MOOREVILLE – The Mantachie Mustangs didn’t come up exactly where they wanted to after pool play in the NEMCABB regional tournament last Thursday. The Mustangs were in a pool of only three teams, rather than four, after Smithville dropped out. The pool included Mantachie, Hatley and host team Mooreville. Mooreville opened up the day with […]
FULTON – Former IAHS and University of Southern Mississippi standout shortstop Brian Dozier has been a busy man lately. He recently signed a four-year, $20 million deal, he is currently second in the majors in runs scored, and he has also helped lead his Minnesota Twins club to second-place in the American League Central Division, […]
AMORY – The Mantachie Mustangs just missed out on a playoff spot in 2014 after graduating a ton of talent the season before. It didn’t help matters that leading rusher Logan Pettigo injured his knee at Nettleton and watched the final few division games propped up on crutches on the sideline. 2015 is a different […]
MANTACHIE – The Mantachie Mustangs crept into the MHSAA 2A state playoffs as the No. 4 seed from division 1-2A and quickly eliminated division 4-2A champion Leland. Round two would prove much more difficult as the Mustangs drew perennial powerhouse and division 2-2A runner-up the Eupora Eagles. Eupora would get all the offense that they […]
MANTACHIE – The Mantachie Mustangs dropped a 13-12 heartbreaker to South Pontotoc in their regular season finale last Tuesday, but went on to sweep their first round playoff series against the Leland Cubs on Friday. Rainy weather pushed the series start back from Thursday night to Friday, but the Mustangs didn’t mind the delay. […]
MANTACHIE – The Mantachie Mustangs moved into sole possession of the fourth and final playoff spot in division 1-2A last week with a pair of big wins over the Walnut Wildcats. The Mustangs took game one behind a complete game effort from starting pitcher Clayton Wood, who struck out nine batters over his seven innings […]
ECRU – The Mantachie Mustangs managed to pull out a win over the North Pontotoc Vikings in the first game of a double-header last Saturday, but it didn’t make the sting of dropping two one-run division contests to East Union hurt any less. After falling behind 4-1 after the first inning, Mantachie exploded for eight […]
FULTON – The Mantachie Mustangs traveled across the Tenn-Tom waterway to meet the IAHS Indians at Fulton City Park last Saturday in a regular-season exhibition between two Itawamba county squads. In what started out as a close contest, things began to get ugly very quickly for the visiting Mustangs in the bottom of the fifth […]
MANTACHIE – Hayden Farquhar and Ricky Houston combined to strike out seven batters over last Monday night’s game against the Baldwyn Bearcats, but the Mustangs found themselves on the short end of a 6-2 decision. Farquhar helped himself out with two hits at the plate, while Clayton Wood singled and drove in a run and […]
By SAM FARRIS Special to the Times HATLEY – While most folks were trying their best not to float away in all the rain water Friday night, the Mustangs were squaring off in Monroe county against the division rival Hatley Tigers. Unfortunately, the weather was not the only thing working against the Mantachie that night; […]
NEW SITE – Rain has slowed the Mantachie Mustangs’ baseball season to almost a stand-still, having only played two games entering last week. Despite the limited number of games and times that the team has even been able to get on a dry field, Mantachie started very fast against the New Site Royals last week. […]
By SCOTTY NICHOLS Sports Writer HATLEY – It’s been a long season for the Mantachie Mustangs. A very long season. The Mustangs went into last week’s division 1-2A tournament still in search of their first victory of the season. Things looked grim from the beginning as the Mustangs drew the Walnut Wildcats, a team that […]
By SAM FARRIS Special to the Times NEW SITE – Last Tuesday, the Mantachie ball clubs were in action against their bitter rivals from Prentiss County: the New Site Royals. The Royals are known for courting talented teams that are infamous for shooting teams off the floor. This perennial trait was in full swing on […]
