JEFFERSON — Lumpkin County’s early season road woes continued Friday night with a 35-7 loss to Jackson County.
On the opposite side of the score, Jackson County improved to 3-0 best ever since 2009.
After falling behind 7-0, Lumpkin tied the score on a Luke Smith four-yard run in the second quarter.
Noah Veneble rushed for 269 yards and three touchdowns as the Panthers rolled up 28-unanswered points to drop Lumpkin to 0-2.
Lumpkin will look to get things rolling Friday when it plays host to Madison County.
Jackson County travels to take on West Hall next week.
