The Vernon Yellow Jackets were handed their first loss of the season Tuesday night at Bonifay by the hosts Blue Devils. The Yellow Jackets struggled early in the game being outscored and outrebounded by the Devils and despite a frantic late third quarter run that cut their deficit to eight points the Jackets lost by 12. The Jackets are now 5-1 for the season.
Vernon will play again Friday night when they travel to Chipley to face their county rival. The Thursday night game with Vernon playing Graceville has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts at Graceville and has been tentatively rescheduled for December 29 at Vernon.
