Playoffs Breakdown

First, here’s what we packed into today’s Daily Journal:

Nerves be gone: Tish Co. drops New Hope

Lone run enough for Nettleton win

Itawamba’s Miller among new QBs ready to take reins

Collins on tennis title road again

The Coaching Q’s: Jason Cobb, Hamilton softball

I also did a story about coaches having to flip a coin to determine Game 3 sites. Here is an updated list of sites and start times for Saturday’s “if” games (Greenville St. Joe-Smithville will play two today if needed):

Class 4A
New Hope at Tishomingo Co., 2 p.m.
Pearl at Lafayette Co., 6 p.m.
Vicksburg at Oxford, 6 p.m.
West Lauderdale at New Albany, 6 p.m.
Class 3A
Louisville vs. Ripley, at Fulton, 3 p.m.
Amory at Senatobia, 6 p.m.
Lewisburg at Houston, TBD
Byhalia at Mooreville, 11 a.m.
Class 2A
Simmons at Baldwyn, 3 p.m.
Hamilton at O’Bannon, TBD
East Union at Riverside, 2 p.m.
Class 1A
Vardaman at Hickory Flat, TBD
West Union at Ingomar, 2 p.m.
Calhoun City at Myrtle, 6:30 p.m.
Pelahatchie vs. East Webster, at Louisville, 1 p.m.

A quick breakdown of who did what last night. First, in baseball, we had 12 NeMiss teams win, six lose (three of those losses were to other area teams). Those hoping to fight off elimination tonight: New Albany (vs. West Lauderdale), Ripley (vs. Louisville), Amory (vs. Senatobia), Hickory Flat (vs. Vardaman), West Union (vs. Ingomar), and Calhoun City (vs. Myrtle).

In softball, Nettleton, Hamilton and Smithville won. Vardaman lost (to Smithville), as did two-time defending state champ East Webster (to Bogue Chitto). Softball resumes Saturday with Games 2 and 3 (if needed).
