Here are your Jones County Week 13 predictions as picked by James Pugh.

Wayne County at Laurel

Here it is. 

After a two year sabbatical, former Region 3-5A rivals meet again. Wayne County travels to Laurel Friday night in the first round of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs. 

Don’t let the seeding fool you. If ever there was a four seed with a chance to knock off a one seed, its this matchup. Not saying it will happen, just saying there’s a chance. 

Prediction; Laurel 28, Wayne County 17. 

Stone at West Jones

This matchup didn’t bode well for West Jones in 2017. 

After making the playoffs for the first time last season since 2014, West Jones was a one-and-done in the first round of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs in 2017. Stone was the team to do it. 

Now, West Jones gets a chance at retribution. I say they get it. 

Prediction: West Jones 17, Stone 6.
