Battle of Yazoo
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
It’s been nearly two months since Yazoo City swept Yazoo County on the Panthers’ home court. In what is considered the biggest rivalry inside the county, there’s no doubt the Panthers and Lady Panthers will be looking for revenge on Saturday when the two schools meet for a pair of games at Yazoo City High School.
The Indians won 44-30 in early December, while the Lady Indians won their game 33-21.
Since that Saturday, the Indians (17-8) have gone 11-6 while the Panthers (8-16) have gone 4-11 in that same time period. Since claiming their lone win of the season, the Lady Indians (1-23) have lost 15 games. On the other hand, the Lady Panthers (9-15) have gone 5-9, but have lost six straight games.
Saturday’s games will begin at 3 p.m. with the Lady Indians and Lady Panthers facing off against one another. The Indians and Panthers will square off on the hardwood following the girls game at Yazoo City High School.
