Taking care of business: Jackets shut out Cougars 35-0 on homecoming

October 5, 2013

The Northwest Rankin Cougars were the homecoming opponent for the Starkville Yellowjackets Friday night and they came with gifts.
Northwest Rankin lost fumbles at the beginning of each half of play and Starkville took advantage of each situation to score points.
Quarterback Princeton Jones capped a five-play, 31-yard drive for the Jackets with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Raphael Leonard with 5 minutes remaining in the first quarter following the first fumble recovery, then Jones scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak with 7:59 left in the third quarter after the SHS defense forced another loose football.
The Jackets went on to defeat the Cougars 35-0.
"Turnovers should lead to points," SHS coach Jamie Mitchell said. "We just went about our business. We're 2-0 in the division and that's all that matters."
While getting their second win in Class 6A, Region 2, the Jackets also improved their overall record to 4-2.
