AMORY – The Amory boys’ basketball team was waiting for Saturday afternoon. Winless up to that point, the Panthers got into the win column with a 63-52 victory over Mantachie. “This is good for our guys. Like last year, we’re 1 and whatever, and you play hard but lose a bunch of kids who transfer […]
ABERDEEN – Nettleton came out with the hot start in Friday’s Division 4-3A boys’ basketball contest. That early lead aided them as Aberdeen gave them all they wanted in the second half before the Tigers hung on for the 64-61 win. “We didn’t come out and play very well in the second half,” Nettleton coach […]
By Rob Williams For the Monroe Journal SMITHVILLE – When the Houlka Wildcats came to Smithville on Friday night, the game could have been promoted as an offensive shootout between last year’s freshman of the year Madarius Hobson of Houlka and Smithville’s long-range senior bomber Kylar Poole. Poole stole the show in the first half […]
AMORY – Amory senior Trey Clark was just in the seventh grade in 2011, the last time the Panthers’ boys soccer team reached the North state finals. This time, Clark gets to experience North half from the other side as a senior co-captain after Amory beat Pontotoc 2-0 on Saturday to set up Wednesday’s matchup […]
AMORY – It was the tale of two halves for the Amory Lady Panthers soccer team last Tuesday night. The Lady Panthers (12-6) took a 1-0 lead in the first half but saw Florence come out in the second half and rally for the 3-1 win. “They’re a good team. We gave up a goal […]
Hatley football coach Patrick Schoolar has been named the next head coach at Neshoba Central High School. The Neshoba Democrat first reported the news on Friday afternoon. “Neshoba Central is a lot like Hatley, and we felt at home there,” Schoolar said. “They had my wife come down for the second interview, which I’ve never […]
By Rob Williams For the Monroe Journal HATLEY – Alana Edwards is an all-around basketball player. She can handle the ball, pass, rebound and play defense, but the Hatley sophomore’s main contribution to the Lady Tigers is points. Equally comfortable under the basket or beyond the three-point arc, Edwards can be counted on for double […]
HATLEY – Hatley nearly made the comeback on Monday night that would have helped put them ahead in Division 4-3A. The Lady Tigers’ fourth-quarter comeback fell short, however, as they were handed a 48-44 loss to South Pontotoc in division play. “We had too many missed opportunities. I thought they beat us in the second […]
AMORY – Smithville came out with a hot start on Thursday night against its county rival Amory. The Noles led by double digits at the end of the first quarter and sustained a few lulls during the game to top the Panthers with a 45-24 win. “In a game like this with so much emotion, […]
