Indians split district contests
By BARRY BURLESON
The Byhalia Indians got an all-important district win over Charleston Friday on the road.
“We’re still in the hunt for the playoffs,” said coach Bubba Brown, whose team went to 1-3 in the district. “We need to win out. We’ve played good, close baseball all year, and Friday we finally hit the baseball.
“If we hit the rest of the way, we will be in good shape.”
The bats definitely came alive in the 10-6 win over the Tigers.
Connecting for three hits each were Demarious Moore with a triple and two singles, Lamarcus Hardaway with two doubles and a single, Andrew Brown with three singles and Tarvarious Neal with a double and two singles.
Montrell Hardaway added a two-run homer and a triple.
Cody Wiley and Cordarryl Sanders had a single each, and Chris Hill had a run-batted-in.
Moore recorded the mound win. He struck out five.
The junior varsity Indians also defeated Charleston, 4-1.
Earlier last week, on Tuesday, the Indians dropped a district contest at home, 4-1 to Independence.
Hill took the mound loss. Dean Miller tossed in relief.
Byhalia had just three hits – a single each from Wiley, L. Hardaway and Marcus Thomas.
The Indians invaded Senatobia Tuesday. They travel to Water Valley Friday at 4 p.m. Both are important district games. Saturday, they host DeSoto Central at 12 noon and then visit Lewisburg at 6 p.m. Next Monday, April 2, Byhalia goes to Strayhorn at 5 p.m.
