It was another great battle between to of the top Class 1 teams in the state as the South Shelby Cardinals traveled to Westran Saturday to take on the state ranked Hornets. South Shelby came up short falling to Westran 24-20 in the State Quarterfinal game.
   The two teams battled for the fifth year in a row (all five games at Westran), with all being close competitive games except for last year’s. It looked as though this one might get ugly as well. The Hornets took the opening kickoff and drove 71 yards on 13 plays, scoring on an 11 yard run by senior quarterback Zane Jacoby. The point after was no good and the Hornets held a 6-0 lead with 5:47 to play in the opening quarter.
   Cardinal quarterback Brett Threlked ran around the left side for 18 yards on first down to the 50 yard line. A procedure penalty hurt the Cardinals and would ultimately be more than they could make up on the drive. They were forced to punt.
   Taking over on their own 20 yard line, the Hornets turned to their all-stater Jacoby who weaved his way down the right sideline for an 80 yard touchdown on the first play of the drive. The point after again was no good and the Hornets held a 12-0 lead over the Cardinals with 2:55 to play in the first quarter.
   The Cardinals started the next drive from their own 42 yard line. Trace Windsor picked up six yards on first down and Threlkeld got five more on second down. Windsor then rambled for 18 yards to the Westran 29 yard line. Two play later Threlked ran for seven yards to the Hornet 18 giving the Cardinals a first down. He then dropped back and found Chase Morrow in back left corner of the endzone for an 18 yard touchdown pass. The point after by Marcel Pries was good making the score 12-7 Westran with 23 seconds to play in the first quarter.

The South Shelby Middle School Lady Birds faced the Brookfield Lady Bulldogs on Monday, November 10th, at home for their season opener. “It was your typical first game with lots of jitters and missed layups,” stated Coach Michaele Moore. “The first half of play, their full court press worked really well, but their crib shots weren’t falling.” The two teams found themselves tied at 11 apiece at the end of one.
   In the second half their shots started falling and they were able to get the ball inside to their post. The Lady Birds outscored the Lady Bulldogs 20-11 making the final score 31-22.
   Meredith O’Neal had six steals followed by Kurstyn Johnson with five. Sage Simpson had eight rebounds and Diane Mayes had five. O’Neal was also the leading scorer with eight, Simpson and Mayes each had seven, Johnson had six, Sadie Wear had two and Isabella Hutcherson finished with one point.
   On Tuesday night, November 11, the Lady Birds traveled to Macon and faced a very good basketball team. The Lady Birds lost the game 36-30.
