The football field might as well have been a slip n slide.
North Mississippi had something like four inches of rain falling from the skies on Friday, but both New Albany and East Union decided to play through it.
It was a little messy, there were plenty of slips on the grass, but both Union County squads toughed it out.
New Albany fell to the Corinth Warriors 24-16, with a comeback of sorts in the second half for the Bulldogs.
NAHS entered half-time with a 17-0 shutout by the Warriors, but a picked up fumble by Tyrone Vance placed the Bulldogs on the board in the third quarter.
With a successful two-point conversion, the Bulldogs closed the gap 24-8 with another score by Devin Wilson coming mid-way through the fourth quarter.
Due to the rain, I elected not to risk my recording equipment for post-game quotes from Coach Price though I'm planning to speak to him Sunday afternoon after film sessions with the Bulldogs.
East Union continues to roll along, now sitting at 5-0 for the season with their come-from-behind 20-14 defeat of Strayhorn. The win is a big one for the Urchins, who lost to the Mustangs last year 59-22.
As a note, the Urchins are 5-0 due to TCPS forfeiting their 2012 season in August.
EUHS will have their final bye week beginning on Monday with division play beginning on October 4 with a road game at New Site.
New Albany will play its final non-division contest on September 28 against North Pontotoc. The game also marks the 2013 Homecoming Ceremony for the Bulldogs.
