JACKSON — The Greenville-Weston football team won three games all last season. After a 18-6 win Friday night over Murrah, the Hornets have equaled that marked, improving to 3-2 on the season.
For the second time this season, GWHS running back Donald Jackson ran for over 100 yards. The junior ran for 158 yards and two touchdowns to help the Hornets secure a district victory. GWHS is now 1-0 in their district, tied with Madison Central, Northwest Rankin and Grenada, who defeated Vicksburg Friday night.
A 65-yard kickoff return by Donnell Corbin set up Greenville's other touchdown — Juwan Brady returned a fumble for a 10-yard score.
GWHS returns home Friday night — after three road trips — when they face district foe Warren Central.

Washington 49, Lee Aca. 13
CLARKSDALE — After falling short in their first three games of the season, it seems the Washington School Generals have found the spark they were searching for. Washington (3-3) used 42 first half points — including 28 in the second quarter — to crush Lee Academy Friday night 49-13.
The Generals used two kick return touchdowns — an 88-yarder by Andrew Steinle and a 90-yarder by Dylan Elkins — to take some of the pressure off the offense.
However, Washington's offensive weapons, especially running back Ryan Gober, were in working order. Gober had two touchdowns on the night (5, 50 yards).
Washington's other touchdowns came from a 11-yard pass from Eric Brozovich to Hayden Lewis, a 2-yard run by Read Kelly and a 10-yard scamper by Lea Turner.
Washington will travel to Starkville Academy Friday night. SA broke their 20-game losing streak Friday night after beating Winston Academy 31-29.
