( Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, October 22, 2015 I by David Owens The Centreville Acad- emy Tigers traveled to Natchez on Friday night, October 16, and lost a hard fought non-district game 27-14 to the much bigger and talented Cathedral Green Wave. The Tigers put up a spirited effort against the larger Cathedral team, and with a little luck have come home with the upset. By losing, the Tigers fell to (5-4) on the season and (2-1) in district with a key district game com- ing up against the Silliman Wildcats on Friday night, October 23. Game time will be at 7 p.m. The Tigers' offense was once again led by Tyler Caston and Britt Netter- ville. Netterville rushed for 111 yards including a 73-yard touchdown. Cas- ton grabbed 11 passes for 140 yards and scored on a 22-yard pass from Netter- ville, who was 13 of 25 in passing for 163 yards. The defense was led by Chris Jones and Coleton Peterson with 7 stops each. Netterville had 6 steps and an interception.

Hazlehurst appeared to be in control after scoz~_ng a touchdown to go up 26- 0 with just 4:09 remain- ing in the third quarter. But, WCHS would end up making the Indians work harder than they probably expected for a victory. "If we played the first half like we did the second half, we win the game;":md WCHS Head Coach Ketl- neth Brown. "They came in highly-ranked. We've got such a big lead. They scored 12 points in the first quar- ter and eight in the second period to go into h~e with a 20-0 advantage. But, after Hazlehurst's touch- down in the third quarter, the Wildcats would not go away. Wilkinson County cut the lead to 26-8 with 2:14 to go in the third quarter and put up 14 points in the fourth quarter. But, the Wildcat rally attempt fell just a little bit short. Hunter completed 33 of 52 passes for 481 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Juan Antho- ny had 10 catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns. Jaquarious Stewart had eight catches for 105 yards. Robert Swint had seven re- ceptions for 78 yards and to stop putting, pressure on ' one touchdown. du~etam~. --: .~ ~," :;,~.~.,~ ; ! .... A lact~ of~ tree rtmaing Hunter did not play like game also hurt Wilkinson one of the top quarterbacks in the state in the first half, and Brown so much as said so after the game. "Early in the (first) half, a couple of passes were too high. He threw some in the dirt. Dropped a few passes. The second half, he settled down and played a whole lot better," Brown com- mented. And that allowed the In- dians (8-0, 3-0) to get out to County in this game. The Wildcats had just 60 yards on the ground. Hunter was the team's leading rusher with 38 yards on seven car- ries, while Phillip Thomp- son had seven carries for 22 yards. WCHS, (4-5) 1-2), will be in a must-win situation when they play at Port Gib- son on Friday night, Oc- tober 23. Game time is at 7 p.m. CONCORDIA METAL INC. OPEN MONDAY - FRIDAY 7:30 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.

The first score came when Steven Franks capped a 46-yard drive with a 21-yard run up the middle of the Rebel de- fense. The PAT pass failed so with 4:57 showing on the first quarter clock the Rams led 6-0. On the ensuing kickoff a Rebel player miffed the ball and WCCA's Kyle Folds recovered on the ASC 40. Two plays later Ram quar- terback Calob Poole tossed a strike in the endzone to Phillip Cutrer for a 37-yard TD.

Supt. Scott brought up the need for a change order on the recently completed parking lot construction project at FinCh Elemen- tary School in Centreville. "The project went $8,000 over the cost estimate to accommodate new curb- ing which will require two new gates and some new fencing," Supt, Scott com- mented. The additional $8,000 is over and above the cost estimate on the project of $230,956.50. On motion by Bateaste and a second by Spiller, the board approved the addi- tional expenditure as pre- sented. Supt. Scott reported that since August, 2015, he and Wilkinson County Solid Waste Enforcement Offi- cer Marlin Reid have been working on cleaning up an illegal dump on the Low- er Woodville Road at the school district's entrance into school section property. "The school district is having to pay for a large dumpster placed at the lo- cation of the illegal dump," said Supt. Scott. "The coun- ty has cleaned up the site several times, but the ille- gal dumping is continuing." Solid Waste Enforcement Officer Reid stated, "Litter and illegal dumping is a problem all over the county. It is continuing at the site noted by the superinten- dent. It is all cleaned up right now. "Reid continued, "I found out the names of several people who dumped at this site. When contacted, they agreed to clean up their garbage instead of being prosecuted. It is my recom- mendation that the school district put up an eight-foot tall wire fence to help cut down on this particular ille- gal dumping problem. The school district would have to have their attorney look to see where the fence could be erected according to the property line."
