The North Sunflower Academy Rebels will finally be able to play a football game against a team from Mississippi.
The need to rebound into the win column is now the immediate goal for the Gentry High Rams football team.
After absorbing a turnover-laden 44-14 loss to visiting North Panola High of Sardis last Friday night, the now 2-2 Rams will travel to Belzoni this Friday for a 7 p.m. non-regional clash with the 0-4 Humphreys County Cowboys.
The path to a victory is not getting any easier for the Ruleville Central High Tigers.
After seeing their record fall to 1-3 following last Friday’s 24-6 loss to O’Bannon High of Greenville, the Tigers will travel to Itta Bena this Friday to take on a 3-1 Leflore County High squad.
After opening the District 1E portion of their schedule with last Friday’s 44-28 road decision over Marvell (AR) Academy, the North Sunflower Academy Rebels take another week off from action due to an open date.
With their regular season winding down and playoffs looming on the horizon, the Indianola Academy Lady Colonels have recently been dodging rain while their schedule has them hosting Carroll Academy at 6:30 p.m. next Monday in a final non-district contest.
The rain held off on Monday night just long enough for the Indianola Academy softball team to take down Kirk Academy in Grenada.
The Lady Colonels won the game 11-1.
With that win, the girls improve to a 14-1; 4-1 regular season record.
With little time to reflect on last week’s 22-6 loss to rival Gentry High School, the Ruleville Central High Tigers have turned their attention to this week’s opposition, the O’Bannon High Green Wave of Greenville.
They just keep rolling along.
After using a punishing defense as well as an offense which featured timely big plays, the Indianola Academy Colonels improved their record to a 3-0 mark last Friday with a not-as-close-as-it-sounds 35-21 victory over visiting Starkville Academy.
