The Starkville Academy Patrons Association is headed West for its second annual Rodeo Round-Up and Cow Patty Splat Saturday.
Scheduled from 4-8 p.m. at the Mississippi Horse Park, Facility Director Bricklee Miller said SAPA promises to bring even more excitement to the organizationâ€™s annual event.
EUPORA â€“ The Eupora Eagles defeated the Noxapater Tigers Friday night 37-12 to improve to 2-0 for the season in a game riddled with penalties and what was a defensive struggle early.
It wasn't the type of performance that the Starkville Academy Volunteers were looking for in their home opener at J.E. Logan Field Friday night.
Even though the Heritage Academy Patriots made it look easy in defeating the Vols 19-6, Starkville Academy coach Jeff Terrill knows it's just one game.
MADISON â€“ The rains fell in Madison on Friday night leading to miscues for the Starkville Yellowjackets.
It helped the Madison Central Jaguars secure a 24-8 victory at home.
Starkville and Madison Central combined for 11 fumbles for the night with SHS having six, losing three.
ACKERMAN â€“ The Ackerman High School football game needed to pick its offense up this week.
It was evident that they had a better gameplan and were able to beat Winona 19-16 at Dale Davidson Field Friday night.
OKOLONA â€“ Deangelo Liggins had 55 yards rushing on 14 carries and had a 6-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as the East Webster Wolverines defeated Okolona 14-6 Friday night on the road.
Wilbur O'Briant returned a fumble 49 yards for a touchdown to give the Wolverines their first points of the game.
