North Panola had defeated Coldwater 64-58 December 7 in Sardis, but the road game was tough on the Cougars.

Scoring leaders for North Panola were Devonte Howard and Robert Oliver, nine points each; Darius Jackson and Anjayvious Farmer, six points each; Gerotney Kelson, five points; and Quin Perry, two points.

The Lady Cougars lost their game to Coldwater by six points, according to head coach Daphne Thomas.
“We just had a terrible shooting night,” she said.

The Lady Cougars had sneaked by Coldwater 46-44 on December 7. North Panola is also playing without the services of Teariny Wheatley who suffered a sprained right knee injury in the January 22 game against Byhalia.

She is expected to be available for Friday’s game against Independence.

Tonight, the Cougar teams travel to Winona for a district rematch from last week. North Panola creamed each team by a large margin. Games start at 5 p.m. with the junior varsity girls.

Friday, the Cougar teams return home for senior night against Independence in the final district and regular season game starting at 6 p.m.

North Panola will host the District Tournament next week, January 11-15. The schedule will follow when it becomes available.
