SCOOBA â€“ There hasn't been much adversity thrown in the face of the East Mississippi Community College Lions this season.
The Lions faced their first real test Saturday. They responded nicely.
No. 2 EMCC overcame a 7-point halftime deficit, as they beat No. 5 Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College 45-28 in a MACJC semifinal game at Sullivan-Windham Field.
There were many big plays during Saturday's MACJC playoff game between the East Mississippi Community College Lions and the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Bulldogs.
The biggest play may have been by the GCCC band at halftime.
For some reason, the visiting band felt the need to include the song "We are the Champions" as part of its halftime routine.
ACKERMAN â€“Â Coach Adam Dillinger took at chance last season by moving T.C. Hatchett from strictly defense to placing the ball in his hands occasionally on offense.
There was a scenario that existed for the Hebron Christian Eagles on Friday night that if they had lost by a certain score, they would be left out of the postseason.
Even with taking a 3-0 mark into a road game against Calhoun Academy, everything the Eagles had done could have been for nothing with a bad outing in Calhoun City.
MABEN â€“ After Eupora's lead had been cut to 21-18, head coach Junior Graham decided to change things up on the kickoff.
Instead of running the kickoff up the sideline, he decided to run a wedge in the middle.
Chance Cooper took the kickoff 95 yards to start a 14-0 run, as the Eagles went on to beat rival East Webster 35-18 to earn a playoff berth.Â
MABEN â€“ Rivalry games take on a life of their own.
Action goes back and forth. Teams get hyped more than with any other game and excitement simply flows throughout.
