PETAL – It’s been an up and down start for Petal, starting the season 2-2 with a difficult non-region schedule. It doesn’t get much easier with Region 3-6A starting and the state’s No. 2 team coming to town.
LUMBERTON – The Lumberton Panthers are right where they want to be. They’ve posted a 3-1 record through the first four games, and the Panthers start their quest for another district title Friday night at home against Mount Olive.
Coming off a bye, coach Zach Jones said his team did everything he wanted them to do during the off week.
SUMRALL – The Bobcats have reeled off four straight wins to begin the season 4-1 with one non-region game left on the schedule for the second straight season, but why does this season feel a little different?
With district play starting this week for most teams, I thought it would be a good idea to break down what these teams will be up against in each district. Purvis and Sumrall are the lone teams that aren’t starting district play this week, and the two will get started next week with a matchup against each other.
