The Whippets traveled to Macon last Friday night to take on the Noxubee Tigers and lost the contest 29-0.
The Whippets are now 2-5 overall and 0-1 in Region 4-4A play.
The game was scoreless until midway through the second quarter when Noxubee was finally able to punch one in to go up 8-0 at the half.
After the Tigers scored the Whippets were able to drive the ball to the Tiger 30 yard line but could not convert a fourth down play, and Noxubee took an 8-0 lead into the half.
“It was a really tough ballgame and the guys played inspired,” said Whippet head coach Tyler Peterson.
“We battled tooth-and-nail during the first half.”
The Tigers scored three touchdowns in the second half, and proved their lofty ranking was worthy, and were able to preserve the shutout as well.
“I made a couple of poor decisions in the second half and we also threw a pick six and had a blocked punt that allowed them to pull away,” added Peterson. “Our guys definitely see where we are and where we’re going, there are a lot of positives we can take away from that ballgame.”
Offensively, quarterbacks Rajheem Jamison, who completed three of five passes for 36 yards and an interception, and Tim Wade, who completed two of 10 passes for 14 yards and a pick as well, led the Whippets.
Jabri Selmon led the Whippets on the ground with 69 yards on 22 carries and he caught four balls for 22 yards as well.
Deavolon Edwards had 13 yards on three carries and Jamari Roby rounded out the Kosy offense by hauling in two passes for 28 yards.
Defensively, Kendric Riley led the Whippets with 7.5 tackles; Orlando Hill with 6.5 tackles while Harrison Griffin and Corey Lowe each had four tackles each.
Hill and Griffin each collected fumbles as well.
The Whippets will host Region 4-4A rival Louisville Friday night at 7 p.m. and Peterson remarked on that contest, “Louisville is a contender nearly every year and we are excited to get out there and see what we can do against them. This is a big swing game for us, and if we win this one we will put ourselves in a pretty good position.”
