Hinds football falls in final home game to Jones
 October 12, 2012

RAYMOND – The Hinds Community College football team was hoping to end the home portion of their 2012 schedule on a high note, but unfortunately the Jones County Junior College Bobcats had other ideas, defeating the Eagles of Hinds, 50-15, on Thursday night in Raymond.

Hinds fell to 3-4 overall and 1-4 in the South with the loss, and Jones improved to 5-2 overall and 4-1 in the South with the win.

The Bobcats took advantage of five Eagle turnovers on the night to lead to the runaway victory. Hinds fumbled four times and threw one interception.

Hinds finished with 278 yards of total offense (198 rushing, 80 passing), while Jones had 429 yards of total offense on the evening (283 rushing, 146 passing).

Darryan Ragsdale (Pelahatchie) led the way offensively for Hinds with nine carries for 83 yards. DJ Warren (Mendenhall) led the receiving corps with five catches for 57 yards.

The first points for Hinds came on a Rondrick Ragsdale (Sand Hill) safety in the first quarter to cut the Jones lead to 7-2 with 12:23 left.

Tyler Poe (Pearl) booted a 32-yard field goal in the third goal and a 45-yarder in the fourth quarter to finish with a total of seven points after his PAT in the second quarter.

The Poe point after came after an Anthony D’Angelo (Long Beach) TD pass to Quantavius Leslie (Hogansville, Ga.) five-yard touchdown strike with 9:29 left in the second frame, which accounted for all of the Eagles scoring on the evening.

Mitchell Hoskins (Port Gibson) was a standout on defense for the Eagles, finishing with seven tackles (four solos, three assists). Kenya Dennis (Leland) collected his second interception in as many weeks and had two solo tackles.

Jones was led by the rushing attack of Kalif Koen (six carries for 122 yards and two touchdowns) and Rueben Ducksworth, (15 carries for 78 yards and three touchdowns.)

The other Bobcat points came on an Ethan Hamilton to JaMichael Willis touchdown pass in the first quarter, a 47-yard interception return for a TD by Corey Trim late in the first quarter and a 44-yard field goal by Grant McLaurin early in the fourth quarter.

Hinds will step out of the South division next week, traveling to Goodman to face Holmes Community College for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
