Byhalia only Region 3 team left
By CLAUDE VINSON
Head coach Devin Rutherford and his Byhalia Indians saw the playoff road ahead a bit clearer after last Friday night at home. After that round one, the Indians are the only representatives left from Region 3.
The other three teams which were seeded in round one, Senatobia (#2), North Panola (#3), and Independence (#4), all dropped out last week. Senatobia was beaten by McClain, the number three entry from Region 4.
North Panola was stopped by Charleston, also of Region 4, and Independence was beaten by the number one seed in region 4, Velma Jackson.
The Indians will face the Aberdeen Bulldogs this Friday, Nov. 16, at Aberdeen. The Indians were hoping for another home game, but the new rules state that the team with the lowest number of home games will be designated as host.
Aberdeen, third seed from Region 2, squeaked past Booneville by a score of 14-12.
Should the Indians get past the Bulldogs, they will meet the Velma Jackson-Corinth winner next week. The same rules for designation of home team apply.
After the historic win over Humphreys County, Coach Rutherford charged his players to start playing and thinking like a playoff team.
“This is serious,” he said. “You have to perform with what is on the inside. You have to play with heart.”
Rutherford also thanked Byhalia fans for their support.
