With less than five minutes to go Yazoo County’s defense delivered a crucial stop, and the Cowboys responded with an excellent punt that pinned the Panthers back on theirown three yard line.
It was a perfectly executed special teams play, but time was running out, and it seemed the Panthers had a good chance of keeping the ball on the ground and maintaining the 14-12 lead.
