The Tallulah Academy Trojans will be looking to bounce back from a close loss last week tonight when TA meets undefeated Manchester Academy on the road in Yazoo City, Miss.
The Trojans kicked off September play Friday at home with a one-score loss decided in the fourth quarter.
The Trojans traded blows with the visiting Riverdale Academy Rebels all game and after one quarter trailed by just 2 points, behind 8-6.
TA was outscored 22-14 in the second period, taking a 10-point, 30-20 deficit with them into the locker room at halftime.
The Trojans owned the third quarter, outscoring the Rebels 14-0, to take the lead, 34-30. But a fourth-quarter Riverdale score would put things out of reach for TA, as the Trojans fell in a close, 38-34 decision.
Friday’s loss leaves TA a 1-2 on the year as the Trojans prepare to hit the road tonight to meet the undefeated Mavericks in a non-district matchup.
The following week, the Trojans will be back in Tallulah for homecoming, matching up with Prentiss Academy, before beginning district play the following week, Sept. 24, with Prairie View Academy at home.
Tonight’s matchup with Manchester is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. in Yazoo City.
