The 8th Grade B-Team was able to notch their first win of the season with an impressive 28-8 victory.
The 7th Grade MPJH Lady Tigers pulled off another win, defeating Texarkana 35-33. Mount Pleasant started the game red-hot scoring 17 in the first quarter and building a 12 point lead. They cooled off during the second quarter, however, and allowed Texarkana to close the gap as the score was 23-18 at the half. The second half was a battle, but Mount Pleasant never let Texarkana even the score. The Lady Tigers were able to hang on their lead to get the win, bringing their District and Overall Records to 4-0.
Mount Pleasant is hosting a tournament tomorrow, December 9th, where both 7th and 8th Grade Lady Tigers will play Mount Vernon and Pleasant Grove.
