The Calhoun City Wildcats, 10-2, will host the Ray Brooks Tigers, 12-0, tonight for the Class 1A North Half Championship at 7 p.m. The winner will advance to next Friday’s State Championship game at Memorial Stadium in Jackson to play the winner of Mt. Olive and Puckett.

Ray Brooks, the defending 1A champs put the state’s second-longest
winning streak (24), only behind South Panola, on the line tonight against the Wildcats. The Tigers are led by a pair of dominant RBs in Devarcus
Ireland and Anthony Lewis. Both eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark this season.

“Ireland is their bell-cow,” Calhoun City Wildcats head coach Mike Ray said. “We have a stiff challenge in trying to slow him down.”

The Wildcats are coming off impressive back-to-back wins over previously once-beaten Greenville St.
Joe and the state’s top-ranked  team in East Webster. The Wildcats defense has been the story in both victories, dominating the line of scrimmage.

The weather for tonight shows a 50% chance of rain with temperatures in the low 50s.
