DeeDee Brown

Walnut Grove running back DeeDee Brown (5) fights for yardage up the middle against the Jackson County defense in first quarter action.

Walnut Grove could move the ball between the 20s, but the Warriors could never hit pay dirt against Jackson County.

The result was a 20-0 loss to the Panthers on the road Friday night.

It took to the second quarter before anyone got on the board when Jackson County’s Tra Ransom punched in a score on a six-yard run. The PAT gave the Panthers a 7-0 lead with 10:21 to go in the half.

That’s all the scoring either team would do until the fourth quarter when Jackson County quarterback Isiah Maxey hit receiver Anthony Finley on a 24-yard touchdown strike at the 6:02 mark. The point after was good to put the Panthers up 14-0.

With just over two minutes left in the game, Maxey would finish off the scoring for the night with a touchdown run from 11 yards out. The point after was no good, resulting in the 20-0 final.

The loss moves Walnut Grove to 1-3 on the year and 0-1 in Region 8-AAAAA.

The Warriors will be at home against Greenbrier in next week’s action.
