Murrah pulls away from Wingfield for season opener
Football season kicked off Thursday night for two of the Jackson Public School District’s schools. Playing on the South Jackson field located on the campus of Forest Hill High School, Murrah battled Wingfield. Battling nerves and humidity, both teams came out relatively flat. Fielding their way through the first half tied at 6. In the second half, more importantly, the 4th quarter, Murrah’s depth proved too much for Wingfield. Murrah scored 20 unanswered points to win, 26 to 6. The win was the first one as Head Coach for Marcus Gipson.
