scare came late in the first quarter when starting quarterback Teldrick Ross went down with a sprained ankle.

Coach Justin Rogers said that Ross could have returned if needed, and he should have plenty of time to recover before the next game since the Greyhounds are off next weekend.

"He was mad we wouldn't let him go back out there, but by the time they got him taped up, we were already up 22-0 so there was no need to risk him hurting it more."

Backup Hunter Costlow played well enough in his place, completing two touchdown passes.

Senior Drake Bolus also scored two touchdowns, one on a 42-yard scamper after catching a screen pass from Ross, and the other on a 25-yard run.

Semaj Ingram and Demontae Trawick also ran for touchdowns, and Josh Skinner kicked two field goals.

Jones County improves to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the region.

The Greyhounds host Union Grove for homecoming on Oct. 13.
