TCPS captures North half title

Feb. 13—TUPELO — Tupelo Christian now has the opportunity to take care of some unfinished business.

Tupelo Christian defeated Mooreville 2-0 on Tuesday night at Tupelo High School to capture the North half title and clinch a spot in the Class I state championship game once again. The Eagles bagged a couple of goals in the first half and held on for the win. Tupelo Christian will face St. Patrick in a rematch of last year's title game, which TCPS lost 6-0.
