Jemison’s playoff hopes ended with Friday’s 54-45 loss at Greene County.

The visiting Panthers fell behind 24-0, tied the game by halftime, took a 32-24 lead in the second half but then couldn’t hang on.

Jemison entered the game with a chance to make the playoffs—even after their chances appeared ended with last week’s loss to Sumter Central—because Sumter Central was forced to forfeit games for playing an ineligible player in four contests earlier in the season.

An 80-yard punt return for a touchdown was Jemison’s first score and sparked the Panthers.

Tre Bryant scored on a 1-yard run, passed 43 yards to Randy Satterfield and then scored on a 2-yard run to tie the game.

Bryant completed 15 passes in 29 attempts on the night for 218 yards. His favorite target was Hubbard, who had seven catches for 129 yards.

Randy Satterfield caught four passes for 72 yards.

Javae Swindle’s 5-yard run early in the second half gave JHS (5-4 overall, 3-4 region) the lead.

Swindle also had a 1-yard touchdown run. He rushed 36 times for 178 yards.

Jemison’s last score was a 15-yard pass from Bryant to Hubbard. Bryant hit Satterfield for a 2-point conversion.

Madison Bolton paced the Jemison defense with 15 tackles, including five for a loss.

Raquane Jones recorded four sacks.
