NATCHEZ — It was another rough showing for the Natchez High School Bulldogs as they were defeated by the Laurel High School Golden Tornadoes 42-14 Friday night at Tom F. Williams Memorial Stadium in MHSAA Region 3-5A action.

“It was the same old story,” Natchez High head coach Steven Davis Sr. said. “We’re not a physical team that can stop the run. Offensively, we’re shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties.”

Then he added, “We have some positives, but the negatives are out-weighing the positives. We’ve got a ways to go to play the type of ball we need to play to be competitive week in and week out.”
