BJH wins all three games of jamboree

By Ike House
Batesville Junior High seventh grade hosted a jamboree on Tuesday night against Lafayette, Olive Branch, Southaven and Lake Cormorant. The junior high went undefeated on the day defeating three Desoto County schools. There were two games being played on each side of the 50 yard line. In the first two games of the day BJH was matched against Southaven.
BJH 14-7
The quarterback play was big for the starters and backups. Anterio Draper started the game with a big drive then capped it off with a five yard run to put the first points on the board. On the second series, Draper made a big strike down the field to LaDerrick Hill to push the score to 14-0.
On the next series for the Chargers, Hill showed off his hands once again when he intercepted on the 10.
 After both teams stalled, Southaven had a long drive on their last series with a 40 yard touchdown run from their quarterback that ended the game with a 14-7 win for the Tigers.
BJH 28-Olive Branch 0
The next matchup for the Tigers was against Olive Branch. The Tigers took the first defensive possession and did not disappoint. On the third play Charles Fox intercepted and ended the Conquistadors drive.
