move atop district race
By BARRY BURLESON
Back in August, just before Marshall Academy’s first football game, coach Keith Wicker didn’t know who would be kicking extra points and field goals.
Indians snatch big district win
The head coach of the Byhalia Indians lamented the fact that his team has not really learned the “killer instinct” and how to apply it; however, he was pleased that the Indians escaped with a region 3-3A victory at Independence.
Hawks lose close one
If the Hawks’ fans were wondering just how their heroes would fare against the region-leading Warriors of Senatobia, their fears were partially assuaged by Holly High’s performance in their second real home game of the season.
Making few pro football observations
First, let me offer apologies to those who have asked me about the playoffs in the Major Leagues. Actually, I had planned to say a few words about the “boys of summer,” who were lucky enough to continue their season. They have a ways to go so there is a possibility that we can catch up next week.
Junior high Pats improve to 6-0
The Marshall Academy junior high Patriots have shut out five of their six opponents, the latest being a 24-0 win last Thursday at Lee (Clarksdale).
MA is 6-0 on the season, and next up is another unbeaten team, Indianola. The Patriots host the Colonels this Thursday at 7 p.m. for the district championship.
“This week’s game will be tough,” said coach Webb Lewis. “Indianola is really, really good. We haven’t been tested since the second game (20-18 win at Magnolia Heights).”
In the five shutouts, the MA offense has racked up 168 points.
“Our defense has been dominating,” Lewis said. “Because the defense has been doing so well, we’ve been trying a lot of stuff on offense. We’ve really been clicking, but Indianola will be a big test.”
There was a mistake in last week’s story headlined “Lady Patriots knock off Immanuel 2-1”
One name was wrong in the list of seniors on the Marshall Academy soccer team.
The Lady Patriots lose five seniors – Jessica Taylor, Nealy Jones, Erica Owens, Anna Kathryn Adair and Ellen Gresham.
The South Reporter apologizes for the error.
MA girls wrap up state title season
“Wow, what a ride,” was about all head coach Susan Rodgers could say to her Lady Patriots as they concluded their magical fast-pitch softball season October 3 at the Mississippi Private School Association Overall Tournament.
