On December 2, 2016, the Pearl “Pirate” football team went to play the Football State Championship game against the Clinton “Arrows.”

The game took place on the Mississippi State University football stadium.

It had been thirty-one years since a football team from Pearl’s district had play in the Football State Championship game.

At the end of the game, Clinton High School won the football game with the score at forty-nine points for Clinton and thirty-five points for Pearl.

Before the game started, the player on both football teams had their names and positions announced.

Clinton led the starting kickoff against Pearl. At the end of the first quarter, Pearl was winning in score with fourteen for Pearl and seven for Clinton. At the end of the second quarter, Clinton came back and stole the lead from Pearl.

At halftime, the Pearl and Clinton bands together performed “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful” for the crowd.

Once the game resumed into the third quarter, Clinton kept the lead from Pearl.

Clinton was awarded the Football State Championship trophy at the end of the game.

After the game, both Pearl and Clinton crowds exited the stadium.
