Byhalia Indians improve to 10-4


The Byhalia Indians got out the brooms last week for a sweep of two opponents – Senatobia and North Panola.

The Indians’ offense was clicking on all cylinders in an 88-69 home win Tuesday night over always-tough Senatobia.

Twelve Indians scored in the victory – four of those in double digits. Cordell Jefferson had 16, Adarryl Richmond 14, Jeremy Lucas 11 and Norrell Malone 11.

Coach Charles Gillespie’s crew blasted out of the starting gate for a 26-18 lead after one quarter and 49-34 advantage at the half. They led 70-50 after three periods.

The offense remained in high gear Friday night at North Panola. Byhalia’s boys won 72-55.

The scoring, once again, was balanced.

Demarius Moore poured in 20 points to lead the way. Richmond had 19, and Jefferson scored 15. Five other Indians scored.

Byhalia improved to 10-4.

The Lady Indians split against the same two opponents – losing a close one at home to Senatobia and then beating North Panola on the road.

The Lady Indians just couldn’t get over the hump in their game against Senatobia, losing 61-57.

They trailed 14-12 after one quarter, 30-27 at the half and 48-37 following three quarters.

Ashley Wilson led Byhalia’s point production with 15, including three “threes.” Seven other Lady Indians scored.

Portia Tucker scored 35 of Senatobia’s 61 points.

The Lady Indians bounced back Friday night. They turned back North Panola 45-30.

Coach Summer Pannell’s team led 27-20 after three quarters before pulling away in the fourth.

Once again, Byhalia (8-6) had balanced scoring. Wilson was the only Lady Indian in double figures with 10. Again, seven other players scored. Chasidy Kizer had nine.

Byhalia teams go to M.S. Palmer this Friday night.
