Lions rout Rebels
By BARRY BURLESON
The H.W. Byers Lions visited the West Oktibbeha Christmas Shootout Tourna-ment Saturday and left with a 17-point win.
The Class 1A Lions, coached by Trey Lawrence, dominated Class 2A Scott Central 76-59 and improved their season mark to 6-2.
Byers was on fire from the opening tip. The Rebels from Forest never knew what hit them. The Lions built a commanding 22-8 lead after just one quarter. The score was 60-31 entering the fourth quarter.
Anthony Mabon, Jarvis Jones and Chris Echols accounted for 62 of the Lions’ 76 points. Mabon scored 23, Jones 21 and Echols 18.
The Byers boys were scheduled to host Coahoma County on Monday night of this week.
After a Christmas break, they will host Holly Springs Friday night, Dec. 30.
