NOXAPATER – Starkville Academy knew it was going to have its hands full on Friday night with a fast and physical Noxapater team that has been running wild against opponents this season.

The Volunteers headed southward trying to do what nobody had successfully done so far this year – bottle up the Tigers. Starkville Academy proved to be up for the challenge.

The Vols put a stranglehold on Noxapater’s run-heavy attack and Starkville Academy earned a hard-fought 22-7 road victory.
