Byrd Yellow Jackets wrapped up the Battle on the Border showcase with a  28-19 victory over the Moss Point (Mississippi) Tigers at Independence Stadium on Saturday night.  

The Jackets were led by senior running back Jalin Thomas who compiled 173 all-purpose yards, which included 107 rushing and 66 punt return yards. 

Thomas dashed for three touchdowns.  

Byrd coach Mike Suggs likes the turn around from last season and the win was against a solid opponent. 

“It’s like I told the players,'' Suggs said, "any win is a good win and especially since we got off to a bad start and were terrible in this game last year.” 

Suggs wants to see improvement on the little things.
