Starkville Daily News - - SCORE­CARD -

up sig­nif­i­cantly. If Clin­ton and Southaven threat­ened to up­end Starkville, what could a 9-2 Horn Lake team do?

Starkville finds it­self in a bit of a dilemma. The Jack­ets have to be pleased with them­selves for still be­ing a part of the play­offs. How­ever they can't af­ford to be satisfied, be­cause right now, Starkville seems to be hang­ing on by a thread.

The Jack­ets can take com­fort in this. They have a full week of prac­tice ahead to try and get things turned around and get back to the dominant style of foot­ball they were play­ing mid­sea­son.

Jones is de­ter­mined to re­light his team's fuse and reignite Starkville's ti­tle dreams.

“We're not where we want to be, but we're mov­ing on to the sec­ond round,” Jones said. “We've got the chance to fix some stuff and get bet­ter. No com­plaints I don't guess. We're still in it and we still have a chance to win it. We have to fix some stuff, but we'll find a way.”
