Gulf Coast improves to 3-0, tops Hinds 41-34

RAYMOND, Miss. (MGCCC) - In an early season heavyweight bout between two NJCAA top 10 teams, No. 1 Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College delivered just enough punishment to earn a 41-34 victory over No. 8 Hinds.

It's the ninth straight victory by the Bulldogs over Hinds dating back to 2005. More importantly, the win puts the Bulldogs at 3-0 overall in the MACJC South Division opener while the Eagles fall to 2-1.

"That was a complete team victory," said Gulf Coast head coach Steve Campbell, who's now 9-1 all-time against Hinds. "It took all three phases -- offense, defense, and special teams -- to get past a very talented Hinds team tonight."

The Bulldogs offense rushed for 335 yards -- 150 of those coming from sophomore running back Antwon Wells, who carried 22 times and scored three touchdowns.

Freshman quarterback Terrian Page rushed for 69 yards and two scores while kicker Tristan Reynolds booted two field goals.

The Gulf Coast defense forced two turnovers and held Hinds dual-threat quarterback James Summers to 49 yards rushing and 1 TD. Summers did throw two TD passes to Keithon Redding with 1:58 remaining in the game to make the score 41-34. Moments later, the Bulldogs recovered an onside kick to ice the win.

"We had guys making big plays tonight when we absolutely needed them," Campbell said.

Gulf Coast returns to action Thu., Sept. 19, at home against MACJC South Division rival Jones.
