HolmesCountyclosed within 28-14 with Jacky Miles’ 1-yard touchdown run with 10½ minutes left in the contest. Russ added a two-point conversion.

A fumble by the Tiger Sharks set up Holmes County’s third touchdown, a 1-yard scramble by Ty Russ that trimmed his team’s deficit to 28-20 with 3 minutes remaining. Russ missed the extra point, however, and PSJ recovered the ensuing onside kick and drained the clock.

HolmesCounty got the ball back at its own 27 after a Davis’ fumble with 48 seconds left in the game. The Blue Devils advanced the ball to the PSJ 42 before Miles was sacked as time expired. That was the fifth sack of the night for the PSJ defense.

Miles came into the game the area’s leading passer, but he was held to 3-for-7 passing for 13 yards and an interception. Similarly, Kodi Russ entered as the area’s top rusher, but he was largely corralled and finished with 110 yards on 20 rushes. Ty Russ completed all six pass attempts for 74 yards in the second half.
