MOUNT VERNON — As they make their final preparations for sectionals, the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets spent Tuesday warming up against a local team.

That local team turned into a bit more than a warm-up.

The Jackets topped the Highland Scots, 48-24, at Pleasant Street Elementary’s gymnasium, but the Scots got in a few blows of their own.
