ACCS falls in both games of jamboree

GALLMAN — Adams County Christian fans are likely left hoping for better results in the regular season than they got Thursday afternoon in the Copiah Academy Jamboree.

In its first game, ACCS was plagued by turnovers and missed tackles by its defense in a 21-0 loss to River Oaks. The Rebels played better in their second game yet still fell to East Rankin 14-8.

Each game at the jamboree was played with a 25-minute running clock, but the final five minutes was run like a game.

As for how the Rebels fared against River Oaks, head coach Paul Hayles said, “We had some self-inflicted wounds against a really good ball club. We had turnovers. We missed some receivers. We missed some blocks.”

In the second game, East Rankin was already ahead 8-0 when the Patriots went for a field goal. But a penalty was called against the Patriots and the Rebels accepted the penalty, putting them out of field goal range.

On the very next play, East Rankin scored on a long touchdown to put the Patriots up 14-0. ACCS responded with a 65-yard touchdown pass from Kent Yates to Corey Emanuel. The Patriots ran the clock out to end the game.

“The second game, the offense was much more ball-controlled. We still missed too many blocks. We still missed some opportunities,” Hayles said.

As for how the Rebels’ defense performed, Hayles said, “Early on, not very well. In the second game, we started showing signs of life. We’ve got so many new players at new positions. But I’m not making any excuses.”

ACCS begins its regular season next Friday, hosting CENLA Christian at 7 p.m.
