The regular season rubber matches between two county rivals were played Tuesday, Jan. 28.
The first games had been at the Lions Den back on January 10 and like then, this was an H.W. Byers sweep of Potts Camp.
Hawks sweep Tigers
Holly Springs teams came through in the clutch Friday night.
The Hawks and Lady Hawks traveled to District 2-3A opponent Charleston and brought home 5- and 7-point victories, respectively.
Tyler Brown scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half as the Holly High boys turned back the Tigers 68-63. The Hawks improved to 6-1 in the district and 12-8 overall.
It was Dakota Dailey’s night Friday at West Point.
The Marshall Academy junior scored 35 points and reached the 2,000-point milestone as a varsity player. The Patriots escaped with a 54-49 win over Oak Hill Academy.
Behind The Scoreboard
I can’t remember the number of times which I have heard the refrain, “Fifty million Frenchmen can’t be wrong,” and with all apologies to the citizens of France, I can’t remember ever hearing what they were right about. However, I can begin to see how flipping the statement can become a liability.
Byhalia squads sweep Senatobia
By CLAUDE VINSON
On the last day of the first month of the new year, the Byhalia Indians and Lady Indians welcomed the Warrior teams from Senatobia, a District 2-4A foe, and swept them.
The tip in the girls’ game went to Byhalia and their Dandy Dozen player, Sandricka Sessom, had a good look but the shot missed its mark. The Lady Indians were employing a spread offense with a 3-2 format. It was creating defensive problems for the visitors. Meantime, the Lady Indians developed a 7-0 lead. The Lady Warriors did figure out the offense and put some points on the board, 13-8 at the end of one.
