“Court” will resume tomorrow November 20th with the teams changing up opponents. Mansfield will take on Booneville with the Sr High girls playing at 4 and the Sr High boys playing at 530. No jury selection will be needed when Hackett closes out the night against Western Yell with the Sr High girls playing at 7 and the Sr High boys playing at 830.
Both Mansfield and Hackett boys and girls teams are evenly matched with their 0-1 seasons so far. The Mansfield Tigers fell to the Lavaca Arrows while the Hackett Hornets came up short against the Cedarville Pirates. With both teams stepping up ready to conquer the win, it really is anyone’s game.
