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.”
