SENATOBIA — Freshman Derrell Lovelady’s first career touchdown pass couldn’t have come at a better time for the No. 11 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers.
Lovelady’s 7-yard touchdown catch with 44 seconds left in Saturday’s homecoming game lifted the Rangers to a 40-31 win over No. 18 Jones at Bobby Franklin Field.
The win over Jones marked the first since the 2001 season, with the Bobcats taking the previous three meetings and leading the all-time series 28-16.
Northwest closed out its 2012 home slate with a perfect 4-0 mark and improved to 7-1 overall. Jones’ season came to a close at 6-3. (October 29, 2012, Page 4B)
