Pike County 21, Jackson 14:
ZEBULON — The Pike County High Pirates football team took a 21-14 halftime lead over the Jackson Red Devils and made that stand to get its first Region 2-AAA win last Friday night.
Pike (3-3 overall, 1-1 region) defeated Jackson (4-2, 1-1) in its Homecoming Game by sprinting to a big first-half lead. Jackson scored first to make the score 7-0, but Pirates quarterback Tyler Gregory tied the game at 7-all with a 12-yard touchdown run. Pike then recovered an on-side kick and scored again, this time on a 50-yard TD pass from Gregory to Jacob Adkins to lead 14-7. Pike recovered another on-side kick and wideout Darius Jordan caught a TD pass afterwards, giving Pike the 21-7 lead.
Jackson scored again late in the second quarter to cut the Pirates lead to 21-14 at the half.
Neither team made any headway in the second half. Pike stopped the Red Devils on two fourth-down attempts and Jordan and Donald Brown had an interception each late in regulation to seal the victory for the Pirates.
