Warren Central basketball players Dartton Allen and Del’Javien Harried both had great games against Ridgeland Tuesday.

Allen scored 15 points in the 52-45 loss to the Titans. He is in his junior year at Warren Central and impressing his team and coaches with his athleticism.

Harried also scored 15 points Tuesday and was a big reason why the Vikings made a comeback after trailing by 14 points. He is in his senior season and averaged 6.1 points per game last year under head coach Bruce Robinson.

Allen and Harried have both stepped up for Warren Central early in the season and the Vikings have a great chance at having a winning year with these two dedicated players.

The Hinds Community College Eagle’s defense forced three turnovers and shutout the Pearl River Community College Wildcat’s offense to lead the Eagles to a 34-14 home victory Thursday evening.

With the win, Hinds improved to 3-1 overall this season.

Hinds jumped out to a 21-0 lead with 1:41 left on the clock in the first quarter via three consecutive scoring drives.

With 4:16 left on the clock in the second quarter, PRCC responded when they forced, recovered and returned a fumble for a touchdown to cut Hinds lead to 21-7.

Hinds answered right back with another long scoring drive, which was capped off by a 36-yard touchdown run to give them a 27-7 lead with 2:07 remaining in the first half.

PRCC scored their last points of the game with 1:08 remaining in the first half when they scooped and scored another Hinds fumble, which cut the Eagles lead to 27-14.

Hinds had the final say, however, as their offense put together an 85-yard touchdown drive to increase their lead to 34-14 with 2:44 left in the third quarter.

The Eagle defense went on to close out the game and give Hinds the 34-14 victory.

Hinds was scheduled to play East Central Community College and Copiah-Lincoln Community College over the next two weeks, but both of those colleges have canceled the remainder of their seasons due to concerns over COVID-19.

It is still to-be-determined if Hinds will play another game this season. If this was the Eagle’s last football game this year, they conclude their 2020 season with a 3-1 overall record.
