City’s playoff hopes vanish with one-point loss
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
The Yazoo City Indians (6-4) began the season by putting up a strong front against the first four teams the squad matched up against. Coming right out of the gates, playing some competitive clubs, the Indians showed immediate marked improvement from 2010, winning their first four games.
The last six outings have not produced as good of results in the win-loss column, but the Indians have remained competitive, and they know going into the final week, they will not have a losing campaign in 2011.
“We knew this 5A ball was going to be tough,” said Yazoo City High School head coach Tony Woolfolk. “We were in the Neshoba game, we were in the Provine game, and we were in the Ridgeland game. We could easily be 9-1 if the ball bounces our way.”
That competitive edge was manifested once again, last Friday night, when the Indians squared off against the Ridgeland Titans at home. The chilly temperatures could not cool down the Ridgeland club, which barely squeaked out a 21-20 win over the Indians.
