NATCHEZ — Adams County Christian School left five points on the field in a crucial MAIS 5A district game Friday night. A couple of two point conversions and a missed extra point was the difference in the 28-26 loss to Parklane Academy.
ACCS is now 2-2 in district play and 5-3 overall. It was a heartbreaking loss at home as the Rebels had a late drive going down the field starting at the 5 yard line. However, at the 50 yard line the Rebels turned the ball over on downs and Parklane could kill the clock.
