On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, two Hattiesburg football players sit down with sports editor Camal Petro for interviews, as well as breakdowns of other area games.
Sacred Heart Crusaders
The Sacred Heart Crusaders are going through tough times, as they prepare for Mount Olive Friday night. Injuries have mounted up and the offense has stalled against good competition to go along with other issues inside the program.
Not much changed in this week’s Associated Press Prep Poll, as the Hattiesburg remains the only team in the area ranked in Overall Top 10 at No. 5. Petal is also receiving a vote in the poll, but it’s 15 votes behind No. 10 East Central.
Lumberton dropped from T-4 to sitting alone at No. 5 in the 1A poll, too.
HATTIESBURG – Lumberton coach Zach Jones was unhappy with his team’s start to Friday’s game with Sacred Heart, and he said that’s an understatement.
In fact, he wouldn’t say what was said in the locker room at halftime, but whatever it was, it worked because Lumberton finished strong to take down Sacred Heart 44-7.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast Lumberton coach Zach Jones and Petal wide receiver Trent Williams join the show for separate interview.
MERIDIAN – Mary Margaret Parker (Sacred Heart) scored in the 87th minute to lift the Jones County Junior College Lady Bobcats to a 2-1 victory over Meridian Community College here Tuesday evening.
The win clinches the MACJC South Division title for JCJC. The Lady Bobcats are now 8-1-1 overall and 6-0-1 in the division.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, sports editor Camal Petro sits down with Petal head coach Marcus Boyles. They discuss last week’s win over Oak Grove, Boyles’ team and this week’s matchup with Brandon.
After the break, the other seven contests featuring area teams are analyzed.
COLUMBIA – The Crusaders have had two weeks to think about their 44-0 loss to Resurrection, and they’re eager to get back on the field this week at East Marion.
Coach Lonny Schraeder said his bunch had a productive off week, too.
