All MHSAA Quarterfinal Matchups (Girls) 

By Kelby Johnson

Friday, February 25 

1A

Biggersville @ Ingomar (Possibly the two best teams in 1A, defending champs are at home) SEE THE IN DEPTH PREVIEW HERE

Bay Springs @ Lumberton (Bay Springs has been the best 1A in the South all year.) 

West Union @ Blue Mountain (Blue Mountain beat West Union by one earlier this season.)

McEvans @ Sebastopol (McEvans is the favorite on the road.) 

2A 

Calhoun City @ Belmont (City will need to play their A game to win at Belmont.) 

Velma Jackson @ West Lincoln (West Lincoln has been rolling the second half of the season.)

New Site @ East Webster (This should be a nail biter in Webster County.)

Newton @ Lake (Lake has beaten them by 21 and 13 this year. Newton is the only #4 seed remaining. Lake has 15 wins in a row) 

3A 

Nettleton @ Booneville (Booneville won 44-42 in an earlier matchup.)

Franklin County @ Tylertown (Franklin County has won 17 straight.) 

Kossuth @ Noxubee County (Differing styles meet up here; Kossuth can win on the road.) 

Jefferson Davis County @ Union (Union has been the 3A favorite in the South.) 

4A 

Tishomingo County @ Pontotoc (Two great teams; Pontotoc has 24 wins in a row.) SEE IN DEPTH PREVIEW HERE

Purvis @ Pass Christian (Purvis 28-2, Pass 22-5, Big Matchup) 

South Pontotoc @ Choctaw Central (It’s hard to win at Choctaw; South has won 9 of 10.) 

Moss Point @ Newton County (Moss Point might be favored on the road.) 

5A 

Canton @ Columbus (Toss up game. Columbus always tough.) 

Brookhaven @ Laurel (I expect a close game in Jones County. Both programs have been successful.) 

Neshoba Central @ Vicksburg (Vicksburg is very good…Neshoba Central is elite.) 

West Jones @ Wayne County (These two split a pair of games earlier in the season.) 

6A 

Germantown @ Tupelo (This should be a major battle between two talented rosters.) 

Pascagoula @ Harrison Central (Harrison Central won big in an early season game.) 

Horn Lake @ Clinton (Both teams have an impressive resume. Clinton will be strong at home.) 

Gulfport @ Meridian (Meridian is poised to be in the finals.)
