Projected winners in bold (record) miles to The Big House
Friday March 3 at Mississippi Coliseum
1:00 (G) Region 5 #1 Lake (23-9) travels 55 miles vs Region 8 #1 Heidelberg (27-7) travels 86 miles
Coach Moncrief and her Lady Hornets stung the favorites to advance to the Championship game. I see her momentum taking her all the way to the Gold Ball.
3:00 (B) Region 3 #1 Coahoma County (29-2) travels 161 miles vs Region 3 #2 Northside (9-11) travels 140 miles
Coahoma County has a 3-0 record over Northside this season winning 53-30, 56-45 and 55-44 according to MaxPreps. Will the fourth time be the lucky number for the Gators or will the Red Panthers complete the sweep? Coach Moore is one of the active leaders across the state in Championship game appearances and that is a very short list. I see his big game experience winning out and they should bring the Gold Ball back to Clarksdale.
