After another two-week layoff on the gridiron, the Hebron Eagles will take the field tonight looking to continue their two game winning streak when they travel to Pearl to take on Class A-4 Park Place.
In their last contest, the Eagles came from behind to pull out a 36-16 victory over Clinton Christian thanks to a three touchdown performance by Taylor Coggins. Head coach Tri Nason said the layoff gave a chance for the Eagles to catch a breather.

Oak Hill have another test at Canton

September 23, 2011

Oak Hill Academy is still searching for their first win on the year.
But as the weeks continue, the opponents won’t get any easier, including Canton Academy.
The 2-3 Panthers have had an inconsistent season. After starting 0-2, they got their first victory over Hillcrest and went toe-to-toe with Winston Academy, arguably the toughest team in the district.
“They gave Winston a run for their money,” Raiders head coach Benjie Merchant said. “Athlete wise they’re like Manchester and they play hard.”
