It was a great first quarter for the Starkville Yellow Jackets against Germantown last Friday night.
The last three quarters – not so much.
Granted the Jackets were shuffling players in and out in the second, third and fourth quarters of the 27-0 homecoming win over the Mavericks, it still did not look like the team that had gotten off to such a quick start. The offense couldn’t finish drives and the defense seemed to get a little soft in its coverage on the short routes of Germantown’s passing game despite the shutout.
