The Byhalia Indians picked up their third district win of the week Friday, beating Alcorn Central 9-1 at home.

Coach Bubba Brown’s Indians improved to 5-2 in district play, practically assuring themselves of a playoff spot, and 10-7 overall.

Courtney Hardaway went the distance for the pitching victory over the Bears.

He also blasted a home run to support his mound work.

Others carrying big bats for the Indians included Corey Deberry, Tyson McAlexander, Corey Parker, Jeremy Lucas, Dee Moore and Brandon Byers. Justin Rose scored multiple runs.

Earlier in the week the Indians had knocked off Kossuth, the second place team in the division, 8-1, and distict-leading North Pontotoc 6-2. Both of those games were also on the home turf in Byhalia.

The Indians were scheduled to host Ripley on Tuesday of this week. They will travel to Corinth Friday for a 3 p.m. contest. Both are important district matchups and wrap up the regular season.

The state playoffs begin on April 21-23.

The top four teams from the district advance to the postseason.
