ALICEVILLE  - The Winston County Yellow Jackets (2-4, 0-3) met up with another set of Jackets at Aliceville (5-1, 4-0) Friday night and got stung  39-0.
Aliceville got on the board late in the first quarter on a 12-yard pass to Matthew Clark.  Zavieon Hinton’s PAT was good, and Aliceville was up 7-0.
The home team would score twice more in the first half, on an 11-yard pass to Brandon Thomas and a 12-yard run by Thomas.  Winston County went into halftime down 19-0.

Aliceville would score three more times in the second half.  Deveren Wilkins got the first two scores on 36 and 6-yard runs, respectively, and Zavien Wilkins scored the final points of the game early in the fourth quarter, making the final score 39-0.
