It’s been as close to a perfect start as you can get for the St. Martin Yellowjackets, who boast a 5-1 record on the season.
Following a 54-35 victory over Hancock last week, St. Martin is set to host Harrison Central for our WXXV Game of the Week.
The Yellowjackets offense has proven to be one of the more high powered attacks in the state, failing to score over 40 points in a game just once.
On the other side of the field, things are a little different with Harrison Central focusing more on their defense, who is allowing just 19 points per game.
St. Martin Head Coach Eddie Wayne Whitehead tells News 25 that it’s not only a big night for the Jackets, but for the district as a whole. “The kids know how big of a ballgame it is, we’re sitting here 1-1. They’re 1-1. You know Biloxi and O.S. they’re playing, they’re 1-1. So you know these two games tomorrow night are going to be pretty big.”
For highlights and scores from across the Coast, tune in tomorrow night for the ‘News 25 Friday Night Showcase.’
