Terry prevented George County from scoring on offense in a 23-7 victory for the Bulldogs Friday night.

George County sophomore defensive lineman McKinnley Jackson provided the lone score for George County, picking up a fumble and returning it to the end zone to tie the game at 7-7 with 11:38 left in the second quarter.

A pair of touchdown tosses to senior receiver Josh Perkins and a field goal gave Terry the 16-7 lead at the half.

Terry tacked on a fourth-quarter touchdown to put the game out of reach for the Rebels.

Terry improved to 7-3 overall and 3-2 in Region 3-6A. George County dropped to 2-8 and 1-4.

George County will travel to Meridian next week.
