Wesson picked up huge road win last Friday, defeating the Hinds AHS War Dawgs 18-6. Two first half touchdowns sent the Cobras to the break with a 12-0 lead. Cobra WB Deon Pendleton caught the corner of the end zone in the first from 6 yards out. The second score was a 73 yard laser from quarterback Matt Smith to wide open WR D.J. Coleman. The third quarter saw Jeromy Smith reach paydirt to extend the Cobra lead to 18-6 and put the game away. From there the Cobra defense took the fight out of the War Dawgs.
