PASCAGOULA – The Enterprise Yellow Jackets suffered a disappointing 42-0 season opening defeat to the Resurrection Catholic Eagles Saturday night.

“We made too many mental mistakes,” said Enterprise coach Brooks Burns. “We did not come ready to play physically. Now, we must regroup and get ready for a tough rivalry game this week against Bogue Chitto.”

Senior running back Jackson Cole was the offensive leader for the Jackets (0-1) ground game with 14 carries for 25 yards.

In Enterprise aerial attack, Junior quarterback Austin Coleman was a perfect one-for-one in passing as he hooked up with senior wide receiver Jake Case for 20 yards.

Defensively, Cole directed the charge for the Jackets with 11 tackles. Case contributed 8 stops. James King provided 7 tackles.

Enterprise returns home to host the Bogue Chitto Bobcats (1-0) at Harry Cole Field for a Thursday night special.
