NFL races

It is now approaching week 10 in the NFL. Do you know where your team is? Actually the records reflect week nine but the first game which was played before the initial start-up weekend makes the next weekend of play the 10th. Make sense? Don’t worry, I don’t understand it either.

Indians start with win

The Byhalia Indians tipped off their basketball season in fine fashion on Tuesday of last week.

Five players scored in double figures as coach Charles Gillespie’s team blasted Tunica Rosa Fort 84-56.

Demarious Moore and Adarryl Richmond scored 14 points each, while Jeremy Lucas and Cordell Jefferson added 13 each. Norrell Malone had 10.

Byhalia led 39-21 at the half.

“We were out of school all day (for a teacher in-service meeting), and I thought we would come out sluggish,” Gillespie said, “but we played pretty good basketball.”

He returns eight players from last season’s squad which finished 22-13.

“We’re expecting a good season, if there are no injuries and the guys can keep their grades up,” he said.

The Byhalia Lady Indians, led by head coach Summer Pannell, lost by two points to Tunica Rosa Fort.

Coach Gillespie said a strong second half rally by the Lady Indians came up short. They trailed by 15 at the half.

Byhalia teams were scheduled to host Marshall County rival H.W. Byers Tuesday night. They then visit Benton County neighbor Ashland on Friday night. Next Tuesday, Nov. 15, the Indians and Lady Indians host Independence.
