Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, Noven ' )er 19, 2015 lins Wilkinson County High School quarterback Des- mond Hunter had another spectacular performance, but it was not enough as the Wildcats lost to the No. 1 ranked Collins Tigers 46-36 on Friday night, November 13, in the second round of the MHSAA Class 3A South State Playoffs. Hunter completed 23 of 44 passes for 374 yards and four touchdowns and one in- terception, and he had three carries for 25 yards. But, the lack of a running game and the inability to recover fum- bles cost the Wildcats their season. Collins appeared to be in control with a 38-22 lead with just over nine minutes left to play in the game. However, Wilkinson County would not go away quietly. The Wildcats scored a touch- down and added the two- point conversion with 7:41 remaining to make it a 38-30 contest. Then with 5:44 to go, the Wildcats scored another touchdown, but came up short on the two-point try attempt to trail 38-36. But, the comeback fell just short in the end. Collins scored a touch- down and a two-point con- version in the waning min- utes to put the game out of reach. WCHS's Juan Anthony had six catches for 119 yards, and Robert Swint had eight receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns. Travion Jones and Jaquarious Stew- art each had a touchdown catch. Phillip Thompson had 11 carries for 83 yards. Defensively, Steve Bren- gettsy and Juntavious Cage had 10 tackles apiece, and LaKendrick Washington added nine tackles. WCHS finished the 2015 season with an overall re- cord of 7-6. Free Workshop Available For Homeowners With Water Wells South Mississippi home- owners in small communi- ties and rural areas without public water supplies can learn how to better manage, operate and protect their private wells during a Dec. 1 program in Harrison County. "The Water Quality and Private Wells workshop will be Dec. 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. to help Mississippi well owners understand groundwater ba- sics, well care best practices and how to find assistance," said Jason R. Barrett, as- sistant Extension professor with the Mississippi State University Extension Cen- ter for Government and Community Development. "The program will teach well owners about their private wells, how to .sample their wells, how to interpret sam- ple results, and what they can do to protect their wells and source water from con- tamination." Information about the workshop and registra- tion is available at http'J/ The program will be at the MSU Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi. Additional information is available by calling 662-325- 3141. Joining Barrett in pre- senting the workshop will be Steve Wilson, a ground- water hydrologist with the Illinois State Water Survey; and Ralph Hayes, engineer- ing director with the Mis- sissippi State Department of Health. The Mississippi State De- partment of Health and the University of Illinois are assisting MSU Extension to help Mississippians with private wells learn more about managing their water supplies. "rhe majority of Missis- sippians get their water from municipal supplies or rural water associations, but there are thousands of homes in rural areas that depend on private wells," Barrett said. "In fact, an average of 12 percent of households in the state's 82 counties rely on private wells. In four of those counties, more than 40 per- cent of homes have private wells."
