North Panola sponsored a jamboree with three other teams Tuesday evening. Byhalia, Coldwater and Coahoma County came to town for some serious spring football action.
The team’s games consisted of two 15 minute halfs.
Coahoma County and Coldwater tangled in the first scrimmage match. Coahoma won that match up 6-0.
Next North Panola tangled with Byhalia which was in its second year of existence. North Panola had very little trouble with the Indians and won 22-6.
Both teams had its share of fumbles, but North Panola took the brunt of penalty flags.
North Panola converted its first fumble recovery to a 29 yard touchdown reception by Jarrell Lantern. With the two point conversion, North Panola led 8-0.
Vonketrick Reed recovered another Indian fumble and the Cougars went on to score on a one yard run by quarterback Robert Glover. The two-point conversion failed.
On the Cougars’ next possession, backup quarterback Albert Johnson completed a 70-yard touchdown pass to Travis Howard. With the two-point conversion the Cougars had their 22-0 lead.
The Cougars had their hands full with Coahoma County in the second game. Penalties again hurt the Cougars as they were marched back up the field further and further from the goal line.
Coahoma scored first on a nine yard run, but the Cougars stopped the two-point conversion which ended up being a good thing.
The Cougars got their payback on a 45 yard touchdown reception from quarterback Robert Glover to Lantern. North Panola’s two-point conversion failed.
At this point, the weather turned and brought thunder and lightning. The game was called while the two teams were tied 6-6.
