Natchez Falcons fall in title game 35-8

JACKSON — The Natchez Falcons A team ran into a much more experienced team in the Jackson Redskins in the Mississippi Youth Sports Association championship game Saturday night.

The Redskins went into the game undefeated and left as champions yet again as they defeated the Falcons 35-8 at Smith-Wills Stadium. The Falcons finished with a 10-2-1 record.

“It was our first year making the playoffs. We had a good season. The kids worked hard all year long,” coach Darryl Smith said. “We’re proud of them.”

Natchez’s only touchdown of the game came on an 8-yard pass from Christopher Scott to Maurice Thornburg Jr. Scott threw a 2-point conversion pass to Shavoke Herrington. But for the most part, the Redskins dominated the ball game.

“They’ve won it three years in a row. It was a learning process for us,” Smith said. “We’ll be ready for them next year.”
