Bates leads Louisville football team past Pontotoc

Posted 11/8/2009 in High School Sports

LOUISVILLE — There was some question going into the Louisville High School football team’s first-round Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 4A North Half State playoff matchup as to whether sophomore wide receiver C.J. Bates would play. The Warriors of Pontotoc High School left the turf of Louisville’s R.E. Hinze Stadium on Friday night wishing he had not. Bates caught seven passes, including one for a touchdown that led to LHS tying the game late, and intercepted a pass on the last play of the game to spark the Wildcats to a 28-21 double-overtime win.

Posted 11/6/2009 in High School Sports

WEST POINT — Tommy Keys and his defensive linemates don’t need an elaborate answer to explain their success. Like their counterparts on the offensive line, Keys and the rest of the West Point High School defensive linemen have a one-track mind and they explode from there. “You’ve got to want to first,” Keys said. “Everybody else relies on us because if we get blown back everybody else is going to get blown back.”

 

 

Aberdeen ready to make run in playoffs

Posted 11/6/2009 in High School Sports

ABERDEEN — Fred Ward and Channing Ward don’t want people to forget about the Aberdeen High School football team. At the beginning of the season, the Bulldogs were the talk of the area and the state. Many people thought they were going to run the table and secure an easy road to the Class 3A state title game in Jackson. An injury to starting quarterback Aaron Andrews played a role in an opening-season loss to Class 6A Columbus and a loss to Class 4A Pontotoc in week three, but the Bulldogs have regrouped and are ready to make their playoff run.

 

 

Caledonia soccer team begins rebuilding process

Posted 11/6/2009 in High School Sports

CALEDONIA — Everything came together last season for Morgan Mansfield and the Caledonia High School boys soccer team. The first-year coach needed time to mold a senior-laden team into form, but things took off when the pieces solidified. This season, the Confederates will have to find a way to replace six seniors who played key roles in a 14-5 school-best season and a trip to the Class 4A North Half State title game. Even though Caledonia won’t be as experienced as it was last season, Mansfield is excited about what his team can accomplish this season.

 

 

Heritage Academy coach Allsup likes mix on his team

Posted 11/6/2009 in High School Sports

Bruce Allsup likes his mix of players. Sometimes coaches have the luxury of dealing with senior-laden teams that can adjust to nearly every situation. Other years, coaches have to take a step back and start fresh with inexperienced squads. This season, Allsup figures to have a mix of both with his Heritage Academy girls basketball team. Seniors Madison Ford, Morgan Lott, and Carolina Borland will lead a 12-player team that features four juniors and five sophomores.

 

 

Central Academy's Eaves has game to remember

Posted 11/5/2009 in High School Sports

Everything came together Friday night for Trevor Eaves. It was motivation enough that Eaves and the Central Academy football team had to face archrival Kemper Academy on Senior Night in their regular-season finale. The game carried added motivation because Kemper Academy knocked Central Academy out of the playoffs last season. To make matters even bigger, the Vikings needed a victory to help force a tie atop the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools eight-man District I standings.

New Hope's Stillman plays through pain

Posted 11/4/2009 in High School Sports

Toughness and commitment are one to Seth Stillman. It’s something he thinks about when he is on the field and in pain Friday nights with his “brothers” on the New Hope High School football team. As difficult as it is for Stillman, a senior linebacker, to describe the intensity of that pain, he is somehow able to compartmentalize that feeling and allow his leadership skills to take over. At no time did Stillman’s presence on the field mean more than it did on Friday night in New Hope’s game against Hernando at Trojan Field.

Posted 11/1/2009 in High School Sports

Championship programs are made of this. The New Hope High School football team still has work to do before it earns a title, but it showed Saturday night it just might have the mettle to be a state contender.

Columbus loses game to Olive Branch

Posted 11/1/2009 in High School Sports

OLIVE BRANCH — Olive Branch High School football coach Scott Samsel hadn’t called a swinging gate play in three years. He did so at just the right time Saturday afternoon.

Posted 11/1/2009 in High School Sports

Yet every time the rain increased, Parker Eaves connected with Tyler Jones for another long touchdown pass. Eaves hooked up with Jones for three of his four touchdown passes on the night to lead Victory Christian to a 46-6 victory against Victory Millbrook in the semifinals of the Christian Football Association playoffs.
