The Biloxi Indians put themselves squarely in the postseason hunt Friday night with a big win in Lucedale.
Junior Brodie King threw for two touchdowns and ran for one more as Biloxi topped George County 38-21 . King filled in at quarterback for Tucker Thomas, who sat out the game with a deep thigh bruise.
Very little was expected of the Indians to start the season, but they are now 5-4 overall and 3-2 in Region 4-6A.
“Every win for us is big,” Biloxi coach Bobby Hall said. “Tonight, the best team won. Our kids just played good.
Never miss a local story.
“We've been playing this way ever since the second half of the Harrison Central game.”
King's two touchdown passes were a 50-yarder to De'angelo Mayers and a 32-yarder to Tim Jones. His touchdown run was from 31 yards out.
Nick Ross also had a one-yard touchdown run for Biloxi and Kevin Martinez kicked a 42-yard field goal to give the Indians a 10-7 lead at halftime.
Biloxi also got a score from the defense when senior safety Tyler Price intercepted a pass and ran it back 58 yards for a touchdown.
George County, which had a three-game win streak come to an end, dropped to 5-4 and 3-2.
