• NOTABLES: With the win over Winona the Devils have clinched a spot in the Class 3A play-offs. A victory over Mooreville and a Nettleton loss would give WV a 2nd place finish in Region 2. If Aberdeen beats Nettleton, that would give the Bulldogs the Region 2 championship. WV & Mooreville will be meeting for the first time. The Troopers are currently in a three game losing skid, after winning six in a row. Mooreville’s only region victory was over South Pontotoc. The Devils are likely to face M.S. Palmer, Cleveland Eastside or Charleston in the first round of the play-offs.
