The Hebron Christian Eagles make their third straight postseason appearance in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools' (MAIS) 8-man playoffs this Friday.
The Eagles (7-3; 2-1 District 2-A) lost the district championship to Kemper Academy 48-20 last Friday, putting the team on the road for the entire playoffs. Hebron opens the postseason against undefeated Marvell Academy (Ark.). The game kicks off at 7 p.m. in Marvell, Ark. The two teams met earlier in the season on Oct. 9 in Pheba.

Hebron made its deepest run in the 8-man postseason in 2013 when the team reached the semifinals, falling to eventual champion Sharkey-Issaquena Academy (SIA). Last year, Hebron was ousted by SIA, who won its second straight championship, in the opening round.
