The South Panola Tigers bounced back into the win column this weekend after falling to Horn Lake last Tuesday.
South Panola took no Eagle prisoners Friday night as they downed Horn Lake 15-6.
Saturday the Tigers enjoyed a rare win over Senatobia 15-5 in five innings, using the mercy run rule.
"Tuesday, Horn Lake threw everything at us," head coach Patrick Robey said. "Friday, they could do nothing with us."
Horn Lake jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning.
South Panola got the bats going in the top of the second inning and scored five runs. The Eagles pulled within one, 5-4, in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Everything worked for the Tigers in the top of the fifth as they went through the batting order and scored seven runs.
Horn Lake was able to score two runs in the bottom of the sixth and the Tigers held them scoreless in the bottom of the seventh.
The Tigers lost to Senatobia three times last year, according to Robey.
"It was time for some payback," he said.
The Tigers led 3-2 at the endof the first inning. Then they scored five runs in the bottom of the second for an 8-2 lead.
The Tigers scored one in the bottom of the third, five in the bottom of the fourth and one in the bottom of the fifth for the win.
Some more tough district battles face the Tigers this week.
