Clinton, Madison Central gear up for district opener

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

District play opens this week for many high school teams across the area. Region 2-6A is considered one of the state's toughest districts, and Clinton and Madison Central are two of the reasons why.

The Jags host Clinton Friday night after last week's tie to West Monroe.

“Coming in we just really didn't know what to expect and you know in spots we've played real well over the course of the first part of the season.” Madison Central head coach Anthony Hart said. “We've made some mistakes that have hurt us, but those mistakes are forced, you're not out there by yourself. We've played really good teams and they've done a good job against us.

The Arrows meanwhile are the state's top-ranked team entering with a perfect 4-0 record.

“They're starting to understand how to finish a game.” added Clinton head coach Judd Boswell. “How to start it number one, but how to play through four quarters whereas last year we may have played two quarters then taken off the gas a little bit. They've done a good job of maturing and understanding that and getting better.”

The Arrows and Jags kickoff Friday at 7:00 p.m. from Madison Central High School.
