Jonesboro demolishes rival Nettleton

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT) - #6 Jonesboro (1-0) rolled over crosstown rival Nettleton (0-1) 44-6 Tuesday night at ASU Stadium.

About the only thing that went Nettleton's way on Tuesday night was the opening kickoff which they recovered in Jonesboro territory, after that it was Hurricanes all the way. The overmatched Raiders could only watch as Jonesboro raced out to a 28-0 lead only 7:17 seconds into the game, by halftime the Raiders were down 44-0 and the Golden Hurricane first string prepared to take a seat.

Nettleton who gave up a huge advantage to Jonesboro in personnel didn't score until the second half against the Jonesboro reserves.

With the victory Jonesboro moved to 5-1 in the Crosstown Showdown series. Jonesboro's next game will be next Friday at Wynne, while Nettleton will host Trumann next Friday.
