PARKERS CHAPEL - Caleb Jacobs threw four touchdown passes and ran for another, as Parkers Chapel overcame a 20-14 deficit at intermission to top Lafayette County 35-26 Friday night at Victor Nipper Stadium.

After opening their season with a 26-21 setback to Fouke in the Hooten’s Kickoff Classic, the Trojans (1-1) found themselves trailing at halftime, but two big plays from Parkers Chapel’s offense swung the game’s momentum in their favor.

Early in the third quarter, Jacobs hooked up with Preston Stivender on a 50-yard strike that coupled with Stivender’s extra point, gave the Trojans a 21-20 lead.

Later in the stanza, Jacobs connected with Amari Bell on an 80-yard touchdown.

A junior, Jacobs also scored on a 9-yard run in the second half.

In the first half, the Trojans’ defense was responsible for their first points, as Ryan Simpson registered a sack in the end zone for a safety.

Jacobs then threw the first two of his four scores.

The junior first found Grayson Hurst on a 15-yard collaboration before finding Bell on a 4-yard score.

Stivender was a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points in the game.

After falling to Prescott in their season opener last week, the Cougars fall to 0-2 on the young season.

Parkers Chapel hits the road for a showdown with Foreman, the defending 2A state champions next week.
