Williamsburg pulls off a come-from-behind victory

The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets (7-2) got off to a rough start but got going in the second half and scored 22 unanswered points to pull off a 22-14 victory over Perry Central.

The Jackets' high-powered offense was not in sync during the first half as an interception, and a fumble led to two touchdowns by Perry Central as Williamsburg found themselves trailing 14-0 with 9:23 remaining in the first half of play.

Williamsburg's Jordan Perkins sparked the Jackets' defense and managed to turn the momentum in the third quarter as he intercepted a pass. Sydney Bowen followed with an 84-yard touchdown run to tighten the gap at 14-6 with nearly 11 minutes remaining in the quarter.

The Jacket defense struck again as Nate Goodin hauled in an interception. This time, Bowen turned it into a 32-yard touchdown pass to Goodin to tie the score at 14-14 early in the fourth quarter.

With just 1:24 remaining to play and the score still tied, Bowen found paydirt on a five-yard touchdown run. He also added the two-point conversion to seal the victory.

The Jackets will start the Class A Playoffs with a bye next week.
