Well, another NeMiss team goes down. Ripley gave a good fight but lost 67-65 to Pass Christian, which is in the state tournament for the first time since my papaw was a child (1925).
Pass led most of the game, but Ripley grabbed some momentum end of the third quarter, start of the fourth. Pass was just too athletic and too deep, and Ripley couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn from the inside. More in tomorrow’s Journal.
