It took just 18 seconds for the Williams-Sullivan Yellow Jackets to find the end zone, and by the end of the first quarter, WSHS led McAdams 30-0.
The Jackets led 36-0 at the half and cruised to a 42-6 victory.
The scoring started for the Jackets on a 66-yard touchdown run by Dewery Davenport with 11:42 remaining in the first quarter.
The kick failed after the Dewery Davenport touchdown, but shortly thereafter Dexter Davenport found pay dirt with a 15 yard touchdown run of his own, to increase the lead to 14-0 after a successful two-point conversion attempt.
George Foster found the end zone again for the Jackets to increase the lead to 22-0 after a successful conversion, and a 40-yard touchdown pass followed this from Dewery Montgomery to Willie Marshall on their next possession.
The two-point conversion attempt was good and the first quarter came to a close shortly thereafter.
The Jackets tacked on another touchdown late in the second quarter on a 39-yard punt return by Terrance Griffin, but the conversion failed, pushing the score to 36-0 at the half. The Bulldogs found the end zone early in the third quarter on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Justine Malone to Kaderius Malone, but the kick failed and they trailed 36-6.
That would cap the scoring for the Bulldogs, but the Jackets added one more score on a one-yard run by Chris Young late in the fourth quarter, increasing the lead to 42-6 after the conversion failed.
“The Bulldogs were really young, but they played hard,” said WSHS head coach Willie McMillon. “I’m proud of our effort, but it’s time to prepare for another home game with St. Andrews next week.”
The Yellow Jackets will host St. Andrews at 7:30 Friday night.
“We settled down and played better in the second half,” said McAdams head coach Kenneth Nelson. “I saw a lot of bright spots, including our freshman and first year quarterback Justin Malone playing well and gaining experience. I believe the sky is the limit for them.”
The Bulldogs will host East Oktibbeha this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
