Here are your Jones County Week 14 predictions as picked by James Pugh.

Picayune at Laurel

This is where the real challenge starts. 

Picayune is no Wayne County, and as a matter of fact, Picayune destroyed the War Eagles 60-33 during the regular season. Laurel’s new playoff opponent is a real contender.

Picayune is probably the only team to have at least held a lead against Hattiesburg this season, although that lead was lost and eventually the game. 

R.H. Watkins Stadium will be rocking Friday night, but probably not for long.

Prediction: Picayune 35, Laurel 28.

Hattiesburg at West Jones

Scott Pierson said it perfectly this week: “we only have to beat Hattiesburg once.”

I expected West Jones to play their best game of the season Friday night, but quickly finding out it won’t be enough. No one is knocking off Hattiesburg this year. 

Prediction: Hattiesburg 35, West Jones 3.
