It was amazing to see what the Starkville Yellow Jackets and Starkville Academy Volunteers pulled off in football last Friday night.
Both were involved in very important games as the Vols were competing in a first round game of the MAIS Class AAAAA playoffs at Magnolia Heights School and the Jackets were involved in a key Class 6A, Region 2 game at Warren Central.
SHS and Starkville Academy both trailed at halftime. At that point of the game, it did not seem that either was going to be able to win.
When considering the Vols, they fell behind 30-7 in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs and were having a difficult time getting anything going. Starkville Academy stormed back with 28 points in the fourth quarter and ended up winning a 35-30 decision.
