Indians rout Panthers in annual Y-game
Desperate to erase a zero off the scoreboard late in the ballgame, Yazoo County fumbled the football on a fourth and goal; it was the only turnover that didn’t result in any points.
Yazoo City (2-2) won their fourth consecutive Y-Game Friday, blanking the Panthers 40-0 at the Swamp. It was the largest margin of victory between the two teams since the trophy was presented.
The Panthers had four turnovers on the night; including three in the first quarter which led to 19 points as Yazoo County remain winless on the season.
“I wasn’t expecting that, but in the course of a game you just have to capitalize off turnovers,” Yazoo City head coach Tony Woolfolk said. “It’s always nice to get a win.”
Yazoo County looked to jump the gun with an onside kick that failed to go ten yards giving the Indians good field position to start their first drive which led to a six yard touchdown run by Tre Richardson.
“We didn’t play well as a team collectively,” Panthers head coach Matt Williams said. “And when you do that against a sound team like Yazoo City, it’s tough on the taking, even more when it’s against your biggest rival.”
