The Greyhounds find themselves in a familiar situation this Friday night, needing to rebound from a loss to Warner Robins by beating Evans in a homecoming game to remain in contention for a state playoff berth.

But there are some differences.

Last year, Jones County looked awful against the Demons, who scored the first four times they had the ball on the way to a 35-7 victory in Warner Robins.

This year, the Greyhounds led 8-7 at halftime at home and even managed to bounce back after an early score by the Demons in the third quarter to regain the lead briefly, 14-13, before the sixth-ranked visitors hit on several big plays to pull away for a 34-14 victory.

Now the Greyhounds find themselves at 3-2 overall and 1-1 in Region 2-AAAAA play – the same record they had at this point last season – again needing to beat Evans to keep in the running for one of the region’s four state playoff berths.

Last year Jones County spoiled Evans’ homecoming with a 41-6 victory in which the Greyhounds rushed for 521 yards.
