Eagles stop skid, Lady Eagles win five straight

December 7, 2011

Hebron Christian earned their first conference win of the season in the heels of a defensive effort that netted 22 total steals, 49-39 over Calhoun Academy.

The victory snapped another two game skid for the Eagles who improved to 5-4 on the season and 1-1 in 3A action.

“It was a slow defensive game, both of us were in a zone,” head coach Tri Nason explained. ‘Once we started shooting from the outside, they switched to man and that loosened them up the rest of the game. We started stealing, driving and making easy lay-ups.”

December 7, 2011

SCOOBA – Before East Mississippi hoisted their first ever football national championship, the coaches knew it was going to be a slugfest. Both the Lions and Matadors were ranked nationally in offense and featured some of the country’s top talent in every position.
EMCC secondary coach Clifton Collins knew it was going to be a battle from the opening kickoff.
“They got some great players on offense,” he said. “We’re not taking anything away from what they can do, but we made some mistakes and took some bad angles against their running back and he scored four touchdowns on us.”
