Till we meet again
The Okolona Chieftains and East Webster Wolverines ended their regular season the exact same way they started their playoff runs – eye-to-eye against each other.
In their Feb. 13 match, the Chiefs came out on top, 66-53, but the Wolves didn’t go quietly.
Okolona started off strong in the first with Javon Smith turning a steal into a goal and Jay Collins backing him up with another. Jacolbi Heard hit twice to put the Chiefs ahead by ten.
The Wolverines mounted a comeback in the second with Derek Jones hitting two from the line and Luke Wilson turning a steal into a deuce. Samuel Butler added two from the charity stripe to close the Wolverines within four points, but the Chiefs went the distance for the district win.
The Lady Chieftains struggled with a tough Lady Wolverines team, as most of their competitors have all season.
The Lady Wolves led 25-11 at the half and increased their lead in the third with help from a trey, a deuce and a putback from Mamie Hollenhead.
The Lady Chieftains got some help in the fourth with Breanna Griffin hitting from the line and Jamilla Ivy knocking in back-to-back treys, but it was too little and too late as the Lady Wolverines ran off with a 48-29 win.
Back in action
Okolona and East Webster will join Eupora, Calhoun City and Bruce in Trojanland for Divison 4-2A tournament this week where the Chiefs and Wolves were set to begin the battle Tuesday night.
The Lady Chiefs will kick off their bracket against the Lady Wolverines Thursday at 7 p.m.
Both games will be updated in the next edition of the Chickasaw Journal.
