Just before Christmas holidays, the Starkville Yellow Jackets had a setback against Pontotoc in the Tupelo Shootout.
The Warriors were a worthy opponent, but it was a game that the Jackets felt like they should have won. SHS has responded with four-straight wins, all by double digits, and the latest was a beat down of Class 6A, Region 3 foe South Panola.
The Jackets came out looking like a team on a mission at tipoff as they led 11-0 and blew past the Tigers 88-58. The starters played in the first and third quarters but spent most of the game on the bench while the younger players got their opportunities.
