Every football fan, player, or coach always wants their money's worth for a football game. There was no doubt that the game Friday night at Tank Williams Field in Bay St. Louis provided that opportunity.
The hosting Bay High Tigers lost their fourth consecutive game 40-37 to the Lawrence County Cougars, rallying from a 26-0 depth at halftime, to be inched out on the last play in overtime.
Bay High Coach Ben Foreman said that “the only regret that I told our kids is that we only played two quarters instead of four.”
The last play of the game resulted in Lawrence County pulling down a tipped pass to Kendarious Feazall from Tigers’ stellar athlete Jaylan Wilson.
Foreman said, “I would take Jaylan over anyone in a matchup and it just didn't go our way.” Sep 9, 2017, 00:54

Yellow Jackets sting SSC 9-7 The St. Martin Yellow Jackets outlasted the St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws on Friday night in Jackson County 9-7 and missed opportunities defined the loss.
SSC head coach Jeff Jordan commented, "Dropped balls, backs not hitting the holes hard enough, missed blocks, and errant throws caused us efficiency problems on offense all game. Our defense played well enough to win. Our special teams played with one exception. Our execution on offense just wasn't there. You want to win every game but this loss does not hurt our mission but it does hurt our gut. We had our chances to win and we should have."
The Rock defense stepped up on the opening possession of the game and forced a punt.
SSC started with a 27-yard pass from Jake Greer to Thomas Williams. Five plays later, Greer went to Harrison Brewer for a gain of 20 yards. Sep 9, 2017, 00:52
